Spring colours....




Spring is quickly creeping up on us here. We've had great weather and snow is melting like crazy. I can even see my grass peeking through! I saw the great sketch over at Midweek Magnolia and had to join in. I also combined the colourful challenge from Magnolialicious Challenge blog. I thought this Tilda would look cute paper pieced so I've tried some new Basic Grey papers for her dress. The rest is coloured with distress inks. Over at Simply Magnolia they have anything goes challenge. Simon Says Stamp - Bit O Green, Stamp and Create - Paper Piecing
Have a fab day!
