I  love Spring and have been enjoying making Spring cards - they always work so well for  the people we know and love. Isn't it lovely to have sunshine and longer days again? I love the lighter nights and mornings.

I'm linking to these challenges today:-
Make My Monday, Diamonds
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, Beautiful Blooms
Moo Mania and More, Spring Fever
Country View Challenges, Easter or Spring
Paper Minutes, Anything Goes
Penny Black Saturday Challenge, Anything Goes + Spring colours

This is one of my favourite PB stamps and I've used it in lots of different colours and designs, but I really like it in these lovely shades of pink. I used Victorian Velvet  Oxide for the shading and the stamping,  with a little Spun Sugar, adding more colour with Prisma Pencils.

I used a Harlequin background stamp and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide for this one, stamping some text in Victorian Velvet over it before stamping the Tim Holtz blooms, again adding colour with Prisma Pencils.

Lastly, a little simple card to celebrate my favourite creatures 😉
A little sponging and stamping for the ground beneath the Prisma Pencil coloured birds, then some stencilling above, with a few Tweets and simple words to complete it.

Thank you for calling in today

I'll be back soon

Great cards Cath.I am with you about loving spring. The only problem I have with it is that is can e pretty unpredictable here. But that is part of the excitement, the waiting and the watching things change. But you re 100% right about loving the longer days and sunshine. That is so exciting. Hope you are having a wonderful spring day. hugs-Erika

Beautiful Spring artwork. They are so nice and cheery to see. It is wonderful to have the days getting longer, and to see plants starting to grow again. I don't know about you, but I had a longer than usual Winter, with several colder than normal temperature spells. Even Spring is coming in reluctantly, temperature wise. We have a few warm days, then it gets cold again. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons.
