Is SPRING Really On It's Way............?

Good Morning to you, and its a bright, sunny, but chilly one here! The last couple of days have seen some brighter weather generally, and I for one am keeping EVERYTHING crossed that we are heading into some Springtime cheer!

This week at FOR FUN CHALLENGES we are lucky to be sponsored by SWEET n SASSY, so yes, there's a prize up for grabs! YAY!!

Our theme for the week is....

 ***  SPRING  ***

Soooooo easy, so no excuses, get creative and join in! We want to see anything/everything SPRING and with a bit of luck, it might just work and banish the snow, frost and wind, and make way for the weather we are all longing for!

So, I used an oh-so-cute Sweet n Sassy image to create this Spring, Spring-card!

The image has been coloured with Promarkers. I printed a spring-green polka dot digi DP straight onto card and cut, scored and folded into the Spring-Card shape. The flowers are from a Nitwits collection called Tiptoe Tulips and have been individually hand cut and used to make a border around the image.

Finally I added some green organza ribbon to the base of the card.

There are SO MANY challenges out there in blogland atm, so I would like to enter my card into the following:

Thanks for looking, and Happy Crafting!
