It feels like Spring at last.

It's definately beginning to feel like Spring here........sun and rain........much warmer.......daffs and crocus shooting up.
So spent some time in the garden this weekend........planted 3 new fruit trees [apple,plum and cherry].........and began some clearing on what is going to be the veg patch.........though with OH out of action.........I'm going to find this a mammoth task!!!
You might just notice the enormous tree........this has got to be cut down.......but definately not by me!!!!!
So thought another Springtime card might also be in order.......again used this stamp.....but I am just loving it at the moment.
And only a few challenges this time.......Incy Wincy and Crafty Cardmakers want 'spring'  and Crafty Calendars want 'flower power'.

Beautiful card, Jacky - that stamp really is lovely.. but it's the way you choose your colours and layer your papers and embellies that make it so special!
