Spring Challenges

Hi and Welcome to my blog.

What beautiful weather we are having in Devon at the moment, gorgeous! and puts me in the perfect mood to make cards for all the Spring Challenges

My card today is for two challenges

Penny Black Saturday Challenge ~ Spring has Sprung
Penny Black at Allsorts ~ Welcome Spring

Materials used for this card:

Background papers ~ Forever Friends Spring Time 6"x6" double sided paper pad
Ribbon ~ Anita's everyday ribbon ~ yellow striped
Penny Black image ~ Hugs clear stamps coloured with pencils
Brad and flowers from crafty stash.

I thought I would share with you my beautiful Daffodils flowering ~ The first time I have planted Spring bulbs in my garden (never been in a house long enough ~ moved far to many times!!)

Isn't this weather wonderful, really does re-charge the batteries
(hubby describes me as a little solar panel ~ I soak up the sunshine)

 I hope you are enjoying the weather where ever you are today.

I will be back over the weekend to share another cupcake order I have for Saturday.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog
