The Creative Cottage Challenge 35...Spring has Sprung

G'morning all...I'm pleased to report that my children are now on the mend...they were both struck down with a nasty bug in the early hours of yesterday morning and it went on until late afternoon before things calmed down for them...fingers crossed me and hubby don't get it now!

On a happier note we have a new challenge for you over at The Creative Cottage today and I have chosen the theme...SPRING HAS SPRUNG...I don't see many signs of spring at the mo's snowing in Scotland and getting colder here...poor little bunnies and daffs...they must be so confused! There's a chance to win 2 kits from The Creative Cottage shop if you enter this challenge and Tracy has just released a fab Strawberry Garden kit that has such pretty papers and can see my card here using the new kit.

Don't forget if you want a chance to win some Polka Doodles stamps I'm giving is the last day you can enter...I'll be drawing a winner at 8pm tonight (GMT)
