Weekend at last!

Hi there bloggy friends! Don't know about you, but I'm just a tad bit excited that its weekend! The week went really fast and I was very busy but weekends are just so much more relaxed. I haven't done an aweful lot of scrapping this week but I do have another layout created from my Handmade by Suzanne DT kit to share today. :)   I really like the colours in the 'Miss Nelly' range and I just love how the black background in the pic goes with these papers.
I used my Crafter's Workshop 'Cherry Blossoms' template and white paint, then doodled in black pen around it. The red flowers were punched using the red dotted paper and the EK Success 'Flower Power' punch.
 The pink felt rose was so easy to make using the Sizzix 3D Flowers Die. :)
 And just love the Martha Stewart 'Garden Gate' Deep Edger punch.
I've entered this layout into Vicki's Challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50's Cyber Crop. The criteria can be found by doing a word search, so I can't reveal it yet.  The CC ends this Sunday at midnight.
That's all for today! I hope you are all well and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!  Thank you so much for visiting and for you lovely comments.
Take care.
