Celebrate spring!

Hi guys,
Isn't it gorgeous! had a walk this morning, positively summerish lol the birds are singing, and a gorgeous Butterfly was in the Garden, luckily I saw it as Tilly had her nose on top of it sniffing, but when I told her to leave, she did bless her and it flew away quite happily, the butterfly that is not Tilly lol,

Our challenge this time at Colour create is by our lovely Janiel and is for pastel colours and the optional extra is 
our sponsor is Crafts and me

well I just had to stamp up my new stamps from Magnolia didn't I!
they are so gorgeous!!
I've masked the barrow of tulips with this gorgeous Tilda and coloured them with Distress Inks,the flowers are WOC and I've given them the glitter treatment lol, 
all my paper edges are machine sewn,

All that scraps Magnolia ~ Spring is in the air
CLP ~ Sketch
Stempeltraume ~ Spring colour,
Whoopsi Daisy ~ Easter,
Claudia and co ~ colours, butter, rose, pale green, lavender,
Scrap creations ~ spring has sprung
Crafty creations ~ In stitches

Over at Paper Play the challenge is distressing and is set by me!
I hope you like the challenge and don't just want to throw things at me lol,
I've used a Fuzzy Moon image, isn't it cute,  again it's been done with Distress Inks, the background is pale pink but you can hardly make that out lol,
The sentiment is one of Lynne's from here, these are great as you can make them to your own size,
I've used a Doo Hickey die cut to make the half frame for my image and to add interest on the main card, my paper edges and my image edge are all distressed with my distress tool some of my papers are sewn too,


Crafts and me ~ Anything goes

hope you having lovely weather too,
see you soon, love and hugs Liz xx
