In the spring time

Hello folks and a very happy Easter Saturday to you all

It is a four day weekend here in the UK and the first Bank holidays of the year. And in true British style the weather is wild and windy so I am tucked up in my craft room busily completing my Easter cards although I do need to venture out to the opticians later.
Today sees the launch of a new challenge at Fantasy Stampers and this fortnight our new challenge is - 
In the Springtime
Please remember that we are a stamping challenge and the main feature of your project must be stamped (no digi stamps please).
Here is my DT card for the challenge -

  • hair - ginger and brunette
  • clothes - ruby, carrot, sapphire and pineapple
  • hens - oak, brunette and wheat
  • corn - dark slate, brunette and ginger
  • grass - cypress and oregano
  • sky - aqua
  • chicks - wheat, beeswax and clay

  1. What an adorable image Lesley and so perfect for an Easter card, it's rather reminiscent of a photo of me many years ago.

    Enjoy the rest of the Easter weekend and sounds like your craft room is the best place with our traditional bank holiday weather.
