Spring Competition

Firstly I would like to apologise for going missing for such a long time and to thank you all for your kind comments and emails regarding my dad.  

I have been hunting high and low for my mojo since my dad died and unfortunately I still haven't found it!   All I have made in the last few months is this one card and a couple of candles so I am desperately in need of inspiration......and what better way to be inspired than to have a Spring Competition so that I can see all your lovely work.

So here's the competition - make anything Spring related (you can interpret Spring in any way you like - it could just be in the use of Springtime colours).  Absolutely anything goes as long as it is handmade (Card, ATC, jewellery, canvas, scrapbook page......anything!)  

This is the prize that is up for grabs: 

Innovative Stamp Creations unmounted Rubber Stamps - Harlequin Flowers.
10 Metres of Spring coloured ribbons
18 Charms

(the winner will be chosen by several of my family and friends - I will not be judging as I always want everyone to win!)
All you need to do to enter is email a picture of your 'Spring' creation to before Midnight on Monday 4th May 2009. The winner will be announced on the 7th May.

Here is my example.

xx Karen

I just love this card - such a wonderful combination of different stamps.

I an useless at card making - I get a mental 'block'. I really must try harder

I have been looking through all your older posts - and found some really good tips and techniques - thanks for sharing

Hi Karen,
I'm stopping by to thank you for your kind and precious support this past year. Elizabeth left us Thursday, April 30... on her birthday. How often we have looked at and enjoyed the beautiful picture that you made for her. It was a favorite. Sending you hugs, love, and a huge thank you that will never be forgotten.
