SPRING!!?!!...its a blog hop!

...is here... hopefully, ... fingers crossed, ... wind in the right direction (but not the wind bringing the ash cloud - enough said about that on here already! lol)

Spring is lovely - all the buds are coming up and out, and even the weeds are worth a photograph!


Aaaanyhoo - in honour of Springs arrival and to make it feel welcome and encourage it to stay Banana Frog has picked SPRING as its theme for this months Blog Hop (drum roll please)

So if you're here on your trip around the Lilypond or are a regular visitor : welcome!
Here is my 'spring' themed project:

These were created by making a really simple masterboard panel - a wave of stamped flowers (super dreamy stamp set) with spots (Shimelle's background set) stamped underneath, over-coloured with distress inks (green).. Simples as the tv meerkats would say.

The cards have been embellished with gems & pearls (gotta have some bling!), paper flowers (never seem to run out of these however much I use them.. lol), and stickles (love the stickles!).
Card,bottom right photo: I shaded the petals of the orange flower to add a bit more colour.

The stamps sets I've used to create these cards are:
Super Dreamy,  Simple Greetings and Backgrounds by Shimelle
