Spring is here!

Afternoon all I've just popped in to show you my card for this week's LIM challenge which is as follows:
For our colour challenge this month we have chose real Spring colours

Lovely spring colours and I used a NBUS stamp set from Clearly Besotted coloured with PM's and a little decoupage,come and see:

I die cut an aperture and stamped so that the image extended over the front.

The fortnightly challenge for the Quotes and Lyrics challenge over at the Craft Barn is to use the words

My first thoughts were the Dixie Cups hit in the 60's with Chapel of Love and so that's what I went with. I printed out one verse and got a bit inky with La Blanche stamps and Twilight Brilliance ink.

Thanks for all your enquiries re Jim's progress, he's doing very well, just using one stick now and going out for his walks solo:)

I'll be back a little later in the week with a couple of birthday cards to show you, thanks for visiting, I love to read your comments:)

Just beautiful Val! Love to see daffs at this time of year - stamped OR real! - and I love the way yours have extended over the aperture. Great news that Jim is recovering so well. Vicky x

Love the spring card - daffodils are starting to appear so spring must be on the way.

Unknown said...

Two lovely cards Val - just wishing Spring would get a move on; although can't grumble as we've had a few quite nice days. Love the daffodils and the colours, words and scrolls on the second card are lovely. Glad Jim's getting on so well.

First of all, glad to hear the update on Jim and that he is doing so well!

I really love your spring daffodil card, Val. So clever and beautifully executed! And the "Marriage" card, so pretty!! You have brought back memories and now I can't get that song out of my head! That's okay, I love that song! Hugs, Darnell

Your Craft Barn card is lovely and I had to find that song because I had never heard it before. I really like the lacy effect, too.

You also made a lovely spring card. I'm REALLY wishing it would come to my part of the world.

Viv said...

Smashing Daffodil card Val, it's impossible to see them and not smile :D I like the aperture too, great stuff!
Your tag is magic, well found with the lyrics too, I guess that would be one of your things :D What with all the choir work :D
Have a wonderful week my friend, hugs Gay xx

Your first card is just so beautiful. I really like how you did your flowers and the fold too. The second one is just so pretty and fun at the same time.!!
