Spring Has Sprung Yay!!

I must admit, when this challenge title was suggested a while ago, I thought maybe it was a tad optimistic, however, the weather does seem to be on the turn at last and it really does feel as if spring is on the way - thank goodness! So, get your crafty hat on and dust off your spring themed stamps and get entering our challenge this fortnight. As usual, all the details and inspiration can be found at Passion for Promarkers

For my DT card, I have dug out an old Penny Black favourite - one of many!

I tried for ages to cut a pretty edge onto a card blank, but for some reason it just didn't come out right and so I opted for the easy option and found some pre-cut card blanks at Hobbycraft!

Cute Critters

I actually made this DT card well before the date of this challenge at Passion for Promarkers, trouble is, I was so organised that I completely forgot until today that I needed to post it!
It's a lovely challenge this week  - 'Cute Critters' and I defy any crafter not to have some stamp in their stash that will fit the theme this week! I have used one of my all time favourite 'cute' images:
