Spring is in the air!!!.......hmmmmm?!?!

Well spring was in the air!!Lol! Now it's cold and wet ... and it's snowing a few miles up the Road!!! Aaarrgghhh!!! Well our Challenge over at basic grey this fortnight is...
Spring is in the air!!
And with all the beautiful sunshine and birds singing last week, methinks I got maybe a little to optimistic with my spring card!!!!!!
Hmmmmm I think the sentiment says it all!!! DREAM !!  Ok so maybe it's more summery than spring like but a girl can wish!!
This beautiful image is an Elisabeth bell stamp called sunshine and apples! She is an original Bells and whistles Red rubber stamp, how sad was I when this company closed down :( I really need to dig out my Elisabeth bell stamps more often!! I am  quite precious about them and have nearly all the originals!! Love them!!!  I have coloured the image with my copics, I followed the beautiful sketch over at Elisabeth bells world challenge, the papers are basic grey Lilykate, yes the La La land corner is back and the letters for the sentiment are from an ancient K & Co set.
The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
cupcake inspirations challenge -  pick your challenge  - challenge 77 (apples)
papertake weekly - anything goes
Simon says stamp - A bit o' green

Well I still have a long way to go with sorting my craft room!! It's scary how much junk I have, but I can't part with it!!!!
Have a great weekend! and all you mums out there have a fab day tomorrow!
