Glorious New Day - FFFC #113 Spring Colours + Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello.  Happy Friday!

Today we're starting a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge and...it's also a Blog Hop.  The theme is 'Spring Colours' and is being hosted by the lovely Katharina.

This challenge/blog hop is being sponsored by the Fussy and Fancy Friday DT Girls--that includes me!-- which means that the gals will each be offering some kind of candy.  For me, I'm giving away my DT card to one random commenter on this posting, along with a few embellishments from my stash.  (I've just finished giving away my Blogoversary candy last month, so this time it's just a small wee one...tee hee.)

You may already be blog-hopping and have come here from the talented Vanessa's blog which means you're in the right track.  In case you're not and would like to start at the beginning--or if you got lost along the way--here's the list of participating DT gals in blog hop order:

Norma (you are here)

And now to get going with the blog hop...this is the card I created for this 'Spring Colours' Challenge.


This picture below is showing the hidden sentiments on the two removable tags.


One of the sentiments 'glorious new day' was a freebie from Create With TLC--thanks, Paulette!

To better put this card on display, I've made this into an easel card.



This adorable Tilda image being featured is from an older Magnolia stamp collection:


- Running Tilda from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011

Magnolia stamps can be found at Magnolia-licious on-line store, where Diana carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.

Challenges I am entering with this card:
Crafting At The Weekend Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge #81 - Tic Tac Toe (flower, pearls, diecuts)
Polkadoodles Challenge Week 17 - Springtime
Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge #93 - Lots of Layers

That's it for me.  Thanks for stopping by.  Your visit is always very much appreciated.  Now to continue on with the 'Spring Colours' Blog Hop, hop over and see what the-oh-ever-so-talented Celine has created.  Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!
