Spring has Sprung - and a freebie!

Hi again folks!

At last the spring has finally come properly. Yes we had the daffodils and primroses have gone now, but in my mind spring is properly here when the Apple Blossom blooms. At last my trees are in flower, and this inspired me to create a new image - Apple Blossom. This is now available for purchase in my shop, Delicious Doodles.

Image my delight, when last evening I popped onto blogland and saw that Tinker & Co are back in action. Defo one of my fav digi-kit companies - you may have guessed. . . AND they are back with a GORGEOUS FREEBIE!! So I grabbed mine swiftish and set to work creating a card with the papers - which just happened to match with my new image - perfect!

I have teamed these up with a sketch from Sketch Saturday. Not played here before, so I hope it is up to scratch! Just noticed though that I forgot to put a sentiment under the image. I'll put one on later when I figure who to send it to. Hope that's OK. . .

I used the paper to create the punched flowers too, and I've inked all my edges with green and pink daubers. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the panel at the bottom, which I rubbed ink over to highlight the edge. I have added some pearly centres to the flowers, and also at the bottom for a bit more bling. This fits prefectly into the challenge at Crafty Catz this week 'Petals and Pearls'.

Right, off to do some gardening now then. Blooming weeds are taking over!! Bye for now. . .Oh, and don't forget to pick up your FREEBIE and leave some love!

Thank you so much for all your good wishes and your fantastic card. I don't have a lot of oomph at the minute but at least I can still appreciate beautiful cards.
Special Hugs,
