JOY OF SETS BLOG HOP MARCH 2020 #JOSBLOGHOP

We are celebrating Spring in all its forms on our Joy of Sets Blog Hop this month.  March is a busy time for me with both my children having been born in March 11 days apart and my daughter's partner also has his birthday nestled inbetween.  Add to that that it's Mother's Day in the UK on the 22nd March which just also happens to be my son's birthday and it's a busy time indeed. Sadly since I wrote this we have also had a death in the family with my mother in law dying suddenly.  At age of 94 it was a grand age but sadly she never got to meet her great granddaughter.

Today I have chosen to do some spring Tags - maybe even to go on some Easter Eggs come Easter time.




The first one has been sponged with TIm Holtz Distress Inks in pastel spring colours.  The writing has been stamped from Stampin Up's Background Bits.  The ephemera is from Tim Holtz as are the die cut snow drops.  The eggs are from Pink Ink Stamps.  The bird is from Stampin Up.





The second tag has slightly different colours - also first sponged with Distress Inks.  The feathers are from Stampin UP Feather Together.  The birds have been cut from SU DSP Bird Ballad.  The nest is from Pink Ink stamps as are the eggs.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft.

I'm adding my tags into the Craft Stamper Challenge - Anything Goes
