Spring Hanging but where is Spring?

I'll be away braving the snow, visiting my family in Germany for a week, so I am not joining in with WOYWW this time round as I probably won't be able to pay many visits (but I will try to nosey in on as many as I can).
In the mean time here's another of my samples from Saturday from the Easter Egg-Stravaganza.
It's a really easy way to make a seasonal hanging and use up some of those offcuts of background cards you have created. It's just a shame that the Season doesn't know it should be bright and cheery by now!
The backgrounds were made using a variety of Distress ink pads and Dylusions Sprays, sponged and stencilled. I particularly like the birds die cut from random areas of the decorated card.

Do hop over to LillyBo Quilts to see the latest makes and don't miss the chance of blog candy with a prize for stitchers as well as followers (and you don't have to have made a quilt to join in). If you pop in now and then to see the progress of the Super Star Stitchers, why not join as a follower.
