Just for Fun - Spring

Still making your Christmas cards and decorations?   Getting a bit of Festivities overload?   Have a break from it all, let your Mojo run free in your stash and join us at Just for Fun with our Spring Challenge.  Yes this week we challenge you to make something that represents the second, and some would say the best, season of the year.

All those buds and early flowers, the blossom and fresh green's.   Bird song, nest building and first chicks.   New life exploding all over the place the sun is getting warmer and the days growing longer.   This week then look forward just a few short weeks to the coming light days.  Oh and the return of F1 but if its only on Sky sport well that's another post.

I've used more basic grey paper for the May page of my calendar book topped with two Tando Butterflies.   The chipboard has been stamped and heat embossed, the design was then filled in with Sakura glitter pens.   You can see it reasonably well on the white lined one but unfortunately it is not so clear on the other one.   In the flesh these butterflies glimmer and shimmer almost blindingly.

Spring at Just for Fun this week then.
