 Hello everyone,

Glad you enjoyed my weekend in pictures with me, and now the week has lurched forward at warp speed and we find ourselves at Wednesday already, but the good thing with that is, it is time a for a new challenge over at..

LITTLE RED WAGON  where our fabulous hostess is Brenda and she wants to see...SPRING FLOWERS..

I love any type of flowers and colours, so decides to fish out all my craft flowers and die cuts and use them for an explosion box..

The top of the box..

papers changed colour, thank you camera!!

And ta daaa...

My center piece is the birdbath die and birds..

My panels are really the same, was not sure how to mix it up, so made three more after this to get used to being free..type of thing.

Mulberry paper flowers, die cut flowers, and each panel laying
 on a doily die which was the perfect size.

I place a white circle inside each doily and no idea why..

See, each panel is the same, which is okay, but had fun mixing up the next day..

Except this one..what happened?

So, there we go..

Do come over and join us with your Spring Flowers


Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
