Spring blooms

Hello everyone and I hope you are enjoying a good weekend. It's mighty chilly here today so I thought I would take the opportunity to share a jolly spring card that I put together over the past few days.

I coloured the cute little PB hedgie with SN pencils and blending solution to coordinate with the Trimcraft papers. I had a bit of a die cutting session too, though I won't bore you with the details!!

As luck should have it there are quite a few suitable challenges too.

Penny Black and More - Blossoms and bows
Crafting Musketeers #23 - Ribbons & pearls (on the butterfly)
Bunny Zoe's - Spring colours
Little Claire #55 - Springtime
Fantasy Stampers #32 - Spring is in the air
Allsorts - Flowers & pearls

Thanks for visiting, you are always welcome xx

Aw such a sweet hedgepig, love your choice of DPs, just what we need today, so grey and cold outside.
We had our first lamb casualty last night, AL found it by the pond this morning. We rescued two yesterday and tried to bottle feed them but they kept one to tube feed at the farm, Max was behaving like a mother hen and kept us up most of the night whilst the lamb slept tucked up next to the range. It is now in the pens with his mum! Hope Al doesn't find anymore tonight!
Oh, thanks for sharing at Fantasy Stampers too! :)
