Springtime Snowdrops

Hiya folks!

Ugh, spring has left us! It's turning cold, the wind has picked up, it's grey and there is a threat of snow!! YUCK!

And here I was thinking Spring had sprung, all the wee flowers popping out, my seeds sprouting in their trays, birdies chirping. They'll be tucked up in their nests today for sure! Talking of wee flowers, my garden is brimming with lovely Snowdrops right now, and primroses, and iris flowers and crocus. So pretty - hope they don't get blown away!

I had a request the other day for a retirement card with my Snowdrops image on it, and this is what I made:

Personally I would have used green to go with the flowers, but my customer wanted blues, so that's what she's got! I made one similar to this not so long ago, so I just used the same stuff on the computer, but changed the colours, and added the sentiment, bow and charm as requested. Hope she likes it!

Now, there are a few 'Spring' challenges out there right now, so I am entering this card into these:

Creative Inspirations - In the Garden
Fab 'n' Funky - Spring
Delightful Challenges - Welcome Spring
Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring
S4TW - Springtime
The Pink Elephant - Springtime
Totally Papercrafts - Pearls and Lace

Your garden sounds so pretty hun mine is a mess I've lost a few of my large grass palms cus of the rotten winter, I love evergreens & I keep flowers to my tubs & baskets & the front garden which is getting done in spring. Its still too cold now lol ssshh thats my excuse lol.
