Well I don't know about you but I certainly wish Spring had Sprung.  It looks the business today but it's rather chilly out there.

I'm dipping my toe into another new challenge for me today over at Ready Teddy Go.  It's a monthly challenge so plenty of time to join in.  The theme is 'Spring has Sprung' and what better evidence than the daffodils popping their heads out.  I just happened to have some daffodil papers in my stash and there was my inspiration.

The Digistamp Boutique also have a monthly challenge so I'm going to pop my card over there too.  Anything goes providing one of Digistamp Boutique's images has been used and there's plenty of lovely ones to choose from.

Card Recipe:

Image: Bella on a Swing from The Digistamp Boutique
Papers: KandCompany - these are a Tim Coffey illustrated design.  I've had them a long time.
Sentiment: Computer Generated using Great Vibes and Gingersnaps
Tools: Nestabilities, Cricut and Promarkers
Plus a sprinkling of DAZZLE with glamour dust and pearls from my stash


  1. Hi Sarah

    This is just fabulous! Love how the daffodils partly cover the image die cut - and such a splash of Spring. Great card - are you sure you didn't use even a teeny snippet? :)

    Hugs, Di xx

    1. Thanks for the great comments Di. Errrm! Well I guess there are a few snippets on there. Sorry I'm new to all this challenging. I can't decide whether it's best to enter one card for several challenges or concentrate on one card per challenge. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks again. x

  2. Welcome to our challenge Sarah, I'm so glad you found us!
    Thank you for sharing such an adorable 'spring-like' card. The background papers are just perfect and that teddy image is just too cute.
    We hope to see you back again for our next challenge and good luck in this one.
    Warmest wishes,
    Julie Ann x
