A little bit of Spring

I am in desperate need of sunshine – I am sure I suffer from SAD.  Do those lamps work??  Well whether they do or not this card sure brightened my day.  I am not a yellow fan (unless it’s teamed with pink) but lately I seem to be using it quite a bit.  And check me out!!  I am sticking to my promise to myself to use up my older papers – this K & Co pad that I have used is one of the very first pads I bought.  Mind you I still have some to stroke lol.

I have used my favourite little heffalump – Ellie from Stamposaurus.  This little cutie is just sooo sweet.  I dug out some spring flowers – from Wild Orchid Crafts, isn’t that daffodil fab!  And the delish green twill ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl – totally droolworthy.  Talking about The Ribbon Girl, I know an awful lot of you didn’t manage to snap up the Seam Binding before it all sold out ……. well keep an eye on my blog because more is on order and as soon as it arrives I will let you know.  I knew it would be popular, I didn’t think it (and the emergency supplies) would sell out in less than a day!  It really is fab though, and cheap as chips too.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and will be available from Tuesday when the new stamps go live on the website.    I have had a lot of emails about the calendar sentiment I used on the Hanglar card I posted yesterday.  It’s also from Lili of the Valley.  You get 2 large and 4 small stamps for the stonking price of £4!!!

I will be back later with some more delish candy …… new release stamps from Lili of the Valley and a few other bits and bobs including some more seam binding.  Right, now I am off to do housework … boo!

Enjoy your weekend

  3. Hi Bev,

    what a great card! Like the colors and the whole design! I can't see snow or winter, too. So it's great to see such a summer-card :)

  21. Hi Bev
    WOW what a lovely bright card,(just what we need on such a dark dreary day). Your card reminded me that I have some of that paper, (and as my new year resolution is to use up my mountain of stashed paper/card) I am going to TRY & find where I have stashed it rotfl.

  26. Hi Bev,
    Have I said Hello yet this year? If not, just wanted to be sure & wish you a happy & prosperous New Year! I'm impressed you are using up your old papers. I'm trying desparately to show some self restraint & not buy any more! This gorgeous card is a breath of fresh air on a dull January day. I love it! Hope you're keeping well.
    Big Hugs,

  39. I love the cute Ellie stamp.
    You are a good girl using some of your old papers! It always feel good to use something that has been in the stack for ages. And when you have done so for some cards it feels sooo good to buy something new! :-)

    Have a nice week-end.

  47. Gorgeous card and sweet elephant!

    I love the colours - they are cheery and do remind me of Spring. It's worst time of the year for me, when you have taken all xmas decorations down and it's SO dull and miserable outside. Never mind - Spring is just around the corner!
