So Long Whimsie Doodles.....

Hi Lovely Blogging Peeps....

Today I'm a little sad, as I have decided it's time for me to step down from the Whimsie Doodles Design Team...  

I've enjoyed being part of the team and using the fabulous images for a couple of years now - but it's about time I started to be able to use all the other wonderful stamps and images that I buy and that just sit on my desk and wait........ and wait!  
I chose to use Spring Lizzie for my card - and yes... there's very little pink..... I don't know if I'm happy or not with this!  Her hat is sort of peachy - not quite the nice pink I love - so not counted!  And I used yellow!  That's a colour I generally save that to only use on chicks! LOL!

It's a bit warmer here today than the cold 4/5 deg C conditions we had yesterday...  My lovely OH and I walked to the end of our road where the Tour De Yorkshire was passing by......  they'd had rain and snow on their way - I have every respect for those cyclists!!

An amazing sight!

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting...


  1. Your little card is just pure spring delight, Christine. And yes those riders all deserves a winning medal.

  2. This is such a pretty spring card, I love the combination of colours you've used. It definitely brightened my day hunnie.

    We have the Tour De Yorkshire coming through Middlesbrough - we have one of the start stages right in the town centre, and it travels through one of our parks and then onto to Great Ayton & Stokesley. It's such a great event for the area - the OH will be going to watch. :)

    Hugs x

  3. A gorgeous card Christine, she's adorable and beautifully coloured.
    I have stood on a cricket field for 2 hours this morning, I'm so cold I still can't feel my feet! Need sunshine!! Oh well that's the cricket season for you!
    Have a lovely weekend

  4. Such a lovely card, even without the pink. I bet they are really going to miss you and your gorgeous creations!
    I haven't watched any cycling in yonks... My dad used to race (I did for a couple of years too when I was a kid), and we spent every Sunday at the club watching him win, lol. x

  5. What a beautiful card, Christine! I love the design of this one, and the sweet image!
    I'm going to miss you sharing these lovely images but I know you'll have lots more goodness to show me! Enjoy your weekend! :o)

  6. I can't imagine this being pink because it is so perfect and spring-like the way it is.
    Cute little gal set in front of the pretty embossing. It's a great card!

  7. This is so sweet and I love the spring colours. I'm sure the team will miss you and your gorgeous creations.
    Have a great weekend.

  8. Hi Christine, this is amazing - your colouring is beautiful and I love your colour scheme and gorgeous card design. You will be missed on the DT for certain but it is never a bad thing to free up some time for yourself! Have a super weekend...I love the cycling!
    - watching it of course as opposed to doing it!

  9. Aawww this is gorgeous - love the embossed centre panel and the cute little image. Great Tour De Yorkshire pics too - Michelle x

  10. Adorable card Christine - love the colours you have used.
    We've had all sorts of weather here this week - even had four seasons in one day!!!
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
