Spring has sprung!

Hello bloggers, what lovely spring weather we are having at the moment (a bit windy but the sun is shining!) I was off work yesterday and took my challenge inspiration from the gorgeous daffodils in my garden. They are one of my favourite flowers and I love it when the sun shines on them!

I've not used this stamp for ages - in fact I knew it was the one I wanted to use for these challenges but I thought I'd lost it and it took me forever to find it (buried in my box of ribbons), the papers are from the new Papermania capsule collection (as are the buttons) and the stamp was a magazine freebie.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:

Allsorts: #97 blooming blossoms

Crazy4Challenges: #81 sketch

Stamp Scrap & Doodle: glitz

Corrosive Challenge: #110 pastel colours

The Crafty Pad: #115 flowers

Stamptacular Sunday: #105 buttons, bling & bloom

Kaboodles Doodles: #61 let's get girly

Pollycraft Monday: #87 old / neglected stamp

Back to work today - off on Sunday!

Hugs, Hayley xx

  2. A lovely card Hayley.

    It's lovely to come across as old stamp and use it again, amazing how often when you do you look at it in a totally diffent light.

    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation and joining in my Bloomin’ Blossoms theme at Allsorts this week.
