Looking forward to spring

As most of my visitors will know, I love making Christmas cards (so much so that I now have my own Christmas challenge blog - why not visit and join in - you can see this week's challenge here), but I've come to the conclusion that I need to put some of my efforts into making some Easter cards, especially as I'll be selling them at our Women's evening fellowship at church on 18 March and also at home for Tearfund on Saturday 26 March.

So here is an Easter card using a new leaping sheep border stamp by Inca, which only required a little copic colouring.

The paper at the base is Forever Friends Spring time and the 'clouds' paper is some that I bought a few years ago (was originally to be used as writing paper).

I've used the colours for the Color dare 96: bashful blue, peach parfait (there is a minimal amount of peach on the bottom paper and I added a few more copic spots on the bigger flowers) and garden green.

And the spring theme is for Going grey: spring fever, also for Really reasonable ribbon 18: spring theme and there is plenty of sky on here for Try it on Tuesday: the sky's the limit. And the theme for Beary sweet 20 is 'winter blues' - what you do to get yourself out of the winter blues - look forward to spring! 'Spring' ... flowers is the theme for Bunny Zoe 9. And Phindy's Friday 42 is 'spring is on the way.

It's also for:

Karen's doodles 50: animal friends
CES 23: cute and cuddly
Pixie cottage 56: ribbon
Do you stack up? 6: ribbons
Whoopsi Daisy: free and easy
Stampin with the dragon: anything goes
