Just inklined to Hop in April

   Our theme is ...........
Bring in Spring
 chosen by our host for this month  Jeni  
Now you should have come to my blog from Debbie's

Here's the order of the hop again  for you

Be sure to pop by and say hello to everyone : )
So onto my card.....
Well it's not just a card it's a chocolate box 
(with no chocolates in it as I ate them on Mother's day I'm a sucker for a chocolate lol)
I've used the Flower Cross  image as its getting close to Easter and to me thats spring 
little newborn lambs, chicks and ducklings (dont they make you go all gooey inside)
Ohhhh and it makes me think of  CHOCOLATE

     Here's a close up of the image beautifully penned by Jim Harker.I love this image it is one of my favourites.As you can see I've gone with a bright orange along with the more subtle yellows and greens and its my first chocolate box template I have made I'm well chuffed (I really should challenge myself again with different templates as I do find them fun to make)
   Now I'm off to get a cuppa and a biccie while I can as Im scheduling this post and its really saturday afternoon and Ive been fighting with the oven trying to get it clean and having a debate with the washing machine and weather it will not rain today I need to get my washing dry lol.
  SO enjoy your monday I'm sure I will (not) as my list of jobs for next week is huge and I want to get things done before the kids break up so we can enjoy the Easter break as the new job starts after Easter and I doubt I will have time for the big jobs like decorating then. Now you  need to go to  Meesh's Blog now  she's got something fabulous for you to see

Goodies Used: Justinklined image Flower Cross,Copics e31-37, yooo-y16, g85,g21 I think lol, Papers  are from a stampeezee kit of the month basic grey, flowers wild orchid craft , creatable die,oval nestabilities, and a mcgill  leaf punch.
