Springtime Fun

Good evening and thanks for popping by. What a fabulous sunny and warm day it's been today and the good news is it's set to continue (fingers crossed) over the weekend.

There are quite a few spring theme challenges around at the moment and I also saw one for 'April showers bring May flowers' which immediately brought to mind this decoupage I have. It's a House Mouse from the 'spring is mice' collection and the little meecies look like they're having so much fun 'showering' with the lovely spring crocuses around them. The paper is Dovecraft 'back to basics' and the spotty one is from my scraps box. I used Memory Box 'fairytale flower border' die and added some flowers and ribbon from my stash. Finally, the sentiment is from a Hobby House card kit.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Oldie But A Goodie challenge 'April showers bring May flowers' (everything on this is over 6 months old)
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Spring'
Crafting For All Seasons challenge 'Dies and punches'
Divas By Design challenge 'Easter / spring'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'Spring'
Bearly MIne challenge 'Spring'
Paper Creators Crafts challenge 'Spots & dots'
Rhedd and Rosie challenge 'Anything goes' (my 3rd entry)
House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'Flowers & flourishes'

Hope you all have a great weekend whatever you plan on doing.
