So, Spring has sprung and we are now into British summertime, brrr! Hope you all remembered to change your clocks.  Not so hard to remember nowadays with mobile phones automatically moving the time over for you, but I know in the past, when the boys were little I was caught pretty and couldn't understand why Corrie wasn't on at it's usual 7.30pm - so it took me till then before I noticed! Oops

Anyway, back to the latest challenge over at Ooh La La and this time it's Michelle in the driving seat, and she has chosen
Spring/ Easter 

as our theme, and as I'm doing a Birthday card I chose lovely tulips, they are a Spring flower right??? Hmm, will have to check that actually cause that's us into Summer and still no tulips, so forgive me if my gardeners world facts are not quite accurate!

My card today uses a gorgeous Shawn Jenkins art set again from his lovely Collection CD.  All that was added was a ribbon, pearly flower and sentiment.

Beautiful card Janice - the colours are gorgeous.
I remember my cousin once put the clocks forward when they should have gone back and had to wait outside work for two hours until someone arrived to unlock - she was well annoyed when she found out what she did and has text or phoned me every year since to make sure she does it right :o)
Hope life is being kind to you and yours.
Have a wonderful day.

Hi Janice
Looks very Springy to me with the fabulous tulips and despite the clock thing, I always think of Spring lasting until May.

Oh this is beautiful. I have tulips in my garden right now, but not as pretty as these ones. So yes, tulips are spring flowers here.
