Here comes spring...........

Posted by Picasa
Not for us in the south at the moment it feels just like winter hopefully it
will improve as my sister is coming on a visit and she is from NSW
where they have had a very wet summer so it would be good to give her a little taste of sun.

It was my birthday today and what a wonderful surprise I had when we went out to lunch
who should be there but my one and only grand daughter who we haven't seen for months.
She lives on the big Island

Well onto todays card I have tried to give you a card full of sunshine with a lovely clear blue sky.
some daisies I made yonks ago and that lovely blue ribbon that has been waiting to be used.
The faux stitching was done with a tombow and the punch is an EK success.
This is another of my favorite Penny Black stamps and you can  almost see the paw
itching to take a swipe at one of those birds.

Am entering this in:
Penny Black @ Allsorts -  Springtime
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Case -  I have used the blue and a cat stamp
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Make it Monday - Anything goes linky party

Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.

I can't believe there are more new followers to welcome, hope you enjoy.

  13. hi margaret, this is a very pretty spring card, but it's linking up to the current penny black and more challenge instead of your intended card, in case you want to fix it.
