A little colour in January

I am still being delighted by a little colour from the plucky little violas in my ports in the garden.
I deadhead them regularly and they just keep blooming and blooming. 

 I also spied that my bulbs, planted in the autumn, are pushing up. 
We are promised a bit of a cold blast of weather for the next week but I am sure that my bulbs will keep snug.
I also have a little ray of sunshine in the darling Daisy has come to stay for a few days.
We have been crafting, especially die cutting which she finds really fascinating.  I have lots of new crafting bits to show her too. Santa was kind to Nanna, so perhaps I must have been good after all 😃

I have been also making some stock for Dotty's and today's card challenge entry is a very cheery and colourful one.

This is a simply print digi image from Lili of the Valley. The stamped sentiment tag is also LOTV. I have used my Tim Holtz swirling stars die on the background...I think this is my favourite ever die!
It is for sale at Dotty's Tea House, Carshalton High Street, Surrey, SM5 2AE

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Mix it up 1/5 anything goes
Love to craft 1/5 anything goes
Dies R us 1/3 anything goes with dies in the store mine is the Memory Box stitched rectangle I used to die cut the image.
