At the gate

I have a busy crafting afternoon ahead. DT cards and more Crafter's Companion samples to be made so a quick post from me with my card for today. Waving hello to my two new followers thanks for joining me.

I've used one of the stamps I won from Kath, a gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are bits and pieces from my to be used pile so I shall be joining in with Lisa's(Wishcraft) waste not Wednesday for fun post. I've added some faux stitching, MS and Fiskars punched butterflies and pearls. The flowers are from my assorted odds and ends jar. Sometimes it makes a change to use bits and bobs like this. I was thinking of the lovely Spring blossom when I chose the colours for this one.
Challenges:
Papertake For the girls
ABC DT Springtime
My Mum's Craft Shop Spring colours
2 Sisters Spring colours
Willow Sketch Fab sketch

I'll also be playing along with the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge. Right, time to link my card and then back to the crafting.
