Do you have a crafting bucket list, or a wish list of items you'd love to have, projects you'd love to make, techniques you'd like to try, etc etc ...

I know I have ,,, and today one of these is realised, well nearly ..... I have been invited onto Mo's Design Team as a Guest Designer for the challenge that started today, and for the next one that starts on 12 June.  But first things first ... Let me inspire you to join the challenge over at Bronte and Bella's Challenge Blog, where the challenge for this fortnight is 

 "New Beginnings" 

(wedding, baby, graduation, retirement, etc.)

and this is my card :

The image featured on my card is the adorable "Monday's Child (b) available in Mo's store here,

I coloured the image using alcohol markers and  a white gel pen :

Used to create my card are the following from my hoarded stash:

white CS card base
green DP
blue CS mat
corner punch with button and twine detail

The sentiment is my own, computer generated, printed on white cardstock, cut out with fancy die and matted onto a blue cs base  There is a little green watering can button tied with twine as the embellishment
