Spring Yesterday

Hello to all my crafty pals and thank you for your lovely comments on my wee bit of crochet. It is strange what I can remember from a couple of decades ago and I cannot remember what I am doing, from the time I go from the bottom to the top of the stairs. Maybe it is an altitude thing telling me I should start looking for a bungalow, lol.  Yesterday was such a beautiful day and today we are back to the grey. 
Decoupage is not my forte but I had made this up and I thought it was a shame to waste my cutting. I also used my "contempo border" die. I have had it a while and I hadn't quite worked out what to use it on and it had slipped my mind until I saw one of your cards. Hopefully this card will encourage a bit more of spring, but I might take things a bit easier on our next spring day.

Paper and card - card blank is a 6 inch square from centura pearl ivory
and backing is  from stash,
Dies used – Memory Box Contempo Border &
part of the Butterfly Vine Border and,

  4. You are not alone on the memory think Flora, I always put it down to trying to think of too many things at once.

    Your pretty card can't but brighten any ones day, daffodils are always so bright and inviting.

  12. Flora love your card, spring I think we had it this past four days and now it's gone, back to dull grey skies again. Like you I often get through to the kitchen and think. " now what did I come in here for " never mind at least we are not the only ones like that.

    Sorry to tell you living in a Bungalow does not help the memory.

    Happy Crafting

    Oh, and as for age playing a part in forgetting things, rubbish - my 13, 15 and 17 year olds can completely forget what I've asked them to do by the time they've made it to the top of the stairs!!! Huge hugs, Jenny x
