Kite Flying

Good Morning Everyone, 
I hope you have had a good weekend. I'm afraid I didn't get my lie in....the kids got up at the crack of dawn to a garden full of snow, so we spent most of the day outside. It rained on Saturday night so all the snow had disappeared by Sunday morning.
A lady in the village regularly asks me to make cards with kites on them, and I recently found this stamp.  It's from Papermania and is called Kite Flying.
I've coloured it with my promarkers and paper pieced the kite.
The papers were a freebie in a magazine quite a while ago. I finished off with a bit of bling!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Simon Says Stamp - Paper Piecing
Make it Monday - Linky Party
Allsorts Challenge - Masculine
Glitter n Sparkle - Male card
Thanks for visiting my little blog today and for all your comments and encouragement.

I'm sorry you didn't get your lie in, my seventeen year old son always says to me 'you spent years telling me not to get up so early and now you complain because I don't get up' - how very true!
