Hedgehog spring

Morning all - Yes it is May time already ...

another month has gone by - where does the time go?

Here is my card for today 

I have used Little Claire Digi stamp here and used my Minc foiling 
machine to "gold" up the image. 

Coloured in the squares with Spring colours 

Just to show you the gold  foiling 

 Mounted onto a Little Claire backing paper having mounted the topper onto 
gold and black card. 

Added ric rak ribbon to the edge adding 
various spring colour flowers and a sentiment both from 
Craftwork Cards.  These are all snippets of bibs and bobs.

The ribbon was just long enough to add to the edge and the
flowers out of a bag of different size flowers which I have had for
ages. Finally able to use up some "stuff" 

Added glitter to the flowers 

Hope you like it and would like to enter it for the 


I am finding my time is taken up at the moment with 
my phone calls to my Mum. 

She is making a good recovery from here Stroke in January 
but she "will never be as strong" as she use to be. 
She is finding it difficult to adjust and her memory is 
not good. 

It will be her birthday on the 5th May - parcel already sent and
has arrived :) 

Hope she will like the enclosed items - will let you know. 

Had a good day out in the garden yesterday - the rain did not come, but has 
arrived today. Boy I am aching but glad I got a few more seeds in the ground. 

By the way our potatoes are showing their heads !!! 

Best get on and leave it for today 

Thanks for popping over to see me.
