Where is Spring???

Hello everyone and welcome!! Well here we are, the 3rd of April, it's meant to be Spring, but here in Edinburgh it's just another grey and drizzly day.....
If you are in a part of the world, where Spring is hiding still, I made a tag, full of flowers as a reminder, some day, they will hopefully appear.
Here is a sneak peek

If you want to see more and how I put this together, please head over to the  Calicocraft blog.

Hope you like it and maybe you are lucky enough to have some sunshine where you are......

Your tag is stunning as always Astrid, and I´m sure, it would look even better in sunshine, which I´m sooo lucky to have here in Denmark today. But it´ll look gorgeous anywhere with all the beauty you´ve added to it, I´m sure. It´s really gorgeous work as usual hun.
Hope you´ll get some sun later in the day too.

I'm with you Astrid no spring where I am. I fact we still have lots of snow and it snowed last nigh. Ugh...

I had to giggle, I'm not a sweet flowery crafter either and yet I have flowers all over my project yesterday. Maybe that's why we add flowers? Great addition of the rusty heart, hardens it up. It's beautiful!

Maryanne said...

Well, not much spring here yet so your tag is very welcome, Astrid!! I really love it and I love the rusty heart to take away some of the sweetness. I have several rusty ornaments tucked into my flower beds in my gardens so that's what your heart reminded me of! Lovely tag!

Susanna said...

Beautiful tag! Thank you for sharing so beautiful freebies on this blog. I have printed some of them and made some little tags from those, because I understood that those are free for everyone´s own use. Thank you so much! I posted them in my blog if you want to check out: http://kristallihelmi.blogspot.fi/2014/04/pienen-rasian-koristelua.html

Spring is out there it's been here since January when our local spring flowers were blooming, it was so odd...

We have magnolias, daffodils and more flowers blooming, just not too warm weather from the wind & rain. Been a freaky year so far...

BEAUTIFUL Tag, stunning flowers, great colours. Edinburgh is a beautiful place to live, you are a very lucky lady:-) xxx

Margaret Mifsud said...

Just had a look at your tag and it is delightful!! Love the colour and love that crackle finish on the flourishes. Beautiful work as always Astrid!! ox

Hope spring will come soon in Edinburgh, too. Here in Germany spring has already sprung.
Have just taken a look over at Calico - your tag looks wonderful, love the torn edges and the wire arond the heart.

Jools Robertson said...

Hope you have some spring sunshine now, iwe have and all the Daisy's are smiling

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
