Spring has sprung.

 Well spring is attempting to break through temperatures are starting to warm up but not by much. We have put in our vegie patch...we had a successful vegie patch last year and are hoping to be as successful this year.  The local wildlife didn't invade it, which is always a bonus.  I just love fresh fruit, vegies and herbs straight from the garden. Anyway onto today's card. I am entering this card in the Mad for Markers challenge Spring Time. There is a weird shadow on this card so apologies for that I didn't have time to re take the photo.

How adorable are Krista Smith's stamps, she is a very talented artist.  I have a stack of her rubber stamps and am excited that she has new digis up in her own etsy store....Saturated Canary Digis.  There are so many I like.
For this card I used:
Stamp - Spread your Wings by Krista Smith from Funky Kits
Copics - from Mad for Markers
Hair and shoes C9, C7, C5, C1.
Skin, lips and eyes E11, E00, B00 and R20.
Clothing B000, B00, B02, G20, 0,
Bird, Cage and foliage E35, E25, G24,  C5, C3, C2, B32
Flowers and ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts
Paper - Echo Park Spring Time.
Other - Kindy Glitz, Pink ink and rhinestones coloured with C9.

Well must be off I have a parcel to pick up from the post office (sadly not stamp related it's my husbands so no doubt technology stuff).  I can just imagine the weird looks we are going to recieve my youngest daughter Nell decided she would apply lipstick this morning in her own words she told me she looked boootifool.  It was a little too much so we washed it all off her face but it was not so easy to remove from her hair.  Then this afternoon both Nell and Meg got into my kindy glitz so all three of us are covered in glitter.  Now we all look boootifool :)
Thanks for stopping by.
