Spring is in the Air

Hi all on this dull and miserable wet
Tuesday hope your are well.
Aren't you just fed up of this weather, they were
even talking about lack of vitamin D this morning on 
the BBC, i think we are all suffering.

Well it's Papertake time again and this week
the theme is 

Happy Highlights

We want you to highlight part of the image 
or paper with something like 
Glossy Accents, Glitter or decoupage.

This week we are sponsored by
Who have 7 digi stamps up for grabs. 

I have used one of the images available from
Bugaboo. This one is from the scene it range
called Ladybugs.
I have used my Promarkers and Flexmarkers
to colour it in.
I used Glossy Accents on the Ladybugs.
Papers are from K and Co best of paper pad.
Sentiment i found online as a freebie digi
Flowers are Prima and i have used 
Martha Stewart punches for the leaves and
the background.
Ribbon from the Ribbon Girl.
Pin from stash.

Please go and check out the other girls DT work
they are all just fab.

I took a picture of the roses i bought
whilst food shopping last week

Aren't they just gorgeous and cheap to.
I bought them from Aldi £3 for 11 roses.
They had them in all sorts of fab colours.
I got pink as it's my favourite colour.

I'm also on with making a Granny Square
Spring blanket and with the amount of squares
i've got to do it will probably be spring before
i finish making them.

I've got 400+ to make, i've forgotten the total off the 
top of my head but i have it written down
in colour combo's so i don't loose my way
and have to recount.

 Fortunately they are not to big so you can make a square 
quite quickly and i'm finishing them off on the back 
as i go so i don't have to do it all at the end.
I can imagine that would take days in itself.

I'm aiming to try and get it finished before our 
first VW show in the spring.
I also fancy making some bunting to go 
round the van as well.
I think i'm going to be a busy bee........Buzz.

Thanks for looking 
Take care
