Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #18

Hi Everyone!!
It's Monday, so it's Heart Song Inspiration Challenge time!! ;)
This week it's  everyone's favourite... "Anything Goes"!

So bring on your fun, happy, quirky, crazy, pretty, sweet, cute, vintage, shabby best!!! Use any colour, paper, image, glitter, ribbon, bling, lace, or doo-dad that takes your fancy and get creating!! You don't have to use a Heart Song image (but of course we would love you to!). You could win two images of your choice from the Heart Song Designs store!

Now, I know you are all in the Northern Hemisphere and in the middle of Autumn... but I'm taking this opportunity of "Anything Goes" to celebrate the fact that Spring Has Sprung here where I live! ;) Everything is looking just gorgeous - the sky is blue, the sun is shining, and our newly created garden is starting to look... well... like a garden!! ;) Our hard work is paying off and the blossom, flowers, and fresh green growth is just lovely to see! There's still LOTS to do, but it feels so good to see progress!

One of the first pretty splashes of colour in our garden are the bulbs. I LOVE tulips, and as a tribute to our garden this week I'm using Leah's "Lovely Tulips" image!

And from the side...

Thanks for visiting and I hope you can play along with us at Heart Song Inspirations this week!
