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!

Image - 'Duckling' - Penny Black
Sentiment - LOTV
Flowers - a mixture from my stash
Butterfly charm - I can't remember where I got these!
Gems - Anita's

Tools used: Spellbinders 'Floral Oval' die and Dovecraft 'Floral Muse' embossing folder


'Flowers' - The Crazy Challenge

'Anything Goes' - Little Miss Muffet

'All about Birthdays' - Dream Valley

'Bingo' March Challenge  - Catch The Bug  (embossing/ribbon/sentiment and bird if you count the duck!)

'Feature A Creature' March Challenge - Penny Black & More

'Spring Colours or Easter' - Whimsy Stamps

Thanks for visiting and Happy Easter!
