Spring is in the air...

...and it's also the start of a new challenge at


Helen has chosen the theme " Spring has sprung" and I think it's safe to say that it's a real possibility!! I now have a few of my  daffodils in bloom together with crocuses and primroses. The granny bonnets have emerged from the soil and all in all I am beginning to feel a little bit more optimistic!! 

Here is my spring creation


I had a jolly nice time flicking through my paper pads looking for some springtime colours and found the perfect thing in MME The Sweetest Thing " Tangerine".
 This was another base that I put together last week using the fantabulous LOTV sketches. The image is from a stamp collection that I love by The Cat's Pyjamas and this one is called Kick some Grass. The sentiment is from Field of pinwheels. I used Pro/Flexmarkers to colour the image to match the paper and finally added some pearls and a felt strip that co-ordinated perfectly. 

I really hope that you will find some spring inspiration from my team mates and play along for the chance to win a surprise package, just remember though that something on your card must be at least six months old. 

Some challenges that I am joining

Allsorts #248 - Spring is Coming
Created With Love #77 - Think Spring

Hope this has put a "spring" in your step!! Have a good day and thanks for calling xx
