Spring Gallery Day!

Hello to my follower friends!
As promised today is your day for sharing your projects inspired by these Spring images...

First up we have two projects from Melanie
Obviously I am loving the butterflies! The Cosmic Shimmer glue dots work so well - all so pretty. 
 This project is so sweet and definitely Spring like - cute little Easter baskets created from Spellbinders ovals and Layered Flowers are featured on the Beatrix Potter card.
Thank you Melanie.

Next we have Liz who has made a tag inspired by the yellows of Springtime. She has tied this to a jar of lemon sherberts and humbugs.
I can spot the clever die cutting and embossing use Eyelet Circles.
A close up of those gorgeous flowers.
Thank you Liz.

Next up is Elizabeth with a elegant Spring tulips card.
Oh how I love the use of twine with a pretty embossed and inked tag too.
 Elizabeth was inspired by the yellow flowers in the picture collage.
She says that "Spring IS yellow - the Spring chicks, the sun and all the lovely shades in the garden
as nature is beginning to wake up making it feel bright and fresh."
I totally agree Elizabeth and thank you for your creation.

Next we have Christine who was particularly inspired by the flowery shapes in the third picture down
on the left hand side.  I think she's captured them perfectly and a beautiful sentiment.
I'm also thrilled that she's added butterflies... :)
Thank you Christine.

Next we have Alpaca Kathy.
Kathy was inspired by the landscape photo for her background,
the colourful eggs and flowers for her decorations.
Look at these wonderful bright colours and photographed against a Grand Calibur too!
I am loving the amount of dies used, the ribbon and twine mix and the very essential butterfly!
Thank you Kathy.

Next we have Carole who was inspired by the Spring lamb photo, on her birthday she went to see some lambing (I love this idea, it's now on my to-do list!)
Following her visit she put together this adorable layout.
Butterflies - wonderful, and using felt looks great and sanding the embossed Labels Twenty-Three.
Carole also created this lovely Spring gift bag..this was inspired by my chocolate one some days back.
Wonderful job Carole and brilliant use of so many dies, layering Heart Circles works brilliantly.
Thank you Carole.

Next we have Anne.
She says that when she thinks about Spring she thinks mainly of butterflies and flowers -
a lady after my own heart there.
Anne has created this flowery and butterfly adorned card which she has featured on her blog too.
What a brilliant stamp - I'm thinking I should start to wear my hair a little like this..!!

Super card and great use of Classic Scalloped Squares, thank you Anne.

I am truly grateful to those crafters who have taken part in my Spring Inspiration Day.
In fact to show my appreciation I would like to send you all a gift so drop me an email with your address and I will send something nice your way!

Finally a picture from me...can you tell Easter is nearly over, hardly any mini-eggs left in my jar!!

I will be doing another inspiration day in the next month or so,
take care friends and I will be back tomorrow.

Gosh, what beautiful cards your followers have created, such clever people, oh well, better get practicing to be as a good as this, only problem is, my Grand Calibur gave up on me last night! Will have to get it checked out as still under warranty. I will do some manual crafting and stamping instead! Take care Alison :)
