Spring is here!! YAY!!!

Well hello!!

Hope all you Mother's have had, or are still having a fabby Mothers day!!
Sam's parents are coming over for tea at 6.30 so the beef is cooking (and has been for 5 hours mmmm!!) so it smells lovely and it gave me a few hours to ink up some of me new Lili of the Valley stamps...

They were at the NEC show a couple of weeks ago and well...let's just say I purchased a 'few' must have stamps lol...

It's funny as I saw these stamps in one of the many craft mags I read and I wasn't that struck on them... but after seeing some of the cards by Bev Rochester using them I fell in love so expect a lot if LOTV cards coming up lol.

The papers are MME - Stella Rose - Gertie papers and I got them for Crafty Emma's Store!!
As I did the Tim Holtz ticket and ladybug charm!!

I am entering this into:

Allsorts - Blooming blossom

The crafty pad - Flowers

Paper Sundaes - Spring blossoms

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day xx
