Spring has sprung

Hello Everyone,

Well, I think spring HAS sprung.

Driving down a street today to a new client... and the street is lined with Cherry trees.. all flowering and so very pretty...daffodils flowering everywhere, and baby lambs frolicking in the paddocks.

Made a card yesterday with a Tilda.

Tilda dressed as a bee.....for a challenge at hooked on craft and the theme is 'Spring has sprung'

Coloured with copics, pencils,and chalk.
Added a flowery sticker border, it has tiny butterflies and ladybugs on it.
Clear sparkly bling blings in the centre of the flowers. A spellbinder Butterfly.No DP's, just card.Sentiment says ' Wishing you sunshine every day'

I'm not very chatty today, I'm so clients always leave me shattered till the next visit...then I have my feet on the ground and I'm away again.

Talking about away...I'm having a treat this weekend, my friend is taking me to the Quilt and craft show out of town, in Hamilton, this weekend, I'm so excited, we went there last year too, had a ball. Lots of scrapbook stalls, and demos, stuff like that.

Ok, I'm done....Have my big boys coming for tea tonight...they gave me a large tray of casserole meat and said we will be there at 6pm...gotta luv em'.....always a method in their madness, but lovely boys to there mum.

Aww gorgeous card Chrissy, I love the sweet Tilda you've used, I coloured her at the weekend as she's been neglected in my draw for too long.
Have a lovely time with your big boys, I'm already longing for Spring again as we are just into Autumn

How sweet Chrissy. So glad spring has arrived for you and what a beautiful time of the year it is. We are heading into fall, which is one of my favorite seasons of the year. We must be at opposite ends of the Love the Maggie Bee and the swing. You know she's in heaven with all that nectar surrounding her. Enjoy your beautiful day. "Hugs" Carol

I had to quick check out where you live. Now I know why Spring has sprung. Here we are in a late Summer and fall is soon to arrive.

I really like the way you did the flower and butterfly border on your card. Isn't Matilda a cutie?

Congratulations on your First Birthday at MIM. This is my first time playing and very impressed with all the art I am finding!

Hello my friend. I hope you enjoyed your boys tonight. It is so fun to hear about spring when we are falling fast into Autumn here. The mornings have been about 49 degrees and by afternoon we are hitting the high 90s. I know that in couple weeks the lows are going to become the highs around here. I love fall, but I tend to hang onto Summer as long as I can. H I am a go without shoes as long and as often as I can kind of girl. lol This card is just adorable and surely makes me think Spring. Hugs, Lisa
