Arty Girlz- Spring & Another Recent Layout

This weeks' Arty Girlz theme is spring. I really wanted to play along but got home late from work wet through. By the time I ws dried off the light was fading so I made just a quick spring-like card with the gorgeous BG Lilykate paper some prima flowers & decorated brads. I finished it off with a Stamp It up Greeting.

I published this earlier this morning & decided to add the card to the post as they are both on the same day. didn't think it would work but it proved me wrong!!
The recent Layout

Another recent layout using old photos. (1987) All paper is 7Gypsies. Off cuts from part sheets no longer wanted by members of my team. Stickers I got from CraftsULove. I did hand stitching on this one as my machine is still broken.
