Is It Spring Yet?

Hello All,

I have been AWOL the past few days as I have been away for a long weekend visiting the in-law's. I was able to visit craft world in Glasgow....and picked up quite a few goodies!! I feel I must restrain myself...I think I plan on making at least 100 cards before I buy anything else!!

This is a long lost stamp...It was great over the hols I had a good root in all my boxes of stamps and rediscovered some long lost stamps...this in one from the "Lindy's stamp gang"......isn't he just so so cute!!....I have coloured with copics, the paper is "DCWV" that was in the scrap pile...and I decided to keep this card quite simple.

This is my entry for:

OSAAT - Anything Goes
Challenge Up Your Life - Clean and Simple
Paper Cutz - Your Choice
Crafty Catz - forgotten Stamp
Stamp Something - Cute Something
Crafty Creations - birds/Polka Dots/Green

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls
