SPRING is definately in the Air!

Afternoon folks,

I am a wee bit late with today's post, sorry about that, I've been up all night rather poorly :(

Today, over at THE CRAFTY PAD challenge, we are celebrating the arrival of Spring in style! Our challenge for you is.......
We want to see Spring colours, Spring flowers, or anything that makes YOU think of Spring! I am sure those of you in the UK will feel inspired by the wonderful weather we are currently experiencing, so we hope to see lots of wonderfully uplifting Spring creations this week!
We also have a brand new sponsor this week too.......

Our very own Lorraine has generously offered the lucky winner £10 to spend in her wonderful online'll find a plethera of crafting goodies there to feast your eyes on!

All of the DT have used images available from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS, so please pop over and take a look at their wonderful creations.

Here's my card:

I used Boy & Girl at Wishing Well and coloured it up with my Promarkers. The sentiment was a freebie from Sentiments 4 You.

I used some really cute digi papers in green and blue, which have been matted and layered with blue and green bazzill card. I cut a border using a Fiskars border punch  and tied a blue organza ribbon around it.

I punched some flowers with my Woodware punches and butterflies with my Craft Tonic punch and finished them off with flat-backed pearls and Card Candy.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
That's it for now.........enjoy the lovely weather!

PS Don't forget there's still time to enter our Altered CD competition where we are offering some FAB prizes!
