Spring has Sprung!

Morning everyone.  My goodness I cannot believe how warm it is here on the south east coast of the UK at the moment.  The garden is just springing to life and all the birds are twittering.  So as all the spring flowers are looking gorgeous at the moment I thought I'd share a floral card with you.

All the images on this card came from my Swirly Flutters 'n' Floral stamp sheet.  The background for this card was sponged using Bundled Sage Distress ink and then stamped using the text and swirl stamp from the Swirly Flutters 'n' Florals stamp sheet along with Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass Distress inkpads.

The colouring was done with Copic markers then some glitter glue was added for some subtle sparkle.

All products used on this card came from The Craft Barn.

I'd like to enter this card into the Bloomin' Blossoms challenge over on the Allsorts Challenge Blog.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Hello Kay

I agree, it is lovely to feel the sunshine and see everything springng into leaf and flower.

Can the weather keep it up for the Easter holidays I wonder.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation and joining in my Bloomin’ Blossoms theme at Allsorts this week.

Hi Kay,

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for the reminder re Vampire Diaries. I just got back from holiday yesterday morning, so I wouldn't have known it had started again if not for your reminder. I have set to record this Tuesday's episode with a series link...... I am sure i can catch up even though I missed last week's episode!

Anyway, I hope that you are now on the road to recovery after your op and your recent fall - I am sure that Tuesday night eye candy will help you feel better!

Bye for now.

Sharon xx
