Spring is here!

Morning and welcome to my little post today! We have a new challenge up for you over at the Paper Shelter today and our theme is "Spring is here". So this week something with spring feelings to it. Like soft pastel colours, Easter images, flower images. You know that light feeling you get when spring arrives, well many get it but I don't as for me it's the starting point of the thunder season. I even called the doctor a few weeks back, and they sounded a bit well confused and said that thunder season had not started yet, and then they thought I just wanted to get help well a head. The day after the thunder struck about everwhere in the South part of Sweden. Considering that, I was actually late booking my appointment with the Doc. I still have a week before I get to see her about this. I do hope she has some brilliant idea to help me out with this. I'll do anything except watch and listen to the thunder. Chills runing throw my back just thinking about it...

Ok, you might say: Hey didn't you show that card for your last TPS challenge? Well, not really but almost. I got this card started and wanted to replace the first one with this, but I got sick and didn't find the time to finish it. But here it is! I do love these cute rabbits and for some strange reason I love making Easter cards. Having a hard time understanding that since we do nothing during this celebration. Well. this time we will spend a day at the football / soccer field as Willy has his first out door tournament of the year on Sunday. Hope the weather will be nice and sunny.

So the image once again is called Little Easter Bunnies and they are coloured up with my Letraset Markers. This time as well I have used the First Edition pad called Spring Drop. Nice and a good spring feeling to it. This is actually the left overs from the other card. LoL A little less in the cut up collection to use later on = never. No sentiment on this card and some spring flowers instead. The daffodils came from a blogging friend of mine, Annelie. Check out her stunning work here. An old ribbon, probably bought on some sale somewhere on line gave a little balance to the card. Also some sweet lovely yellow pearls has been put to use here. To finish off you always need some butterflies. I think this is my forth card in a row with these little creatures on. Oh well, you can never have too many butterflies around.

A stunning card. hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx Have a fabulous Easter with the boys.xxxx
