Welcome baby!

Our first daffodil blooms are out in the garden. In early February! This world is going absolutely wacky. Will this mean the winter is not coming at all this year? Or will it mean it's still coming? I could do with an early spring for sure. I know February is too early to dream of spring, but I could really do with some sun and warm weather right about now. Is it just the UK who are having these unusual weather patterns or are you seeing the same where you live as well? 

I've had minimal crafting time this weekend due to work commitments.  But I wanted to create something for a bunch of challenges which are about to run out, so I managed to squeeze in a really quick crafting session this morning. Unfortunately the pictures came out with a blue hue to them, and I didn't get home until after dark, so no chance to re-take them so sorry about that!

I was inspired by the following challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches - sketch (see below)
Color Throwdown - colours (see below)
Lawnscaping - Sending Love - use hearts or love sentence
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Have a Heart 

Card: 300 gsm white card
Paper: Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh In the Snow, Let's Polka
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Critters in the Jungle, Love You Tons, Critters from Down Under
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Abandoned Coral
Other: Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies, Wink of Stella Glitter pen
