Spring ?

I've had this Stampendous stamp for a few years but not really done much with it, at the moment I've been playing about with the old technique of stamping with an acrylic block, never get two backgrounds the same. This made for a very simple card, just added touched of colour to the daffodils and matted onto green and yellow card. I had meant this to be an Easter card but can't find my Easter stamp!  As to my post title, well what can I say ? Saturday beautiful day , lots of washing dried outside, some tidying up in the garden, tried to clean the windows (not a success!) Yesterday, back to biting cold wind, frost last night and today , windy, cold and bucket loads of rain! Lots of challenges about for Spring so entering a few of them
