Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 123 - Spring

Hey Everyone

I hope Mr Blogger is behaving himself as I have scheduled this post as I will be at the GNPE show in Harrogate where I intend to spend lots of money on all the things I just need and have to have - I'm sure you all know what I mean ;o)

Before I get onto this week's challenge I need to give a great big WELCOME to all my new followers - I am totally flattered and blown away that you have decided to follow me - THANK YOU all so much.  Stay posted as I will be sorting out some blog candy shortly seeing as I have surpassed the 100 mark - any ideas for blog candy would be welcome.

Anyways enough waffle from moi - onto this week's challenge over at Totally Gorjuss which is "Spring".

To be in with a chance to win some vouchers we want to see all your creations that has a "spring" theme and our lovely sponsor this week is Heather's Hobby Haven - go and check out what the DT girlies have made over at Totally Gorjuss there is just a plethora of inspiration for you.

Here is my card:

Another CAS card for me with a SPRING lamb on the front and I've got to say I'm really lovin' the clean and simple look.  The recipe for the card is as follows:

Digi Stamp:  Whimsy Digital Stamps - Crissy's Digi "Spring Lamb"

Image Coloured with Copics:

Face:  C2 C1 C0 C00 R30
Legs & Feet:  C2 C1 C0 C00 C7 C5 C4
Flowers:  BV00 BV000 BV0000 Y15
Grass:  G46 G43 G40
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have used Liquid Applique for the sheep's coat (love this stuff!)

And that's all there is to it.  I have mounted the card onto some lilac card stock and stitched around it with my sewing machine.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments as always - I love visiting all your blogs, I get so much inspiration from them.

Ta ra for now and have a fabulous weekend.
