Washing on the Line!

It did not stay out there long but it was nice to be able to hang things out there for a little while.   Spring is here and the sun will show it's face again soon.    Then in another 4/5 months we will probably be complaining that it is to hot.

With the season in mind crafters are turning to spring themed projects and I am no exception.  Don't need much excuse I happen to love the colour green.

Green acetate makes the card while a very old Do Crafts stamp was used for the image.  Carefully coloured the image with ProMarkers in yellow, blue and green.   Blue Stickles dotted in the daffodil centre's.   An old die cut the shape for an exact square and there is an identical one attached to the inside for a message.  I know I said I was not going to make cards but the idea for this one appealed to me.


Here are some of those spring and green themed challenges.

More Mixed Media - I knew there was another specific challenge I had in mind for this.   Their theme is Green!

Cards in Envy - A fortnightly card making challenge and their theme this time is "Green Things".

Crazy for CAS - This is a Dutch based monthly challenge and new to me, but I like their prompt "Spring" and thought I''d share this with them.

The Paper Players - I like these girls their rules are simple, loud and clear no nonsense here.  Hopefully they have been obeyed by my entry.  Theme Spring has Sprung.

Now I need a little gift box and have a couple of boxes that need altering so should be able to sort that out quite easily, craft room I'm coming....
