Spring Delights

Good morning its a beautiful sunny day here today hope it stays that way lots of washing to get out on the line! Today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme this week is Spring Delights. Here is my card:

I have used Keeper of My Enchanted Forest which is available here she has been coloured with my Copics. The papers are First Edition Spring Feast.  I have used Spellbinders Grand Labels One and  Grand Decorative Labels One for the card shape and matting.  The image has been die cut out using Dienamics Pierced Rectangle Stax.  Other dies used are Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly Small 2, Dienamics Grass and Pierced Circle Stax, Lil Inker Small bow and various flower punches.  I stamped around the edge of the image with a Penny Black stamp in Victorian Velvet DI which I had seen Sue do and thought how pretty it was - thank you for the inspiration Sue. Here is another view:

As usual there is a terrific prize for one lucky winner:

Hop over to the challenge at The Paper Shelter for some more inspiration from the DT.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Mother's Day/For the Ladies
Fitztown - Dies and Punches
Kaboodle Doodle - Dreaming of Spring
My Craft Spot - Anything Goes

Well I went to the hairdressers yesterday and had all my hair chopped off! I do get bored with hairstyles and after a few years like to have a new style.  I loved Meryl Streep's hair in Devil Wears Prada so wanted a style like that, my fringe wasn't long enough but we are growing it.  I keep getting a shock when I catch sight of myself in a mirror!

Thank you so much for visiting today I really appreciate it and love to read your comments, thank you for taking the time to write them. I will be back tomorrow, take care xx

Another super card, love the colours and design
I have had my hair short (like in my picture) for quite a while, that's the way I cope with it best.
Look forward to seeing your new style
