Spring flowers

Hello lovely people,

This is my second post today so if you are looking for my guest DT card for A Little Bit Crafty then please scroll down :-)

It certainly feels to me like Spring is well and truly here with all this lovely sunshine and everything growing away in my garden, so now I have to split my time between gardening and crafting.  What about the housework?  Hmm, best not go there!

Anyhoo,  we have a new challenge for you at All Dressed Up and our theme is...


I bet you never would have guessed that with all my waffle about Spring at the start of this post ;-)
I've gone for pretty spring shades and flowers... oooh yes, those flowers are from my newly acquired (and quite enormous!) stash of WOC flowers.  I got all sorts of types, sizes and colours and am having lots of fun using them :-D

Of course, I will just have to share a closer look at this little cutie.  There is a touch of Stickles too but in very small dots so it's mostly invisible in the photos!

Challenges I am entering;
1. Divas by Design (Spring/Easter)
2.  As You Like It (fave stitching - real or faux... no contest for me, it has to be real for the texture and the way it makes my layers look 'finished'!)
3.  A Creative Romance (Spring/Easter)
4.  Sweet Stampin' (flowers)
5.  A Gem of a Challenge (Spring is in the air)
