Spring Time

Well I don't know about where you are, but I'd certainly say Spring has sprung here!  What a great week we've had weather wise, it's been dry, it's been sunny and dare I say it... it's been warm!

The daffodils are a mass of sunshine yellow at the moment and it's a joy to be outside again - albeit with a jumper!

Anyway, back to inside activities first, and this weeks Saturday challenge over at Catch the Bug.  This time our theme is, unsurprisingly

Spring Time

and with so many great Bugaboo Spring stamps available this year, the only problem is, deciding which one to use!  I went with Spring Friends available here.



So, my card uses Basic Grey papers and as always, is coloured by Promarker.

Challenges;
Kraftyhands - Sketch
Passion for Promarkers - So Sentimental
Thru The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Papertake - Spring has Sprung
Creative Card Crew - Spring
CHPP - Patterned papers
Crafters Cafe - Spring
Creative Knockouts - Spring is in the air

Sorry I haven't been around much this week, it's always the same when the boys are at home - too many other things to do.  So far this week, Colin has sat and passed his theory driving test, we've viewed various accomodation for him for the Autumn when he hopefully starts Uni. We've been visiting, gardening, shopping and basically doing things together - got to make the most of their time at home! Jx


Also winner at Creative Knockouts and getting a prize from Sweet n Sassy Stamps - no blinkie from CK!
