Ladybug Crafts Challenge – Spring is Here!

Hello, how are you keeping?

As it is the first of the month it means that a brand new challenge begins today at Ladybug Crafts and our theme for April is Spring is Here! Is it? Where?

Very cheekily I am showing a card I sent as a thank you to Sammy Jean when I won her AWESOME candy a while back and James - Daisy, available here, was a part of that amazing haul! I know, how lucky am I!!

This could possibly be the greenest card I have ever made!

Ingredients:
Stamps: LOTV ‘James - Daisy
Dies/Punches:  Martha Stewart Punch around the Page – Tonic daisy punch – Memory Box ‘Puffy Clouds’ – Sizzix ‘Fancy Labels’ Framelets - Spellbinders Scalloped Circles – Tattered Lace ‘Mini Blooms’
Paper/Card: American Crafts – Neenah Solar White
Colouring/Ink: Memento ‘Black Tuxedo’ – Spectrum Noir pencils – blending spirit
Others: Sentiment LOTV - Ribbon and gems from stash
Hopeless Hand drawings: None! Phew!


Have a wander over to the Ladybug Crafts blog here and look at the gorgeous creations made by my teammates and then play along!

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
