Spring colours

Good evening. I 've had a very busy and industrious day, cleaning, cooking, ironing, dog walking and finishing small granddaughter's Easter dress! Now I have time to play, if I can keep my eyes open!!!
I treated myself to some beautiful new Lavinia stamps and made this card with them. The Lavinia Stamps Challenge this month is 'Spring Colours' so I went for yellow and green (again!). The background is coloured using Pan Pastels, the leaves stamped with various shades of green distress inks, the fairies and mushroom houses with memento. A tiny touch of glitter around the houses and on the wings (sorry doesn't really show in the photo!) I love these stamps!
We took Mathilda for a few days stay in a converted barn on a Sussex farm....she had a fabulous time. So did we!

Here she is on the beach (the tongue does fit back in!)

 

In the car...
...and at the end of the day!
Thanks for visiting.

  2. Gorgeous card, love the colours and the lovely image, great colouring.
    Glad you have had a great day but don't like the I word, hate it, taking tips from my Daughters and don't iron certain items.
