Crafting for all Seasons #47 Spring into Spring

Good afternoon all. Midweek again so it will soon be the weekend for all of you still working!
Off out to lunch again today with a friend, we were supposed to be trying out a new Marston's Pine Marten due to open this week. Unfortunately they have water problems and now won't open for about a month! Guess we'll be availing ourselves of one of the local hostelries instead.

I'm hoping to get to the SECC tomorrow to meet a few crafty friends and no doubt spend a few pennies. Anyone else going tomorrow?

Today it's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Spring into Spring". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and the DT were given images to use although I've used "Overdawall Puppy". 

Image has been coloured with promarkers. Papers are from Pink Petticoat. Dies from Spellbinders. Ribbon, button and pearls from my stash. Sentiment computer generated.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.

  6. Lovely Spring card Carol. Note to self ... no going to Spain so early next year so that I can go to the SECC.
