Spring Is In The Air At 'Chocolate, Coffee & Cards"

Happy April Fools Day!!!!!

Well, yesterday was my last post for the 
Dies R Us Inspiration blog as a DT member,
but today I have some exciting news as it is my first post

I think I will have lots of fun with the girls there
using mostly digital sponsor images....
speaking of which,
the sponsor for this weeks challenge is Bugaboo Stamps
and the challenge theme is
'Spring Is In The Air'

Bugaboo Stamps

I have used Bugaboo stamps in the past and they are so
adorable, cute and pretty fast to color!
I chose  Spring Elephant 1 to color with my Copics.

I had recently been to Michael's and they were having a sale
on 12 x 12 single sheets of paper, which I normally don't buy
but I saw this cute little lady bug paper and picked it up...
couldn't have been any more perfect for my image!

I added little bits of details to the image,
Wink of Stella pen, a few gems, sequins, dots and a tiny twine bow.

To finish I added a pretty bow using Really Reasonable Ribbon 
and a lady bug button.

Now pop on over  to the
and see what the other DT girls have will see 'total' cuteness there!

Entering the following challenges:
