Getting Ready For Spring - Bring It on!

Not long now it will be officially Spring, well a little over a month to go but it is getting closer honest guv! By the time it is Spring I will be wishing for Summer. Got to remember to stay in the moment.

Well I do have a sort of Spring make to show you, it is my card for Creative Expressions using the lovely Eco Green Crafts Garden Chic stamp set

I've used the large Spring stamp with some of the Cosmic Shimmer White embossing powder and coloured with the Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Stains. The background is one of my collage backgrounds.

I like the burst of colour on an otherwise quite neutral card and I love the split between the writing and flowers on this lovely stamp from the Eco Green Crafts Garden Chic stamp set. It was one of those makes where I wasn't sure at all what it was going to look like when I finished it just grew organically!


Well that is me, I shall leave you to your, hopefully, lovely Sunday, but before I go the lovely folks over at Deze  Is Ook Leuk! (This Is Fun!) have been kind enough to link up to my recent Rustiness
