Whimsy Spring Baby

Happy Tuesday everyone! I'm all excited today as I only have 2 days left of work before having a week off. Woo-hoo! I'm scheduling in some crafting, some clothes shopping, some eating, some crafting, some craft shopping and some more eating.... You get the idea!
Today I've got a wonderful Whimsy image to share with you! Our stupendously talented illustrator, Crissy Armstrong, has excelled herself again with this gorgeously clever carousel horse. Don't you just love the way the little foal nestles in against her Mum? Too cute!

I've realised lately that I am ridiculously predictable with colour. I always go for pinks and greens and yellows and turquoises..... Note to self: be more adventurous with colour!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Proud Mamma by Whimsy Stamps.
Paper: Doodlebug.
Copic Colours: C1, C3, C5, C7, E31, E33, E35, E37, R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG63, YG67, Y17, Y21.
Tools & Embellishments: Card candy.

I'm also entering this card in to a few challenges.....

Simon Says Stamp - Easter or Spring with Some Glimmer
Although you can't see it from this picture, there is actually glitter on the white frilly bit around the saddle. And I used some sparkly Core'dinations Gemstone cardstock too.

One Stop Crafts - Feeling Fruity 
I went for colour scheme rather than edible stuff, obviously!

Charisma Cardz - Spring Has Sprung

Stamp Something - Doodling

I hope everyone is enjoying the week and that you are all looking forward to that fabulous bank holiday weekend!
