I'm super excited this morning as my favourite challenge blog turns 3 - can you believe we've been making CAS cards for 3 years?  When I think back to my first one layer card - oh my - how things have changed!   What is even more exciting for me is that I'm guesting on the challenge this week - eek - I told you today was exciting!!  The theme this week is rainbows and here's may take on it

Isn't he just the smiliest leprechaun?   He's from Papersmooches "A Magical Spring" (yes I'm wishing away the rest of winter - had enough now!) which has some really useful images as well as fun sentiments.   I stamped him onto some watercolour card so I could colour him with my distress markers (are you fed up of me saying how much I love them - sorry I'll get bored of them soon I promise!) and I fussy cut him, the crock pot and coins.  I used another piece of watercolour paper to freehand my rainbow with the markers and then I stuck the images in place over the top.  The sentiment is from the same set.

The third exciting thing is that my new store is also this month's sponsor at Less is More so if you play along throughout February you could win a little spending spree in the Store ;-)
