Little shoots

Hi it has been a busy week but I still got time to commune with and admire Mother Nature in my garden. I was delighted to see that in a gap between my viola in one of my pots there is the tip of one of my bulbs poking through ( bottom of the photo)
 I even found a couple of pots of daffs I never got round to putting in last year, despite being ignored  all year, have decided to sprout
 as has another pot tucked under some bushes.
Isn't it amazing how robust bulbs are. Despite being totally ignored they are "doing their thing!" Such a wonderful sight to see.

My card today is one I have made for Dotty's Teahouse using my Lavinia stamps. The hares are new, I won them in a challenge last November and they are so cute. I made the background using distress inks and the stamping is all in Versafine Clair. I gold embossed the little stars. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

  9. Oh Jane, this is absolutely beautiful! I adore those dear little hares - and the embossed gold stars just pull everything together perfectly.

    Isn't nature wonderful. I had a dental appointment this morning and drove there (first time driving the car since my tangled feet incident). It was a joy to see the outside world away from home and I can't wait until it's Spring and we can take Dudley out for some pleasant walks together.
