British Summertime Begins - yippee!!

Well I hope you all remembered to change your clocks this morning and were up bright and early to enjoy another day of sunshine and lighter evenings!!

I'm all shopped out now after my day at the NEC, got all sorts of goodies (some I probably will only use once lol!!).  I managed to get my hands on some of the new Lili of the Valley stamps which aren't being released til later in the week.  I was hoping to get some Molly Blooms but they didn't have a stall so I was a bit disappointed with that as I now have an embargo on any more craft products after yesterday!!  I'm going to have a good old play today as everything is still in my shopping bag because my DH picked me up from the train station and we went straight out for a meal!  I'm sure when I unpack I will discover things that I forgot I bought!!

Anyway here is today's card which is another sweet digital image from Wee Stamps:


He certainly looks surprised and he's on one of my favourite spring flowers - Lily of the Valley they smell so pretty and are so dainty.  I used to have some in my garden but they have all disappeared now I should get some more I suppose.  I have used First Edition papers "Birdsong" and coloured the image with Prisma Pencils.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and I have cut and matted the image and sentiment with Spellbinders.  The flower is a Spellbinders die, Birdhouse and Bird a Marianne die, Border punch a EK Success, big butterfly is Martha Stewart and the smaller ones are a Woodware punch.  The gem and spacer are from my stash. I would like to enter the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Spring Blossoms
Sentimental Sundaes - Easter or Spring
Cardmadfairy Digi Days - Add a Sentiment
Phindy's Friday - Animal Planet
Raise the Bar - In the Garden
Card Crafter's Circle - Tic Tac Toe (Flowers, Digi, Die Cuts)

Well that's it for me today, I always find the first day of British Summertime whizzes by with loosing the hour and I've got loads to do (play)!  Have a great day and take care xx
