Happy Spring!!

Hi there, Spring is definitely on the way, we've had some beautiful sunny days and it really does seem to be getting warmer at last :-) After the long winter we've had its great to see the blossom starting to appear on the trees and the spring flowers popping up in the garden.
Todays card features a gorgeous new image 'Oh Happy Spring' from Michelle Perkett, isn't this little bunny the cutest?? You can find him in Michelle's Etsy store here.

The little bunny is coloured with promarkers and I distressed the edges with pink and grey distress inks. The bp is from the Artylicious cd 'Decadent Brocade', its from the neutrals section but i've distressed with some pink ink to blend it in. The image and bp are both matted and layered on pearl grey and pastel pink card. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the gems and charm are from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
2 sisters: Furry friends
Bling it on: Anything goes + a charm
Do you stack up: Add a bow
Mamie Doodles: Celebrate spring
Some odd girl: think Spring
Woodware USA: Spring is coming

You still have time to enter this weeks challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studio, Shelley and her team have a fab St Patty's Day challenge lined up for you! If you don't have any of Michelle's lovely images you can grab a freebie from her groups on PCP, SNR or CDAC and join in the fun to be in with a chance of winning one of Michelle's gorgeous images.
Thanks for calling by today. I'm sorry if I haven't visited your blog lately, things are a bit hectic here with work and also my dear FIL is in hospital at the minute. Hopefully things will settle down soon and I'll have a bit more time for my lovely blogland buddies :-)
