It's looking a little like Spring

And it's certainly raining like it's Spring.....the weather's a bit warmer here.....but a lot wetter.....though there's always the possibility that winter may re-appear. I'm just hoping that the rain stops for long enough for me to get out in the garden......there's a lot needs doing [I'm not a winter gardener]......and the signs of Spring are all around.
So to give Spring a bit of encouragement......a card full of the joys of Spring......and the colours to match.....inspired by a card on Debby's wonderful blog.
And a few challenges.......Saturday Challenge and Card Makin Mamas want 'green'.......'anything goes' for Papertake Weekly........and I used the lovely sketch at The Sweet Stop
