'Tis Tuesday - Wish Spring was here :-)

Hi everyone.  How are things with you.  We are in the midst of a winter storm here and 30cm to 40cm of snow by the end of the day.  Sure we have already had around 15cm.

Here's a couple of photo's. One was taken first thing this morning, the other was taken just now!  It's really chucking it down! Not supposed to end till later tonight too!

Snow day for the girls and craft day for me :-)

Anyways, I decided to have a little time in the craft room and make a spring like card.  I have once again used the older Polkadoodles collection All Around & Everywhere.

I have even used one of the fabulous Polkadoodles cut files.  This leafy background was cut at 6" using my Silhouette Cameo.  The Ivy 2 cutting file can be found HERE.

I inked all the edges of all the layers, including the inside ones.

There are some wonderful sentiment discs in this collection, I decided to use the I'm Sending a Hug, which was layered on some foam tape.

I made up the layered flower  (this is in the collection too) and added a little pearl dot to the centre and up onto some foam too.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Paper Play Sketches - Challenge #001 (closes 23 Feb)

Tuesday Throwdown - Challenge #281: Layer it Up (closes 22 Feb)

Crafty Girlz Challenge - February Anything Goes (closes 14 Mar)

Well, that's it from me today.  I have to go clear the path of snow, probably will need doing two or three times by the time the storm is over.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
