Spring Is In The Air

A bright spring card for a lovely sunny morning!

I love these words, they come from a fabulous stamp set from IndigoBlu called Nottingham Lace and they are stamped in Versafine and embossed with clear powder on a Spellbinders circle die highlighted with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.  The scallop circle is also Spellbinders.  The background embossing is done with a free embossing folder that came with a magazine.  The flower edge punch is Martha Stewart. Roses are Wild Orchid Crafts and the little corners on the top corners are made with Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers ATC and Corners Die.  I dotted Stardust Stickles on the roses for a bit of sparkle.  I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

IndigoBlu - More than Words
That's Crafty - Spring is in the Air
A Little Bit Crafty - Flower Power
Scrapology - Freebies (embossing folder)

All these challenges are fab fun and have wonderful Design teams and are definitely worth you popping over and having a look and maybe joining in too!

I have to apologise again for being very bad at my visits to everyone.  My hubby and I are both still struggling with our health which is making everything very difficult.  Thank goodness for crafting to keep me sane although I can't manage to do very much of it at the moment! It cheers me up loads when you come to visit though - thank you so much!  Have a lovely day, whatever you do.  Take care.  Christine xx
