Dancing flowers and girls

Hello, it's Friday already and the weather is feeling pretty March like...windy but some great sunshine and awesome extra day light. Thank you all so much for the amazing comments and support you have given me re my new Design Team work for Visible Image. It's such an exciting journey for me.

I wanted to share some recent photos from a day out I had with my DD and Daisy. We visited Hillier Gardens in Southampton and wow what a beautiful spot it is.
There were drifts of snowdrops, cyclamen and hellebores everywhere

 My little sweetheart took her toy camera and bent down to take photos just like Nanna 😂

Daisy took her Teeny Tiny Tears with her (yes mine from the 1960s!)
a bit of dancing
and nappy changing...Teeny Tiny Tears certainly looks good for 50 doesn't she!
Daisy loves her.
Today's card is a very girlie spring one. The stamps are more from the awesome new Visible Image release.
I made my own music paper from sheet music. The stamps are from the Born to Perform set and the sentiment is from the Own it! set

This is not one of the samples I made for the show...for my samples I chose to work with the Stay Curious Cat and Face It sets.  If you missed my Billy the cat inspired sample post do have a peep here..all very exciting. 

 I would like to enter my spring dancer card into the following challenges;

The Artistic Stamper Springtime
Ribbon Girl any image
In the Pink For a special lady mine is for my darling Daisy.
Memory Box Ribbons my oval is a MB stitched oval die cut.
Addicted to stamps and More anything goes
Dies R Us something new my new is my brand new Born to Perform Visible Image stamp set.
Fussy and Fancy 1/3 anything goes
Crafty Catz 1/3 anything goes
Creative corner 1/3 girlie fun
WOW Spring the ballet dancer has been clear embossed , fussy cut out and the ribbon wound round her.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember that the new Visible Image stamp release is on Create and Craft TV at 10 am tomorrow (Sat 4 March. Channel 23 Freeview, Virgin 748, Sky 674 or you can watch on line here.  Mark will be doing some awesome  live demos.  The show is also available to watch on line for 7 days after it has aired. I have my recorder set and I will wave if I spot any of my Cat or Face It cards over there there.

Back soon,

Have a lovely weekend,

Bye for now,
