Hello Spring...

Hi folks..."Hello Spring"....you gotta be kidding me...my little corner of the world is covered in a blanket of wintry snow with brass monkey temperatures to match so it looks like it's a bit too early to be counting our Spring chickens and removing that cosy vest just yet. And first job of the day is making sure that my feathered friends have full tummies to keep them warm...
Not great timing but I'm sharing a card I made for the Fiskarettes Blog using the AdvantEdge Punch System and Interchangeable Border Punches...


using the gorgeous "Simply Spring Kit" from WeR Memory Keepers.
My lovely Fiskars buddies Hina and Rachel will be demonstrating the new tools at The Hobbycraft Show at The NEC 21st-24th March on Stand G28 or you can come to the Workshop area and join me for a fun 50 minute play with the new 2013 products.
There's a fun competition running at the moment over at the Fiskarettes blog...
all you need to do to enter is create a card, scrapbook layout or home decor item using border punches and who knows you could be the lucky winner of an AdvantEdge Punch System Starter SetI'll see you all bright and early tomorrow to announce the winner of my Monday Monthly Ribbon Girl Give-Away...if you haven't entered yet...you have until 8pm tonight to get your name in the hat...in the meantime I'm off to turn the heating up a notch or two.
Hugs Kath xxx

Such a gorgeous Spring card, I am surprised it hasn't warmed everything up. It is bitterly cold here. I especially love the candi you have used and the trails. Take care and keep warm. xx Flora

And we have snow here in the Beacons too - off & on flurries all day & very cold but with brilliant sunshine at times. Wonder if the seasons have turned themselves about - the plants are getting very confused I think.
