A little bit of Spring!

Chris is a little down at the moment - I think he was expecting a miracle with the visit to the orthopod yesterday, unfortunately he now has to wait 2-3 weeks for some injection of a nerve blocker into the spine. If you have any ideas what a very physical, immobile man can do to alleviate the boredom of four walls please share! I suggested crafting, cross stitch, embroidery, knitting, crochet... lead and balloon spring to mind!

I forgot to tell you all I have joined Pinterest! So I now have something else to be addicted to! Can I please book an extra couple of hours to be added to my days?

I decided I needed something springlike to celebrate the lovely weather yesterday and the fact that winter really can't last forever! I created this card.

The daffodils are made by stamping the image from Secret Garden with Daffodil Delight on Daffodil Delight card stock and cut out using the corresponding Framelits, I then punched the middles using the Boho Blossom Punch and sponged the edges and inked the middles which are then attached using dimensionals.

The stems are from Secret Garden too and stamped in Garden Green.

Finally the flower pot is simply a punched Large oval, embossed with the Chevron Embossing Folder.

I have entered this in the Dynamic Duos challenge #42 this week, see here

Why not create a little spring yourself?
