Sending hugs

 Good morning, another week of Lockdown is behind us, May has arrived  and the world outside my door is is looking beautiful, this week's rain on top of the preceding weeks' warm and sunny weather has made everything so lush and green- the gardens and woodlands nearby are bursting with blooms and blossom, the trees are that beautiful, fresh new- leaf green, it is a wonderful time of year here in the UK.
Today at Crafty Catz we have a real treat for you, not one but two fabulous sponsors both offering lovely digi stamps as prizes, so double the chance of winning! Nick is hosting this week and she's picked the theme of 'sending hugs' -I think we all could do with some of those just now!
   The sponsors are-


Here are the cards I made using images from both of the sponsors.

The first one is using Mother and Baby Bear from StarJamLines.

The second one using Forever Friends from Little Blue Button's Freebie Page
As you can see I've used exactly the same layout on both designs, just changing the colours, papers and sentiment stamps.

We hope you choose to play along with us at Crafty Catz this week, remember we are an  'Anything Goes Challenge', the theme is entirely optional.

Thanks for visiting

Two lovely cards, Chris. Love the papers you've used. I must admit it's been a nice change to have some refreshing rain, even when we were out on our daily walk today. xx
