Good morning everyone,

It looks like spring has finally arrived here in Yorkshire!  At last!

I've dug out yet another favourite Forever Friends stamp and tried to avoid using my usual pinks/lilacs/blues for a change!



 Items used:

Stamp - Forever Friends, sentiment tags - LOTV
Coloured with ProMarkers
Dies - Memory Box and Spellbinders
Embossing folder - Crafts-Too
DP, Stickles, twine, button and pearls from my stash



I would like to enter the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Spring is in the air
Creative Inspirations - Pretty Projects
Passion for ProMarkers - Cute Critters
Ribbon Girl Challenge - Anything Goes/Spring
Penny Black & More - Feature a creature
Stamping Sensations - Flower power
Live & Love Crafts - Signs of Spring
As You Like It - Favourite Embossing & Why - (I used to like heat embossing but my ink always dried out so now prefer to use embossing folders, they give reliable results every time)

Thanks for stopping by today and any comments you leave are really appreciated.
Have a good week.
