Spring Inspirations Project

Hello Lovely Bloggers

Hope you are all having a very Happy Easter!  We have rain here today, but lots of chocolate too, to keep us happy.  OH and I are still recovering from a dreadful virus so chocolate will definitely help.

The lovely and talented Christine Emberson over at http://hope-chances.blogspot.com/ is showing a Gallery on Bank Holiday Monday of Spring Inspirations Projects.  Christine asked what inspires us when we think of Spring.  Well, for me, it has to be butterflies and flowers.  I am absolutely dotty about butterflies and I love Spring flowers, especially daffodils and bluebells.

I made this card specifically for Christine's gallery.  I have had the stamp for years and not inked it up for ages, so I thought it deserved an airing.  I love the butterflies and flowers in her hair and as I am into teal colours at the moment I matted and layered and added roses in shades of teal and turquoise.


I hope you like my card, if you do, please leave me a comment as I love to read them and I always try to visit the blogs of those who are kind enough to leave comments, to return the favour.  Enjoy the rest of your Easter break.  Crafty hugs, Anne x

Edit: for some reason this post is late - apologies, blogger is not playing ball today.  Also, sorry, the pic is a bit wonky!
