Spring Delights

Good morning to you all! I have scheduled this post because I should be at the airport about to get on a plane for a week's holiday to Spain. Dave thought it would be a good idea to try and get a bit of sunshine for a week to cheer us up!  I had a fabulous time with my grandsons they are just so gorgeous and loved having them all here!

Today is the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme this week is "SPRING DELIGHTS"  we would love to see your creations with Spring as the theme!  Here is what I have done:

Isn't she just adorable? I loved colouring her in what a joy!

Items Used:

Image - The Paper Shelter "Spring Breeze"
Markers - Copics and Chalks
Paper - Centura Pearl and Papermill Pink Cardstock
Dies - Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One and Grand Decorative Circles, Memory Box Little Umbrella, Spellbinders Homespun for the Flowers and Leaves
Embellishments - Ribbon and seed pearls from stash, Stickles

The prize for the lucky winner is:

so if you use a Paper Shelter image and win you will get a $30 voucher for The Paper Shelter! You don't have to use a Paper Shelter image, with another image the winner will receive 3 images of your choice.  I would say to go over to the shop and have a look at the gorgeous images, there are always new ones being added and they are just fabulous - they come with a coloured option too if you are pushed for time or just don't like colouring!   Please pop over to the Challenge and see what the rest of the team have made!

Thanks for looking today! I won't be able to get round to see you all until I get back next week! Take care xx

Gorgeous card Susan. Love the pastel pink and blues you've used for this one and the little flower embellishments finish it off perfectly. Must get my pens out again. Glad you enjoyed your visitors and hope you have a lovely week relaxing in the sun and warmth.
