Hi, and welcome!
There are lots of very pretty crocuses along the borders, in our lane.....creamy yellows, bright yellows, purples, and white....they look so gorgeous, gathered in large, and small, groups, and serve to remind us that Spring is not too far away.
I know I wax lyrical about the white, fluffy stuff, and nothing will ever change my love of pristine snow......but there is something about those hardy little crocus flowers that warms my heart....and I do actually love Spring, even though she can be a fickle season, here in North West England.
I think most Britons have a love of Spring.......the lighter, less chilly, days.......the little splashes of colour from the spring flowers......the bursting forth of the forsythia bushes.......the new-born lambs in the fields........."Oh, to be in England, now that Spring is here!"....okay, I changed "April" to "Spring".....but you get my drift.....that was by the poet, Robert Browning, by the way...........
and what comes around, every Spring, (here in the UK, anyway)?
I am so very blessed to still have my Mam with me. She's had a couple of health scares, recently, but has bounced back, hale and hearty, and with her own brand of joie de vivre......and I love her for it!
Today's card is for my Mam........
The card base is cream, and the papers are from K&Co......I distressed the edges, and used a Martha Stewart border punch, with a scrap of my third paper, and lay a length of pretty pink and cream trimming across it.........
Isn't she cute? She's from Mamidoodles....did you know they are closing, soon? Such a shame.
I coloured her with my usual Promarkers.
The sentiment is from a Hot off the Press paper pad, and I cut with a Nestie, and inked the edges.......
The pink diecut is a Marianne's Creatable, and I stuck a pretty flower, and a matching blue gem on top.......the flower was from a headband that was bought for £1 at Primark.....still got loads of the flowers left...bargain!
A closer look at that trim....came on a roll that I got at the local market.......
I've just re-discovered another market, in a town about 15 miles away.......since I was last there, they now have 3 fabric stalls, and 2 craft stalls...woohoo! I went last Saturday, but will be making another trip, tomorrow.....might share what I buy, if you are interested, haaa!
