More Sping flowers



Good Morning Peeps, is it cold again or what and there as I thinking Spring was all but here.

Thank you so much everyone who has joined in my blog celebrations so far with some really stunning creations, but I know lots of you are still thinking on what you will create and there is still plenty of time to take part so no need to panic yet.......you can check it out from the post above.

I have a quick couple of shares for you which have a feel of Spring to them despite the snow which is falling outside, the one above a quite simple and straightforward card using some new Spellbinders and Ruth's Lily punch and stamp set.............. I think I could play with these all day because they are such a joy to work with. Links to stockists on the thumbnails below.

I would like to enter this into the following:

Artistic Inspirations - Flowers
Crafty Passions - 2 colours


My second share is my mid month inspirational piece for FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges, I've used this sweet little girl called Girl on a Windy Hill and paper pieced her to match the backing paper and Roses which are made with a Marianne Die.

I would like to enter this into the following:

Paper Mill challenge - Easter
The Squirrel and the Fox - Spring or Autumn

Hope you all have a good Tuesday and as always thank you so much for popping in, your comments and kind words are always greatly appreciated.

Brenda, your golden, springy cards are perfect for the month of March - especially the windy little girl. Pretty paper pieced dress - I always want to make a card doing that technique but always forget. Even your rolled flowers match! A lovely butterscotch plaid on top - such pretty layers! hugs, de
