Hi, and welcome!

Our weather is certainly weird, right now!  We are usually still shivering in our winter woollies. and my patchwork quilts are folded on the bottom of  our bed, but today has been more like May than the last day of February.....weird, indeed!
Still, as I said yesterday, the spring flowers are making an appearance, and the local farmer is preparing for his new lambs, so the seasons are on the turn...........
Which brings me to today's creation...haha!.......and this is made for a lovely challenge over at 
Sara has a lovely free digi stamp that you can use for her challenge, so why not click on the above link...after you've finished reading the rest of my guff, of course!........and join in the challenge....great prize up for grabs, too!

Oh, this was fun to make!  Both images are from Sara....cute, eh?
The papers are from my scrap pile, inked with a soft yellow chalk, and layered with the pretty K&Co ribbon......
I coloured with PMs, and fussy-cut the sweet girlie on the swing......I used a Making Memories die to cut a tab shape, and attached to the top of the swing ropes...all up on pop dots......

I used the Marianne's lamp post die for the swing support.........

And this is the freebie that Sara has provided.......couldn't resist it...ha!
Again, coloured with PMs, and a dinky flutterby to embellish....done!

Go get the freebie, and join the challenge....and don't forget to take a look in the store, too....lots of cutie must-haves in there!
