Swing Into Spring!

Hello again my lovely friends, 3 posts in just 2 days - don't get too used to this I'm sure it won't last LOL
My wedding invitation production line is well and truly under way so I thought I would treat myself to a bit of 'me' production!! I didn't get time to enter several of my favourite challenges last week so I'm determined to do better this week.
Today I want to share with you another LOTV stamp made for their challenge of 'Say It With Flowers' it's turned out a bit brighter than I hoped it would but I think I can live with it! Papertake Weekly want us all to go 'Lemon Zingy' well mine is a little more 'Egg Yolk Dingy' but I'm still entering!
 Cute Card Thursday are celebrating their 3rd birthday this week with an additional prize up for grabs if you add the 3 to their 'Happy Birthday' theme. The sketch was provided by the lovely Jenny over at Pink Gem
Ladybugs Crafts Ink want to see 'Spring Colours' and I've gone for blue skies and yellow sunshine with of course spring daisies! The middle daisy came from WOC and the 2 smaller ones made from die cuts and brads.

Over at Sir Stampalot 'Spring Is In the Air' and they would like to see lots of Green, Yellow and or Blossom Pink on our cards this month. Browsing through challenge blogs the other day I came across a photo inspiration challenge that this would be perfect for, but me being me, I can't remember what it was and can't find it anywhere! Feel free to nudge me if you know please.
I used blue daisy paper from a sizzix sizzlet pad, yellow card and punched some flowers for a self colour pattern, oval nesties, a rub on sentiment and ribbon from my stash oh and a MS border punch.

Thank you all for visiting I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, think of me I'll be working!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x
