Hello Everybody!  

Are you feeling spring in the air yet?  It's Autumn where I live - which means it's about 2 degrees cooler than Summer!  And on the 23rd of June at precisely 6:45am Winter will kick in... for about 48 hours.  If we're lucky!

This week at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges, we have 2 super prizes up for grabs!

Prize TBA

will be giving away a $10 gift voucher to the store

I have a Polkadoodles image to show you today.  She is called Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime - Bunting and I have coloured her with markers.  Bunting has special meaning for me - and for all the members of my family!  I made miles and miles of bunting for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding a few years ago - which took place during our long 48 hour Winter season that year.  As family arrived from all over the world during the weeks prior to the wedding, I sat them down in my craft room and set them to work on it too.  We used it to cordon off certain areas of the wedding venue, lined the pathway the bride and groom would walk down, and decorated the reception area with it. 

Back to my card! 

My papers are from the Recollections Kaitlin pack.  I have used a Martha Stewart lacy punch, and a hand crocheted doily.  My flowers are Prima.  The lace is Simplicity.  The 2 hot air balloons are KaiserCraft.  I have sprayed them with white Gesso Spray.  The little white butterfly is Mont Marte.

To see what the rest of the Design Team have created with our fabulous sponsor images this week, head on back to Penny's.  To visit either of our fabulous sponsors this week, just click on their logos above.

Good Luck!
