Some spring colours....

Just a quick post today because hopefully the plumber will be here any minute now to fix my naughty boiler! Had no hot water now for 2 days!!! :-(

This is for Paul's Mum's birthday. I've used my fave forever friends stamp, coloured with promarkers and paper pieced the pressie. The papers are Wild Rose Studio - just the thing for encouraging Spring! The Mum stamp is one of papermania's relations clear stamps. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the flowers were bought for my birthday last year - I'm surprised I've still got some left!

I followed a sketch from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering this into the challenges at Whoopsi Daisy (Someone Special) and A Spoon Full of Sugar (Birthday Wishes).

Have a fab day!

Love 'n' hugs,
