When we got home we found that it was 16c in our little sheltered garden.
The pots I planted up in the autumn are looking splendid.
The hellebore I bought last year has come back into flower and wow what a beauty it is.
My card today was inspired by the gorgeous crocuses and the thought of spring being on its way.
The bird stamp is Designed by Ryn, such a cool stamp. I stamped it onto card and added some distress inks and a flash of metallic. I then I fussy cut it out. The flower spray, which I white embossed, is an old Noor stamp, sadly long discontinued. These are 2 of my favourite stamps.
I made a distress ink background, lots of layers and drying in between.
My card was made for the following challenges;

I really hope some sunshine reaches you at some point over the weekend. I know we are not out of winter yet as despite this lovely mild weather, which is set to last into next week, there is talk of snow the week after! How fickle is our weather here in the UK?
Thanks so much for visiting, enjoy your Sunday.
Bye for now,
