Spring Into Spring!

Firstly my regular visitors may have noticed that I have given my Blog a facelift, it was about time. I wanted something a bit bigger, fresher and brighter and  I even managed to customize my header, how about that! Hope you like it :)

Well, Spring, what is that? I don’t think there is a single spot in the UK that can boast even a glimpse of Spring on the horizon, luckily in Blogland we are very good at pretending! I have several LOTV stamps which I adore, but don’t seem to get around to using at the moment due to DT cards and a lack of crafting time! So today’s card makes a lovely change as I have used an older (but still oh so cute) LOTV stamp.

  8. Adorable and so gorgeous Nat.

    LOVE your new look blog,your header looks fabulous...Wish I could do something like this with mine, I have just changed mine to a new template which is not what I want at all.I can no longer add my cards in extra large size which I like to do and really want just a plain white background and wide like yours but don't know how to.
