Are you sure Summer is coming

I was over visiting my parents today and my mum happened to remind me that British Summer Time officially begins next weekend. Well I looked out of the window at the snow, and took a moment to remember that my hands had been about to drop off from the cold only five minutes earlier, and I just had to laugh! What on earth is going on with our weather at the moment...and will there ever be any end to it????

Still - at least there are lots of lovely Spring challenges out there to make us think of the lovely season to come...if it ever gets here!!

Here's a very simple little card that I have made using one of the cutie pie images from LOTV.......this is what we should be doing right now - not shovelling snow with our wellie boots on!

As you can see I have gone for a lilac and lemon combination which I think is nice and fresh and I have coloured this little lady in with my much adored Pro Markers.

I have gone for my 'cheats' bow, involving a bit of cutting, a bit of folding and some super sticky tape...and that's about it really.

Here are a few challenges that I would like to enter with this card:

Make it Monday (Link to follow)
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Easter / Spring
Stamp n Doodle - Anything Goes
Paper Shelter - Let it be Spring
Lili's Little Fairies - Spring Colours
ABC Challenge - Anything Goes

Finally, I am delighted to have had some new followers join me over the weekend. Thank you for coming to join me, and I look forward to seeing you around.
