Springing into Spring

Hi everybody

I am slightly behind with my blogging today,  I have a mammoth task on sorting out my craft room for some new furniture.  I'm sure that everybody knows what that means - trying to convince yourself you didn't know you had so much!  Hee hee ...

We are continuing our Spring celebration at  Make My Monday,  and this week Jacqueline really challenged the team - we want to see a Spring Fold Card.  If you are not sure how to nmake one, there is a tutorial by Jacqueline here which is very easy to follow.  Please pop along to the challenge and have some fun with this slightly different shape of card.

I have used a very pretty Pansy image from Fred She Said for this.  The base paper is from a FabScraps pad, and I have added a pansy border along the bottom edge.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craftroom - Spring Bouquet
Sparkles Forum - Mothers Day or Spring

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,
