Has Spring Spung.......or what???

Hi Crafters,

When I got up this morning and it was snowing. I can't believe it... just as I was getting used to warmer weather to.......
Oh well that's what you get with the British weather I suppose.  Also as I  was looking out my window this morning I noticed one solitary little snowdrop in the garden,  I thought they grew in clumps. Maybe I'll get some more come up next year.

Talking of snowdrops. I made this card today after visiting the Less is more blog site, to see what the subject is for their next challenge is, which, as it happens is Spring.

Chrissie has created a beautiful card with digi stamped snowdrops. Her card gave me the inspiration for my card.
I don't have a stamp with snowdrops on, so I thought about making some, using a punch.

So here is my card.....





















Phew it was difficult getting a half way decent photo of this card, I don't know why cos I wasn't doing anything different. Any way with a bit of perseverance, and a bit of jiggory pockory with old computer, I got one in the end....

When I first started  making cards I was useless at stamping. So I used punches instead and found I was much happier with the results.
I just love the 3D effects you can get with them. 
I hope you like it, and that it fits into the clean and simple/ less is more challenge.

Here is a little close up of the snowdrops.....

Well that's all for now, thank you for visiting. See you again soon with another card.

This is so clever and so pretty Sue. A real breath of Spring.
I've often found that if you photograph a mainly white card against a very dark (black) background, the camera doesn't seem to get so much indigestion and does a better job!
Thanks for joining us yet again and see you next week!
