Spring Has Sprung at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope your week has got off to a good start.
Thanks for all the best wishes for the Craft Fayre I did at the weekend - I was thrilled by how well it went - sold much more than I had anticipated. It was a long day but well worth it :o)
Then we had Jamie and Rowena's engagement party in the evening - but we didn't stay too long as we were bringing Ruby Mae back to sleepover at ours. After Jamie came to pick her up I just crashed out for the rest of the day!!!
Yesterday was spent putting my little crafty haven back into order and making two cards that were ordered at the Crafty Fayre - then Aaron, Kerry and Oliver came for tea - a scrummy roast chicken dinner :o)

So today seems to be the first day things are 'back to normal' on the blogging front :o) and I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and this week the theme is 

so any project using Spring Colours is what we are looking for.

Here's what I did:

I am loving making some Home Decor items at the moment :o)
I will have a few more items to share with you later this week - they sold well at the Craft Fayre and I have a regular monthly Craft Market stall starting at the end of this month so I hope to make (and sell) a few more.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and to see the full details of the prize on offer from our fabulous sponsor this week:

Thanks for calling in on me today - it is always great to see you here and love to read any comments you may wish to leave.

Have a fabulous day.
