Spring ...Almost !

Good afternoon and a warm welcome to my  new followers it’s great to be able to share with so many talented people and enjoy their amazing blogs. I’m always thrilled when I have a new follower come along and I hope they enjoy in sharing my crafting journey. This week’s card is another Tilda with a bright and bold theme. The plan was to finish and post during the week as it was based around a challenge of using lime green and pink; but it took me to long to finish and I’ve missed the challenge deadline! I have enjoyed making it though and it’s not for anyone or reason in particular other than pleasure, although had I realised it was mothers day next week I would have been planning for that instead …oops! I will need to be a bit organised  if want to get my mothers day card posted on I  know what I will be doing next week !. It's been good this week to see some  sunshine and lighter mornings... spring at last is on the way :-)
Party Tilda

 Close up 

I had fun making this card and using bright colours which I know isn't everyone’s cup of tea but is bright and cheerful. I also got to use some new dies that I ordered that came this week from Dies to Die for. It’s the first time I’ve ordered from them and I’m very impressed with their service. The photo below shows my new goodies and a selection of freebie die cut elements that came with my purchase. The purchases came wrapped in coloured tissue paper and included a personal note with the invoice and some freebies tucked inside… what a nice touch and great customer service, I will definitely be ordering from them again, it was like receiving a gift from a friend and made my day. Thanks for visiting and hope you have a great week …hugs Andrea x
