Hello Blogger's,

OK that's the business over with ...... on to my cards:

Thinking Spring for all you who are living with Snow!!! 
My card features some of the grasses, one of the butterflies, stamped twice and cut. Plus a sentiment.
Stitching, machine and drawn, ribbon with slider and naturally some Sprinkles.
These long elegant grasses are just beautiful to stamp and perfect for a quick CAS card.

This card is all about texture!
Ribbed base card, Woodgrain embossing, sponging, cork, AnnaBelle Jute (new) with a button.
Two of the beautiful grass stamps with some soft sponging.
The sentiment, from which this set gets it's name attached with a tiny wooden peg.
I did resist the urge to add one of the beautiful butterflies.....

Lots of exciting new stock has been added to the store, pop over for a look. For all the new changes to our challenges and stamp releases see this link.
