Pretty Little Ribbon Shop April Challenge - Spring Is In The Air!

Please Scroll Down For My April Flourishes BWT Post

Hello dear blogging friends, I hope you are all well. First of all, I would like to thank all of you who left me such kind messages on the loss of our sweet girl, Cookie. It meant so much to us.

I must apologise for being such a bad blogger, but I have had a few health issues and I'm still waiting for a scan.  I promise to visit you all ASAP.
Here is my April DT post for the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
This month our lovely Brenda has challenged us to make something with the theme of  'Spring Is In The Air'. So a nice easy challenge with lots of scope.
Here are my creations.....
For my card I used Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One and Les Papillons Two, with a little embossing. From the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop I used 15mm Pale Pink Satin Ribbon - Pink Cherry Blossom, Pearl Pin and Small Pearl Hearts.
My second creation is a hanger...
 
From the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop I used - Yellow Gingham Ruffled Ribbon -Yellow Sweetheart Blossoms - Cosmos DaisiesParrot Green Satin Leaf Trim - Butterfly Charm. I also used Spellbinders - Grand Decorative Ovals one, and Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval Template Die. My stamp is from Flourishes - Old Fashioned Florals and I coloured with ProMarkers. 
Please pop over to the blog and see the beautiful creations by my team mates. Then, why not join in with us for the chance of winning something pretty?
Sarah has a 'Spring Spectacular' Event running right now...so pop along and grab a bargain!
I would like to enter my hanger into the following challenge...
Both my cards into the following challenges...

Thank you for stopping by
Love, Sasha xx

Hello Sasha,

These two pieces of art are stunning as ever. And so different from each other. I like the softness of the first and the sunny appearance of the other.

I'm so glad to see you back creating Sasha. I was getting worried about you. I hope the health issues turn out to be something very small, and that you get feeling better very quickly.

I love both your creations, the first is so lacy and pretty, like a wedding dress, and the second is so bright and cheerful with the gingham ruffle and pretty flowers.

Feel better soon! hugs, Kathi
