Spring Has Sprung

Happy Wednesday

I apologise for my absence, things at home have been pretty grim over the last couple of weeks, my wonderful little boy Gandalf passed away suddenly, and it has knocked me for six, on top of that my loving DH bought home a lovely head cold from school that I am still trying to shake. 

This is my gorgeous baby at Christmas, the last photo I have of him

He was a constant companion in my craft room and it has been very lonely in there of late.

So now back to craftiness! 

This week over at Creative Moments the wonderful Design Team have pulled out all the stops. As always it is Anything Goes, and the optional twist this time is Spring has Sprung.

My second card uses Melonheadz  Season Spring Bundle
