Spotlight Saturday!

Spring Has Sprung is the challenge that this week is running at the blog....
And what a stunning creations the team made! I love them so much....

And today it's almost summer here in the Netherlands... it's so sunny and warm at my balcony..
it's almost to hard to stay in all day. So I went up early to do some crafting and will be sitting outside for some sun. 
(tomorrow it will rain again)

How is the weather in your country... I know that we have a lot of girls following us from all over the world.. How is the weather in your country?

I talked about my village and that it has the biggest flower garden of Europe...
Well on request here are some photo's fromt that large garden..
Photos of the park  

And at the end of April we have a parade of wagons with theme's that are build up with flowers!
My DD and her scouting group make such a car each year! 
Then my village is filled with tourist from all over the world to see this...
And the fields around my village are filled with spring flowers. So I live in fantastic smells when we ride through the fields...


Now to get back to the Challenge... We so hope that you will join us this week....

  1. Wow, Marion what beautiful photos! It must be a real joy to live in such a beautiful part of the world. We have April showers here in the UK today, great crafting weather :-)

  2. GORGEOUS cards, everyone! And Marion - really, those pics are just breath-taking! My weather - ha! We woke up to a few inches of fresh snow yesterday here in Massachusetts - quite depressing. It should all melt today and tomorrow, though, as the temps should reach 50. Keep your fingers crossed for me. :)

  3. Wow such beautiful cards and all of your pictures are amazing. Just gorgeous!!

    The weather here in Michigan USA is cold and rainy today. Spring is here!!!


  4. OMG, Marion, your pictures are incredible! What a floral fantasy you have right in your backyard and your floral parade reminds me of the Tournament of Roses parade here in Pasadena CA on New Years Day, that is so awesome you have such a wonderful celebration each year to look foward to! Thank you for sharing it with us, its the perfect Spotlight Saturday to go with our Flower challenge this week! All of your cards are just lovely! Thank you, Marion and to all the girls for your beautiful flower creations and for inspiring us!

  5. Wow, those pictures are fabulous. I can't believe all the tulips, they're so lovely. The DT have done a fabulous job on their creations. TFS.

  6. Fantastic projects from everyone, and I love the photos of the garden and parade!
    Happy Summer! Spring just started here in California. It was cold and rainy last week, but this week is much sunnier. Have a great weekend!

  7. Wonderful photos, hope I can see that someday! =)
    It's been a rainy and grey day here in the north of Sweden today, still a lot of snow!
    Wonderful cards!
