While it is a while to spring here, I am inspired by all the spring challenges around at the moment to create something with a spring feel to it.

Butterfly and Flowers

It feels good to be able to create again.  I'm starting to feel better each day although I'm still feeling fairly tired toward the end of the day.  I really hope I can shake this fairly soon.

Softness in Pastel

There is a real soothing softness in pastel colours.  At the moment I'm still fighting this chest infection that I have so it is soothing to create something in pastels.  Mind you, I did have a bit of trouble finding embellishments in pastel shades - it is amazing how much I have in bright cheery colours!

Hello

Sometimes I lose touch with people - so it is good to have some cards to just say "Hello" and re-connect with them again.  And I have a few of these I need to send at the moment!
