Thinking Of Spring.

Hello Everyone!

I hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas time.

Ours actually included a tiny amount of sunshine, which is a Christmas miracle right there!

I sat and created this card yesterday, when I found myself with a little chill time. Smiles.

This year has been one of the windiest, wettest on record, and (apart from a couple of hours Christmas day) there hasn’t been much change since August.

So of course my card had to have a spring feel to it, now that all of my Christmas makes are done.  (For now at least.)

This beautiful image is called Fairy Lily, and she is from the fabulous Art By Miran.

Isn’t she just so beautiful?

To bring Fairy Lily to life, I used my Copics in these shades:-

All of my gorgeous embellishments are from Live & Love Crafts.

Flower

This fabulous blue flower was part of a whole delicious ribbon strip. I cut it off, and then added the white stamen to the centre.  (Also from Live & Love Crafts.)

Flowers

I also used the left over blue mesh from cutting the blue flower, to sit behind my other floral decorations.

I used the last of my string pearls (sob sob!) and some more white stamen behind my hand tied bow.

My papers are from my Floral Pavillion Paper Pad.

And the purple layer card is my Core-Dinations Roy G Biv Card Book.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

I hope that I have managed to make you feel more spring like too (if you needed it! Smiles.)

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!

My beautiful design paper is Maja Designs – Summer Crush.

Those lovely sequins are from my Christmas Swap Partner Sharon. Smiles.

The rose ribbon trim is very old now and I forget where I got it from.

In the small banner printed onto the design paper, I have gently pencilled in “With Love.”

The Happy Birthday sentiment is my own, computer generated one.
