Jump For Joy


Well i hope, all Mums were spoilt rotten on Sunday ?? - my darling 5 year old told me on Saturday that he and and daddy had been to Sainsbury's and bought me some chocolates that started with 'R' (and proceeded to do his phonics impression of the letter R!!), then at 6am on Sunday morning a card, the said chocolates and the Military Wives ( or Miniature Wives or Midwives, as it's been named by 5 year old !!!) were thrown at me, whilst i was still asleep !!!

I noticed there were a few 'Green' and 'Spring' challenges around and to start with i was stumped, till i remembered i had a sample pack of 'First Edition - Hideaway papers' and they suited the challenges perfectly. The image was one i had from a swap, added some yellow brads and punched flowers, as i wanted to match the daisy colours.

The Card and Challenges are :

Sweet Stampin  - where the Challenge is to 'Use Lots Of Green'

Penny Black At Allsorts - where March's Challenge is 'Springtime'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'A Bit O' Green'

Penny Black Saturday - where Challenge No: 193 is 'This, That And The Other'

Crazy 4 Challenges  - where Challenge 'C4C128' is 'Show Us Some Green Somewhere'

Totally Gorjuss - where Challenge No: 123 is 'Spring'

Image - Penny Black - 'Jump For Joy'
Sentiment - Penny Black - 'Happy Birthday'
Papers - First Edition - 'Hideaway'
Flowers - Fiskars punch
Brads from stash

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
