Oldie But A Goodie #13 - Spring Is In the Air

Happy Tuesday everyone, and welcome to another Oldie But A Goodie Challenge. Thanks so much to everyone who joined in last time with the "Have A Heart" challenge - hope you will check out the main challenge blog to see if you have won the prize :-)

This time it is Fleur's turn to pick the challenge theme, and she has decided to banish those winter blues with a theme of

Spring is In the Air

Fleur has also donated the following fab prize for this challenge ... an adorable SWALK stamp set plus some flowers and charms ... soooo pretty!!

Also Fleur will be picking a "Top 3", and will be asking the first of her top three to join us as a Guest Designer for April - woo hoo!

Don't forget that in order to be eligible for the prize you should submit a new piece of work and use a stamped image (not a digi) that is at least 6 months old ... so have a little riffle through your stamp box to find an old but loved stamp ... and of course have fun!! :-)

The other ladies on the DT have truly sprung into spring , so please do go and check out their gorgeous cards - here's my card for this fortnight.

This gorgeous Penny Black stamp has been around as a wooden stamp for a long time, but was released last summer as a slapstick stamp ... and I couldn't resist. Having said that I'm ashamed to say that I have never inked it up until now ... but with its fabulous profusion of daffodils and other spring flowers, it was the first stamp that came into my mind for this challenge.

Main image: Penny Black "You're the Bestest", coloured with Promarkers;
Sentiment: Penny Black
Papers: Papermania "Forever Friends - Spring Time";
Supplies: daffodils from Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House & Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon from Hobbycraft;
Tools: Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" edge punch; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch.
