Hello blog friends,  happy Friday, also Happy St Patricks Day

of the house says on thing whilst the front says another.

Whilst the weather is making up its mind, I will get on with my post lol.

There is a new challenge over at Crafty Catz this week our challenge is

Use lots of Green

will get to choose two images from Leann's World 101.

drew in the background copse of trees

Add a little spring .....

Good morning friends, I hope that life has been kind and that you

this past week and that you are feeling good and up for

another fun challenge over at Crafty Catz Challenge

this weeks anything goes with a twist is Spring , so get your mojo 

on the flow and join us. it doesn't  have to be Spring in the conventional

way, you could add a wobbler to your card you could use a 

motor bike or mountain bike they have springs on the front forks.

 I didn't really do conventional spring as coloured the Chrysanthemum  

with Zig watercolour pens and it came out a little brighter then

i would have liked, although my cousin loved it I made especially

for her and tried to do something different with the frame.

The Chrysanthemum Large Slimline flower stamp and die are from Pink Fresh Studio 

and the glitter card is from my stash its the no shed glitter card.

I have entered this into the following fun challenges

Stamping Sensations Challenge: # March Anything Stamped with the Option Wings / Tails

The Corrosive Challenge: # 3Anything Goes

Happy Little Stampers Challenge :  # Anything Goes with dies

Have a wonderful weekend my friends 

and thank you so much for stopping by it means a lot 

Take care but have fun in everything you do

Much Love
