May Flowers

May in New Zealand is late Autumn/early Winter, but in the Northern Hemisphere it is the start of Spring.  Over at Penny Black Saturday the challenge is to make a Spring Card.   I used  Mojo Monday sketch
May Flowers

I chose to use the square sketch.  I took some PP from a Rosie's Studio pack and trimmed to fit a square of dark blue card.  The paper already had the panel strip printed on it, so added the ribbon.  I stamped the cute Penny Black hedgie and coloured with distress inks.  Trimmed a spellbinders label for the bottom piece and distressed the edges.  Popped it onto the panel.  Added some yellow punched flowers and gems.  I am also entering this into The Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge ~ Cute and Fluffy

Had a lovely dinner out this evening.... went out with our friends to an Indian Restaurant owned by a guy who works in my office.  Had a great meal and a fun evening.  Topped off a great work day... we had an off-site planning day.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Dawn this is beautiful and so happy that you got to share it with us today. I just came back from a crop and all the talk was about Mojo Monday, a place I have never been really. Now you have inspired me to give it a look see and maybe try. Your hedgehog is super cute and love how he/she is laying on it's back looking up at the sky. I hope that we here in Canada will get the chance to do that soon as well. Hope that your autumn weather is treating you well and not to cold. Take care sweetie. Hugs.
