Hello everyone, here is my first project for our April challenge.
It's weird, I've never used this die set before, so it was about time because these bunnies are really adorable.
If you need a tutorial, please hop on my blog.


  Hello April and spring!  Today is my birthday (yes seriously, it's not an April Fool) I adore spring flowers and for my first make for this challenge I used the gorgeous Sketched Tulips by Visible Image. also a play with the wonderful new saltwater taffy distress ink. 

I have a full step by step over on my blog here. I also have some photos of the Country View Crafts stand where I demoed for Susan a few weeks back at the  Ally Pally Crafterama show in London. What a fun and very busy weekend we enjoyed. Head on over on my blog here if you would like to see more. There might even be a virtual slice of birthday cake for you too 😄

Bye for now,

Jane x


Spring for me is such a wonderful time - all about the natural world coming back to life and bringing with it the joys of colour, warmth and new life! For me, its also about that twitterpating that goes on in the animal kingdom too! Hence my card for this challenge. You will find more details on my blog here. I do hope you can join our challenge!
Big hugs

At last the grey days are over and we can enjoy a burst of colours in our gardens and countryside! Come to my blog to find out how I made my tag to illustrate the arrival of Spring.


It looks like spring is on its way, so for this month's challenge I created this page "with love" filling it with spring coloured flowers.

I used a couple of beautiful Sizzix Thinlits sets to create the flowers and sentiment. To see how it all came together, please pop over to my blog Let's Art Journal.
