Spring Is InThe Air

Morning everyone and happy Tuesday to you all.

It's Guest Designer time for me again over at Oldie But A Goodie and this week 'Spring Is In The Air' I hope you all have a chance to check out their challenges, you'll soon be dusting off your favourite forgotten stamps and joining in the fun. Be sure to check out their fabulous DT's blogs for some brilliant idea's.

Once again I have used a stamp (Tilda as a Bunny from Magnolia) that I have never used before, she has sat uninked for almost a year now!  You can't see it on this picture but I cut Tilda out and she is mounted on a tiny spring and she wobbles when you touch her! Thought I'd take the 'spring' literally!!
Magnolia Stamp Lovers  have a 'Pastels' theme this week, if you haven't been over there for a while you should check out the new blog makeover it's looking really FAB. This is aslo my 3rd and final entry into the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge with the 'Squares' theme.

The beautiful daffodils are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the satin ribbon from the Ribbon Girl, I used my Nesties and a Martha Stewart border punch everything else is from my stash.

Thanks for visiting, remember, please leave a trace so I can visit you

I have come back to return the compliment Laura and become a Follower. I'm the same as you in that I spend ages blog hopping instead of crafting and it takes me forever to make just one card lol
Hope to see you again soon xox
PS. I like your font - can I ask how you changed it ?

Laurie this is just amazing. That little bunny Tilda is so darn cute & although we got 6 inches of snow last night your card has brought a little sunshine my way. It's so beautifully colored & love the way she's sitting on the ribbon.
Hugs, Janie
