Spring Favourites

Half-way through March and we are starting to see some lovely Spring days, even if they are usually followed promptly by snow!

We are also half-way through the By The Cute And Girly favourites challenge for March and I have a Spring/Easter make today to, hopefully, give you some inspiration.

What are the favourites today?  Well, there's Copics of course and one of my stamping favourites, Whiff Of Joy.  The Girl And Lamb stamp is on a 50% off bargain at the moment.  

There's also Wild Orchid Crafts embellishments, my favourite paper flower supplier.

Looking back at my card though there was definitely something missing and I realised it was one of my top favourites, butterflies!!  Here's the card with a sprinkling of butterflies added.  All of the papers are from Crate Papers Little Bo Peep 6x6 pad, a good mix of papers, not just girly floral ones.

Challenges:
Whiff Of Joy #150 - Happy Easter
Moving Along With The Times - Spring is in the air
Country View Crafts - Pick and mix
Bunny Zoe - Girly
Allsorts #197 - Springtime
Crafty Calendar - Easter

Just a quick note for anyone who, like me, uses Google Reader to keep up with the daily blogging and craft inspiration.  An announcement has been made that the service will be retired on 1 July 2013, read the Guardian article here and also find links to online petitions.  I have signed the petition, but to be honest in the meantime I have exported my list to Bloglovin.  I haven't been able to add or remove feeds from the list in some time and have felt that the service has been unsupported for a while.  As far as I am aware Google Friends Connect remains available, but only for following Blogger sites.
