Spring Has Sprung.....

Good morning everyone!

I hope you're all enjoying this fabulous Easter break and scoffing lots of chocs, lol! Can you believe I don't have any Easter eggs and I'm not really that fussed about choclate full stop!!! Yes you did just read that sentence right, lol!!! Now if we're talking about a toasted hot cross bun with melted butter on that is a different matter...... YUM!!! I could eat a whole pack of them!! Not good for the diet though so I'll just have to dream about them for now ;o)

I sooooooo enjoyed making this card yesterday but I used up my very last sheets of Basic Grey's Wisteria paper, boo hoo. It's so pretty, probably my fave collection ever. In the pad the lilacs are hanging down from the top of the page, but I thought if I flipped it the lilacs would become lupins instead! I used another sweet Tilda from the latest collection and gently coloured her with Polys before adding lots of Stickles.

The foliage is made using DooHickey and Creatables dies and I added some grass with an old faithful QuicKutz die. And where would I be without the gorgeous DooHickey fence die which has been used over and over!! The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on and the lilac roses were a gift.

Here are the challenges I'm entering today:

CES Challenge - Spring Colours/Image

CRAFT - Flowers

Tip Top Tuesday - Open

Stamptacular Sunday - Pile It On (5 types of die cuts, punchies)

Paper Sundaes - (at least two of) Sparkle, Pearls, Die Cuts, Yellow

Cupcake Inspirations - Picture of Cake (took inspiration from the colour combo)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week to come ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
