Spring is in the Air....

 Well If I shut my eyes and stand next to the radiator I might feel like its spring. Its still raining here but the wind has died down a wee bit.  Lovely Scottish weather!!! LOL I wanted to get out to tidy the garden a bit this weekend but its far too wet. 
Anyway enough yapping about the weather. Here is one of the cards I have done today.  Mum needed 1 more thank you card for when she retires.

SU Stamp - coloured with Yellow Promarkers and Sakura Pen Stardust.

I would like to enter my card in tot the following challenges.

Can I just say Thanks to Chrissie over at Less is More for her great advice last week. My picture came out yellow from all the white confusing the camera. Well this week with a 12 x 12 black piece of card it worked a treat!!! Thanks xxxx.  

Off now to chill out as I am a bit tired today.
