Spring Joy

Well it looks like Spring might have actually arrived - at last ! I have been playing with my new Distress oxides, and after experimenting I ended up with a colourful background for this Spring Joy scene. 

I love Hares I don’t think I have ever actually seen one in the wild in person, but I adore them. I sat this darling hare by Hobbyart in his meadow, and stamped and fussy cut a flower stamp to keep him company. I love using dried flowers and items from nature, so of course they made up the meadow too. 

Some Hares were so full of Joy they jumped into the air over the meadow! I stamped my hares by Clarity Stamps which have always been a favourite of mine, but then when Lavinia Stamps released some similar hare stamps, I had to get them too! I wonder if there are any hare stamps I don’t have... no, no don’t tell me ... : )

 I stamped my assortment of hare stamps in a curve over the main hare, they look like they are having lots of fun! 

By the time I was finished it was much too large for a card, so I punched some holes in the top and hung it up with some pink raffia.

Thank you for visiting the hares today, have a lovely day.

I would like to enter  Spring Joy into the following challenges
