March challenge

Time for our March challenge over at

Nature covers so many elements in our everyday lives and it is so often taken for granted what Mother Nature provides: flowers, plants, wild animals, breathtaking scenery and landscapes, the ocean, wildlife and so the list goes on. We are sure you will all have your own takes on this lovely theme and what better time of the year than Spring. And if you get really stuck then lets see lots of blossoms and flowers.

This month we have an absolutely brilliant prize!

Definitely a reason to get those stamps out and join in the fun!!

For my card I used
Stamps - Came with Crafters Inspiration magazine
Papers - lilac vellum from my stash
Embellishments - pearls, ribbon, spellbinders die, doodling,
Medium - coloured with promarkers

Sooooooo cold here! Dry thankfully but cold!
I have had an old bug on me this week, top and bottom lol. But not very pleasant.
Beginning to recover now hopefully.
My daughter and her partner and my son and his partner are all heading to Latvia on Monday where I believe it is even colder lol. But I am sure it will be a lovely experience for them. 
My hubby is off next week but we are going to  be stuck at home as we have no dog minder but at least it will be quiet!
Anyone any nice plans for mid term break?
