Morning everyone, 1st of March and Spring is coming our way, sooner rather than later I hope. After all the snow really looking forward to some finer days and the countryside bursting into colour and some lovely sunshine, much needed, fed up with all these gloomy days! Its also the start of a new challenge over on By The Cute & Girly and we want to see you join us again for our challenge. This month I'm hosting and it's all about SPRINGTIME I have made a basket for my grandchildren Naomi and Robert to give to their Mum on Mother's Day. Nothing like being prepared well in advance is their, gosh Mum was here today, wonder if she noticed it! Will have to put it away and not forget where!!
Used my all time favourite Sugar Nellie stamp 'daisy' and coloured with Promarkers. A first and wasn't as bad an experience as I thought it was going to be! Infact was quite pleased with my first attempt.
Used Docraft papers, lovely and Spring like and made all the flowers and added a few punched butterflies . Added Glamour dust, pearls, gems and ribbon to finish.
The Daisy like flowers are made using a punch then snipped each petal, layered and fluffed them up.
Filled basket with shredded yellow tissue paper and added this little Mother's Day bear. Would of liked the hat to of been blue and yellow but not to be, love the floppy sunhat style though, least the bear is colour co ordinated! Going to add some little Easter eggs but forgot to buy them for the piccy!

p.s. Managed to get mouse moving eventually. Button to the left of the start button must of been knocked on on start up, never knew what that was for, do now! Gosh a bit of luck finding it. Always seems to be a crisis when it won't play ball, couldn't say that for the hoover!! Couldn't get on with hubbys work laptop and thought this post was not going to happen! Alls well that ends well as they say!
bye for now
