Thoughts of Spring

Phew what a day done all my Christmas shopping in a one-er, I now need to lay down with a cold cloth on my head or open the pinot grigio LOL. I am sure you know that feeling :).
Over at JFF the challenge for the month is "Seasons" and this week it is "Spring". I think after the excesses of Christmas and those long winter nights we all look forward to the first signs of spring. Although my daffs have already poked their little green shoots up due to the mild weather. Well I did an ATC size collage (I read about using this style for ATCs somewhere recently, doh can't remember where) using colours that evoke spring. I have used hessian for the main backing and then dry brushed corrugated card with green, lilac and orange (The photo does not show the colour to well). I stitched the flower stems to the card and added the paper punched flowers with a little butterfly. the paper was stamped with a flower using the same colour scheme. A couple of embellishments and done. Happy weekend everyone and try and get through that Xmas shopping. Hugs Sandra XX
PS I went for the pinot :).
