SPRING AROUND THE CORNER?...................................

Morning all!

Well as my title says, is spring around the corner? well I hope so lol! Was really mild yesterday even tho' there wasn't a great deal of sun ~ so fingers crossed it will start warming up slowly ~ even tho' it's very damp here today!

So onto today's card and I dug out one of my fave Sarah Kay stamps, which I haven't inked up in VERY long time (shame on me !) and I have teamed her up with some gorgeous papers from Nitwits. Again I have used my fave flower punch and a few wee embellishments ~ nice and simple :o)

This cutie is going into the following challenges :o)
Papertake Weekly # 53 ~ Fab Sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges # C4C76 ~ Flowers
Oldie but Goodies # 13 ~ Spring is in the Air!

Spring Blossom ~ Sarah Kay

Sorry I didn't do much commenting last night, I was exhausted after my day out and It took us 3.5 hours to get home ~ all I can say is the M25 and the Dartford Tunnel grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

Promise to catch up today and pop back later for something yummy!

Debbie said...

Lovely card Vicky. I have some Nit Wit card down on my list for Harrogate, it's nice cardstock isn't it?
I hate it when it takes too long to get home, it means you are always too tired to look at your stash!
I am lucky this March, my friend Angie has paid for us both to stay overnight in a local hotel in Harrogate, so we can go again on the Sunday...Oh I am spoilt..
I love this cute SK image, It's ages since i have seen her used. Debbiexx

This is gorgeous Vicky. This was the very first stamp I bought after seeing your lovely creations on docrafts. Lovely layout and colours. I managed to source the Nellie Snellen punches on ebay and have ordered one - think it's the right one. Thanks again for all your advice and support. Hope you are enjoying your new stash.
