Bearly Mine, Happy Birthday!

Good morning bloggers.  Oooh, it's been a bit nippy in these parts for the last couple of days - fingers crossed for a bit of warmer weather now that March is here!

And if you're feeling like getting in the mood for Springtime, look no further than Donna's latest fantabulous creations all with a Spring theme.    Oh my goodness, they are just DIVINE!!  And best of all, she's having a sale for just one week (ends 8th March) where you can buy all 3 sets for just £12!  I promise you will be drooling for evermore over these gorgeous papers.

And if you're feeling like you need to be challenged a little, what better place to begin with than the Bearly Mine Challenges blog where the theme this week is "Happy Birthday".  Nothing too difficult, but there are loads of fab goodies offered by our very generous sponsors to be won by some lucky ladies (and gents if you fancy playing along!!!).    The sponsors this week are:
Bearly Mine Designs  (2 sets of papers, winners choice)
Wild Orchid Crafts (selection of flowers and lace)
Tickled Pink Stamps (2 digis or 1 rubber stamp of winners choice)
Go Kreate (3 gorgeous rectangular dies worth £13.99 each)

Please go and check out our sponsors and see what other delish goodies they have to offer.

The uber-talented team have put together a bunch of scrummy samples to inspire you, but don't take my word for it, you need to see them for yourself!  This is the card I put together using a selection of the Gingham papers.  The beauty of these papers is that you can resize them before printing them out and I wanted 4 squares of  small gorgeous pastel colours to use as my background so was able to do this using my Word software.  The stamps are freebies from the cover of the new Simply Handmade mag - have you seen this?  OMG, it's brilliant.

Well that's my lot for today.  Hope you are having a nice relaxing time wherever you are and may March bring you lots of happiness and (hopefully!) sunshine!  See you soon.  :o) xx
