Spring has Sprung!

Morning peeps and a very happy Spring to you all.  We have been so, so lucky this week with this glorious weather, shame I was at work, but what a difference it does make to your day.  But as always, all good things must come to an end as it is going to turn next week, we are expecting snow this coming Monday/Tuesday!! Back to normal for us here then - Jumpers and Wellies ...lol...

Sorry I have blogged as of late due to a mixture of computer hiccups and we, at the Charity have been busy making some gorgeous wedding invites for a lovely couple's big day in June. 

 I have a few commissioned cards to do as well and I shall share them with your good selves as I do the and I should be getting creative again and start experimenting with some new toys I have acquired.  They have been shouting out from the corner of the room for months "Play with me!" 

This is one of the commissioned cards.  It has been years since I have done an Easter card, so I really had to get my thinking cap on.  I remenbered I had an old Sizzix Cross embossing folder somewhere so I hunted it out from the cupboard.  Other tools used was my Swiss Dots embossing folder, diecut swirls and Leaf Punch.  From stash was Card Candy, ribbon,  flowers and gemstones.  The challenges covered are:-
