Is it Summer yet??

Brrrr....  Judging by the look of my car, I would say not!  It's so confusing for the wildlife - I've woke up listening to birds singing, but not as excitedly as they normally would.  My daffodils popped their beautiful golden heads out, only to be beaten back down again by snow and I am just desperate to get into my garden and make a start on getting it ready for the summer, but that wind is so cold, even in the sunshine!  Maybe next week?

In the meantime I shall have to content myself with indoor projects.  I have a few ideas of things that I want to get on and do, but first I want to show you the tag that I made for this week's Midweek Magnolia theme which is "How Charming", and we are asking you to use a charm somewhere on your project.  The girls have been busying away like mad to create some amazing inspirational samples which I urge you to go and check out for yourself.  Here is my offering:

The papers I used are WAY off the mark for me - I don't recall ever using mint before, but they work so beautifully.  They were a sample that a friend sent to me many years ago and I've just never got round to using them because they're not my usual taste.  I've always thought they were gorgeous, but a little too 'modern' for me, but I decided that they would be perfect for this tag, and they are so Spring-like and cheery.  Unfortunately, I've covered all the beautiful birds that lie underneath the image - the paper normally looks like this

Beautiful, isn't it?

I'm sharing my project today with themes over at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia as they have the theme Butterflies or things that flutter and with Marvellous Magnolia who's theme is Wings(my charm and the invisible birds on my paper!) and with You, Me and Magnolia who have a Spring theme.

And that's my lot for today.  I'm off to meet a friend for coffee soon which I have been looking forward to for the last week!  Hope you're having a good week wherever you are, and thank you for stopping by! :o) xxx
