Spring is almost here!!! and new blog look!

Hi! Another week has passed and another week that I've been so busy that I've just managed to make one card... I guess that one card is better than none! what I did in between tasks this week is changing the look on my blog... I decided to make it more bright and crafty looking... I hope you like it!

Time is really going so fast... Spring is almost here! well.. It's still freezing out there, but the sun seems to come out a lot more. I just can't wait for the better weather, although I'm not one to make a lot of winter cards... I tend to use bright colours and flowers all year round, it just make me happy!
Today I bring you a happy spring card... in reds, maroon and turquoise colours... I really love this colour combination!

The image is a new acquisition, a rubber stamp from Stamping Bella called "Lulu loves Poppies".
I really love Stamping Bella...  I would love to get all of their stamps! only if  I could...

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
