Spring is in the air!

Doesn't it make you feel soooooo good when Spring is here? My forget-me-nots have begun to blossom and I know from past experience that by the end of this week I will have a beautiful blue carpet across my front garden and I'm so looking forward to it!

Yesterday we got back from a fabulous holiday in Woolacombe - the weather has been so perfect and I feel completely chilled! Definitely not in the mood to return to work tomorrow :o(

Anyway as I've been away I haven't been able to post my tags from last weeks Tag You're It! and Sweet Pea Stampers themes on my blog, so here they are:
This is my Tag You're It! tag - the theme was "I can see clearly now" and the idea was to use acetate on your tag. Now, I cannot lie, I really struggle with acetate. I never seem to manage to do anything useful with it, but I was really pleased with this tag.
By sheer coincidence, the theme on Sweet Pea Stampers was also to use acetate on your project, so as I had the bit between my teeth, I made a second tag:

I have used this week's Tag, You're It! theme, as the perfect excuse to re-open my Magnolia's Only blog because I have re-discovered my love of the stamps and have begun to use them a lot more again lately, largely due to the fantastic inspiration from some of those lovely Magnolia DT members and bloggers out there.

Well that's my lot for the moment - I have a stack of stuff to blog but I won't bore you with it all in one go! LOL!! Have a great week and I hope you're enjoying the sun! Thanks so much for stopping by, and if you would like to stop by my Magnolias Only blog, I'd really appreciate that too! :o) xx
