Spring is on its way!!

I had fun playing with some distress ink and the Poppy stamp from Hero Arts today, This card is for the current challenge over at Die Cut Divas "In the garden"  I was inspired to get out my flower dies as I think Spring has arrived in our neck of the woods and all the flowers and trees are coming to life.
I am also entering it in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Happy Birthday".

I spotted these lovely Primroses on my walk yesterday a sure sign that the warmer weather is coming.

I love these pretty yellow flowers.

I thought I wouls also show you another of my painting projects, we have had this old dark wood coffee table for years and it definitely needed updating.  I sanded down the top and applied some Danish oil, the grain really looks fantastic and it was hidden under all that dark wood stain!

I then painted it in Annie Sloan chalk paint, my fav new product, so easy to use!!  No piece of furniture is safe in my house now lol!!

Fab card - perfect for the challenge. Love the bright cheery color.

AND I love your table. You need to come get the old table I have out in my garage. The poor thing was out on the patio for some time.

I had so much fun visiting today.

So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.
