Spring has sprung

Good morning blogworld,

So what exciting bit of news can I impart today, then?  Well pretty much nothing really - apart from I should. hopefully (as I'm scheduling this), currently be at the swimming pool with SHMbO and g'dad - not that g'dad is going swimming you understand you don't do that at 89 or so I'm told!

The pool was chosen for today's trip out as SHMbO has recently moved up into Stage 3 ASA swimming and wants to go to the pool and show off her moves.  Of course whether g'dad will even be able to see her what with him sitting up in the spectators gallery and us in the pool is debatable - but still she wants to go and so off we trot.

Anyway the real reason I'm here is to show my very Clean and Simple card for the new challenge over at Papertake Weekly for which the theme this week is 'Spring has sprung' - so Spring colours required please.  As always there is a fabulous prize on offer and the DT inspiration projects are wonderful.

So here is mine:

(hmmm I never seem to do an Arty Farty anymore - will have to try harder!):

I used:
The Greeting Farm - Miss Anya collection
coloured with Copics

Ummm not entirely sure - it's a scrap, I will try and find out

C.C. Designs - umbrella

Anything else?
Paper string and chipboard embellishment from my stuff

Right folks, I will let you know how the swimming went when next I'm here.
