Mega Spring Cardmaking weekend...

Hi there all...
Are you all chocced out? 
We've still got loads left in this house. Almost been too busy to sit and eat them.
I took my eldest daughter up to the O2 to see One Direction on Tuesday. We had a great time on Oxford Street shopping before hand too.
I'm now clearing out bedrooms as same daughter had a new bed and we're giving her double to youngest daughter.
So we're going the whole hog and re-decorating too.
New bedlinen, curtains and new colour on the walls.
A bit more of a grown up look...

So onto some cards and a little while ago a friend gave me an unwanted paper and embellishment set that was given to her daughter from a recent cardmaking magazine...
so I set about one Saturday to a mega craft session...

In progress..bit of a mess!
I added ribbon and made tags with sentiments...
Used some flowers and my leaf punch...

and here's the end result on Sunday afternoon.
About 20 cards made...some of which are going to back to my friend!
I may show a few of these close up in the future...
Here's one for you now...

I love this blue/pink/lime combo and the birdcages and butterflies!

Some challenges...
