The Creative Cottage Challenge 35 - Spring Has Sprung

Hello hello hello! Hope you're all well and enjoying a bit of nicer weather! Has Spring sprung near you yet? Well it has at The Creative Cottage Challenge... Donna has chosen the theme this fortnight, so we'd like to see all your lovely Spring themed creations! You could be in with a chance to win two kits of your choice from The Creative Cottage... so get crafting!

My card has been created using the 'Much Love Kit' from The Creative Cottage... the papers and image are from this lovely digi kit! I've added embossing too and a few other embellishments and the little sentiment is a Penny Black stamp.

I'm entering the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad - Buttons
Allsorts Challenge - Luck of the Irish (I've used the colour green as my inspiration)

Ok, I've now got a HUGE task on my hands... I have to sort out my wardrobe which is overflowing with clothes that 'might' fit me again one day (like in another life) and I've been putting the task off for AGES now, but as I've bought a few new bits and bobs lately (that do not have the wrong sizes on them) I need to make space! Wish me luck!!! Or even better, send Gok Wan around pronto!

Good Luck Shelly, it's not an easy task... that's why I am putting it off too, after 2 babies, I am still klinging on to the clothes I LOVE, but as far as fitting in it-as you said: " in the next life"....
