Good Morning lovely peeps.

Well it looks today as though spring may just be on the way ....Winter this year seems to have dragged on forever and I am ready for a bit of warmer weather and some sunshine.
The Stamps this month reflect this we have three lovely clear set, and two foam stamps all very useful for different reasons.  My first card is made with the new Allotment set from Hobby Art  using a Woodgrain Stencil made by Tim Holtz you can find it on the Hobby Art Website I frayed a bit of hessian and put that behind the image for a bit of extra interest.

Oh I did enjoy making this one it's a crossover card I added two packets of seed would be great for someone who likes to garden don't you think? I made this one with My Uncle Harold in mind ...bless him a few years ago he would have loved this alas old age comes to us all and he is now 92 , Love him loads but he is a little long in the tooth now days to be digging his garden.

The Hobby Art Allotment set
Woodgrain Stencil

 This is a quick card which would be Ideal as a little notelet ....The Allotment set and Brighten your day set used again ....I could play forever with these you get it that I like them !!!!!

Lights & Lanterns
Next many pretty lights here I thought they worked really well for invites ... below I used the bleeding tissue technique.

They work well for invites I thought using the lovely Alphabet set From Hobby Art.

Next are the two foam stamps Goosey Gander (Love that name
I have used this one with the other shed from the Allotment set just so you could see what it looked like
I actually thought it made a good Duck House! 

Lastly we have the Floral Basket

Coloured with Aqua markers and using one of the Brighten My day sentiments .

Hope you enjoy these have a very crafty day
