1 card, 1 ATC, 3 challenges!

There was glorious sunshine here today! We saw signs of spring trying to win the battle over winter on the way to school this morning !! On the way to pick up Mikael, I introduced Alix to his shadow, he loved that idea!! It sounded like hundreds of birds had come out just to sing too!! I haven't enjoyed the school run like that for soooo long!!

Cute card Thursday's challenge is signs of spring this week, it can be interpreted through the image embellishments or colours. I have gone with spring colours and a pair of love birds image (well they are nesting and all loved up at the mo!!)

I have used the Friday Sketchers sketch#40 by Jacqueline for the card.

Hop over and check out both DT cards they are gorgeous!!

The papers are daisy bucket available HERE The stamps are the free ones with last months cardmaking and papercraft mag. The birds and flowers are coloured with pencils. The wire is from stash. I have doodled a border around the birds and outside of the card. If I get 5 mins I might carry on inside the card but I wanted to get a few projects done this week so have left it for now.

I haven't made any ATC's for awhile so I made a matching ATC to add to the slowly growing collection. It also fits the Crafts 4 Eternity February ATC challenge so I will add it there too! I used the sketch for the ATC as well minus the sentiment.

That's me for today I have been surfing the net and am full of ideas! I find I always have lots of ideas and not enough time to do them!! In my recent spring clean of my craftroom I found a folder of templates and projects from years ago! I am going to have to play!! I still haven't completely finished my spring clean I got sidetracked again...must focus!!! LOL!!

Do check out the crafts 4 eternity website if you have a mo there are challenges and all sorts to see, The gallery is filling up nicely too!
Thanks for stopping by

big spring HUGS!!!!
