Spring is in the air.....

everywhere I look how many of you know that one???

Well I have not had much time to do anything on my days off this week. Housework yesterday...boring and then I had a funeral this morning but then went for lunch with Lou and then more housework this afternoon...thought I would wash everything in sight since it was nice and I was able to hang the washing outside today and even's all dry!!

So a quickie before I head to Tesco...the papers are from the nitwits collections and the image is from Sugar Nellie which I coloured with copics and then did a bit shading with my pencils. The flowers have been cut with a MFT flower die-namic die with some pearls added to the centres. Ichalked the clouds onto the oval and some little birds and layered it onto the scallop oval...which I cut by hand with my little Stampin Up slit punch. I have entered the following challenges.

The Sugar Bowl - sketch/spring
Saturday Challenge - flowers and female
OSAAT - glitter/gems

Stamp & Create - spring
Whoopsi Daisy - flowers
