Hello Spring :-)

Hi all :-) the weather is horrid here at the mo’, gale force winds, rain, cold,,, perfect weather to stay in and craft and not feel guilty that the windows need cleaning ! :-)

I just received this fabulous parcel from Simon Says Stamp,,, HAPPY MAIL !! :-)
Isn't it lovely when you have a knock at the door and you just KNOW it is the Postie with the parcel of goodies you ordered !!! :-)

Lots of goodies in there to play with ! :-) What to use first ??? Oooh,,, decisions decisions ,,,,

err ,,, think it will have to be those gorgeous Memory Box Dancing Tulips ! :-)


I love the Hero Arts Shadow inks and used the Bubble Gum on this,, but thought it was a little  bit too vivid so toned it down with a snow cap dabber,, I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post


Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
