Welcome Spring

Ok so who knows first aid? I was stung by a wasp tonight while trying to remove dead flowers off one of my vireya bushes, ouch that hurt! My first thought was to use baking soda and vinegar, I was partly on the right track it should have been a paste of baking soda and water. Whatever it seems to have helped along with the ice although there is swelling there. Don't think I'll have any lasting effects thank goodness.

I have just finished this in time for the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge which is to make a Welcome Spring card. Love these Cosmo Cricket papers so much so that I need to buy some more, lovely and vibrant colours for a spring card. Can you spy my new wee flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts they only arrived this morning. I used Distress Ink Scattered Straw to add a touch of colour.

This card fits the bill for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge the theme is Recycled. The gold ribbon has in a previous life been on a Christmas present, that's the best I could come up with.

Gorgeous hun! Wish I was that hedgie relaxing in the sunshine. Your flowers are lovely - really like those. Sorry about the wasp sting sweetie, ouch - vinegar was the first thing that came to mind but maybe that's for something else. Hope it feels better soon. Hugs, Sxx

I hope we do get weather nice enought to sit outside at some stage during Spring/Summer.

Hopefully your wasp sting is cleared up and OK now.

Thank you for sharing with Penny Black at Allsorts this month.
