Spring is on it's way

Yes this is a sure sign that spring can't be far away,
even if winter is dumping all it's left over frost, snow,
rain and cold winds on us at the moment.
The Hyacinths in the garden are hopeless these in the pot spent
2 months in a paper bag in the fridge before they were planted.
So now I know I have to dig them up each year and give them
the cold treatment.

Onto my card.
I was a little worried about mixing Gold, Silver, White and Cream together
which is the challenge over at 52 CCT this week.
However it seems to have worked.
The card base is a very pale cream although it looks white in the photo.

The lovely cream embossed paper I found when looking for my gold and silver 
foil card so that is some more of my stash used up.
The sentiment has been embossed with silver prisma powder
and I have sponged around the die with 
Galexy Gold Brilliance.
I have used Spellbinders Labels 1 and Decorative labels 1.

Am entering this in:


  1. Hi Margaret
    Love the simple elegance of your card and your beautiful hyacinths.
    Got a bit confused by Spring, frosts and snow until I remembered your from Down Under lol!
    Hope it warms up for you soon.
    Best wishes.
