Has Spring finally arrived? - Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge week 95 DT card-My sketch + Creative Inspirations challenge

Good morning everyone...I thought Spring had peeped out for a while yesterday then I went outside and the wind was cold...but I think a few others thought the same because I could hear lawn mowers starting up...I felt like shouting out my window don't be fooled its just pretending you mad people but thought it better to leave them alone...wasn't it last year when it snowed in March? My card for today is for our challenge over at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge which this week is a sketch by me, I hope this one is a bit more successful than the last...I would cross my fingers but I cant paint with them like that, I did discover when I was demoing in the Kings Hall in Belfast that I can colour upside down though, are you impressed...I was lol...back to my card this week I decided to use this sweet hAnglar image isn't she gorgeous and the amazing papers are from Graphic45 Once upon a Springtime collection, the flowered is called Primrose cottage and the striped is Once upon a Springtime, I cut some of the flowers from the paper for the corner and added a mix of ribbons and a sentiment cut from ribbon to finish...when you have time pop on over to Just Magnolia and have a look at the amazing DT's work...wow...Im entering this for the Creative Inspirations stripes challenge...I'm trying to get up the momentum to tidy my craftroom today but have a feeling I wont as I usually find something to play with instead...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
