I Spy........

Not been doing much crafting this week as I've been trying to get some work done in the garden most days, the last few days have been really sunny although its still cold out of the sun.  My usual annual fight with celandines ,know I'll never completely eradicate them but have to try and keep the numbers down. Could not believe there are already greenfly on one of my clematis, must remember to go and spray them tomorrow. usually try first of all with soapy water but if that doesn't work its out with the bug spray!   Last night I did manage a little play with my oxide ink pads, for some reason I forget to get a yellow one so as I was ordering that I thought I might as well have the others I don't have ,just waiting for them to arrive now, always think a bit of yellow lifts things. Anyhow this is my first play with my new Indigo Blu stamps( another  birthday present), do love the flower stamps in the set. The butterflies looked a bit dull so I added a bit of wink of stella, wasn't too impressed with that so added some glamour dust glitter as well.  I'd like to enter my card into
