Think Spring

Hello well we are nearly into March and the light nights are creeping back in thank the lord..... great coming out of work on a night and it still been light ..whoooo
The Birds singing in the morning, my bulbs in the garden growing through nicely,  spring is on its way.
Sometimes i think people don't stop and enjoy their life as much as they should, been a little philosophic today, only when you know someone and their life is gone in an instant at the age of 24 you start to think a little more !!   don't put off today coz tomorrow may never come....

Sorry that's my little sad thought over with, 
OK now onto my card I'm sharing with you today for our CRAFTY CATZ challenge
Our theme this week is ANYTHING GOES but our twist is SPRING.
We  got to play with some fab images from our sponsor 
I used my corner dies from Tonic to create my card
and added a lovely organza ribbon from my stash

  Thanks for your visit today
Have a lovely safe weekend
