Spring has SPRUNG! :) and a couple of challenges

HEY- Over at the Stampotique blog .........................................................

Gez is our hostess for this weeks challenge and here is what she has challenged us with:

"With warmer days just around the corner I thought it would be great to try and encourage a little sunshine into our lives and onto our blogs by creating whatever you wish using nice bright spring colours, flowers or wildlife.. something to lift all our spirits and tell Mother Nature we are ready! I know I am!!"

Remember it is Stampotique only and you will have until April 10th to enter for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps to our random winner.
 I NEEDED desparately to use "carrot" again!  lol  I really am crazy about him and he reminds me of Spring, ok?

He is stamped on a tag and colored with copics.  The other tags I had hanging out here in my art room begging to be used.  The thread is shiny tho you cant see it well here and I crinkled the ribbon with my heat gun.  He looks ready for Spring to me!  I would also like to submit in for the following challenges : 
Catered crop= stitching on your project
Fab n Funky challenge: Easter :)
Raise the Bar 97 : "In the Garden"
tfl!

Love the layering on this card, it looks fab. And I love carrot too - he's my fave!

Very fun card! Love the dotted scalloped edge (it's a perpetual favourite of mine), as well as the pretty white bow (so airy and light, like the return of spring itself).

Thank you very much for your wonderfully kind comment on my outfit post yesterday, dear Jane. I really appreciate it.

Oodles of hugs & joyful Thursday wishes,
♥ Jessica
