Kre8tors Blog Hop - Spring...

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog, today I am hopping with the Kre8tors Blog Hop and this month we are using the theme 'Spring'.  Spring and Autumn are my two favourite seasons, Spring especially because I love to see all the new shoots appearing.  This year has been particularly exciting as we moved home in August so it has been lovely to see what has been popping up here and there.  We also have lots of fruit trees so the blossom has been amazing.

When I think of Spring I also think of April showers which led me to the beautiful Under My Umbrella stamp set and co-ordinating punch.

As much as I love the dies, a co-ordinating punch is so useful, especially in classes.

Here is my card...

Since we have been in lockdown here in the UK, a small group of UK Demonstrators and friends have been holding Zoom meetings on a Friday night to check in with each other and make sure everyone is ok.  Last week we did a virtual shoebox swap which was hugely successful so this is the card I made for our second virtual shoebox swap.  We choose a stamp set we all have and if we use something somebody doesn't have we just swap things out!

Here are a couple of close ups...

This is the same card in a slightly different colour way.

I hope I have inspired you a little today.  I am now going to pass you on to Cheryl who will have something lovely to share with you today I have no doubt.

Happy Stampin' and Keep Safe
