Spring a licious

Isn't it lovely to see daylight before work in the morning, and feel the weather warming up a little bit? On my way to work I pass a series of grass banks that are filled with gorgous happy little crocuses (or is that crocii?) in yellow and white and purple. They make me smile every morning (no mean feat at 7.30am), and I know that once they start to fade, I'll start to see the cheerful yellow daffodils, and then it's just a matter of time before I'm complaining about the heat of summer!!!!!

In honour of springtime, and because I needed some cards for little girls, I dug out a cutesy stamp called Maggie with Spring Flowers and got making.

 Maggie is coloured with Promarkers, and the backing paper is DCWV. The flowers are fabulous, with a slightly sude effect finish, and came from my Mom!!! The flower centre sentiment is by Stampin' Up, and the ribbon was a bargain roll from Hobbycraft.

This is my challenge entry for-

Crafty Cardmakers- Spring into Spring
Totally Gorjuss- Ribbon
Challenge up your life- Flower
Allsorts- Spring is in the air
By the cute and girly- Spring is in the air

Maggie is coloured with Promarkers, the papers were a gift and the Make a Wish stamp is from ScrappyCat.

I'm entering this into Fussy and Fancy Friday's Green challenge.
