SPRING IS ON IT'S WAY..............................

Morning all!

Hope you are all well on this Thursday morning and didn't we have a gorgeous day yesterday! The sun was shining for most of the day and it was lovely to do a little gardening and getting things tidied up for Spring! I just love Spring, my fave time of the year and just watching all the bulbs popping up .............. just scrummy!!

Anyway onto today's card and I have used another un-inked stamp (oh, I'm really bad lol!) and this gorgeous image is from Crafters Companions "S.W.A.L.K" range. Have you seen the new one's?? they are just fabulous too, but I must be good and wait till I use all the other stamps first lol!! I have teamed these cutie's with some papers from Pink Petticoat and some ribbon ~ nice and simples again :o)

These sweetie's are going into the following Challenges :-
Friday Sketcher # 141 ~ Fab Sketch
Cupcake Inspirations  # 98 ~ Photo inspiration

Fab card, Vicky. I must confess, I wasn't such a good girl and my new ones arrived yesterday so you'll be seeing one of those pretty soon! As for the puddy cat - she's such a gorgeous ball of fur!! I love cats when they're super fluffy like that and she looks like a real cutie!! Tell her that a lady should keep her legs closed though LOL!! Hugs, Marie xx
