Spring Colours

Hello All!
We are having snowfall again as I type this. Hopefully it won`t last because I`m sick of it already lol.The forecast isn`t very good though so it looks like another slip slide to work tomorrow. Roll on spring.
With the nasty weather we`re all having my thoughts are turning to warmer times and I felt in the need for some spring like colours.Luckily it`s a work colleagues birthday on Sunday so I made her a card.
A nice simple but pretty one this time. My first thought was to bring out what`s left of my Papermania Blueberry Hill pad but on the off chance I checked in my snippet box and found just what I wanted.
I haven`t used an image as I wanted the DP to do the talking, it`s so gorgeous. A piece of white trim to cover the join in DP`s, a ribbon and bow and a computer generated sentiment on a tag and thats it. I`ve used a piece of silver cord that I got with some shop bought christmas tags to tie the tag onto the bow to finish.
I`m going to enter this into Pixie`s crafty snippets challenge #6. It`s the first time I`ve joined in with the snippet challenge since Di took over from Jules but hopefully I`ll be able to join in a bit more in the future. Still got lots of pesky snippets to use up.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
