Challenge #24 ~ 'SPRING'

This week's challenge is 'Spring' so we are looking forward to seeing your creations whether they are based on the 'Season' or maybe you'll choose to do a spring card or use a spring in a topper or something Altered etc...it's entirely up to you as always, we love to see all the different ways that people interpret our themes.

We have the lovely Debbie as our Guest Designer this week. Here is Debbie's beautiful creation followed by a short Bio from the lady herself ~ You can check out Debbie's blog HERE

Hi, my name is Debbie and I’m a 34-year old craft addict! By day I work in IT Compliance and Security for a Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices company and by night I live in my beautiful home with two gorgeous Chihuahuas. I have been crafting for 8 years now. A lady at work got me into it and took me to the Hobbycraft show at the NEC – and all I could think was – stamping images in black and colouring them in would not look that great – how wrong I was! Once the possibilities became evident to me, it opened up a whole new world in my creativity. What started as making a few cards for friends and family became a big part of my life (and took over an entire room in my house)! I am lucky to be a member of a couple of great forums and then I found blog land. I have learnt more in the past year than I have in the last 7! I also write poetry so that makes card inserts a doddle, and I love to scrapbook and alter things too. I wouldn’t say I have a particular style as such as I love to try new things all the time. But when I find something I love I tend to stick to it for a while before moving on. Arty Girlz is an extremely inspiring challenge blog so I hope you will join in the fun! Happy Creating! Debbie xx

I think I've cheated a bit as mine is really for Easter, but it does have a little chick and an egg, and they're sort of spring like.


Big wet kisses to Julie and Crissi!
