The Crafty Pad Challenge - British Summer time

Good Morning (Afternoon)!!! I am still on 11.30 am and the real time is 12.30 am. I forgot that it is now officially British Summer Time and the clocks should have gone forward by one hour.
Duh!!! I'm not having a senior moment! I've been stuck in the house now since Wednesday with this horrible flu virus and have lost all track of day and time.

What I want to know is where did spring go, we haven't seen it yet, never mind Summer time?.

This week over at The Crafty Pad Challenge we have based our theme this week on that subject along with it being Palm Sunday too. We would like you to use the colours of
Green,Yellow and Orange in your creation. The prize this week is a 1 week guest designer spot and you will be using the same image as the DT.

I've made 4 simple napkin holders for my project this week, staring off with the inner tube of kitchen paper. Cut it into 4 equal sections and decorate as you wish. It's that simple. I used MS double sided lacy doily punch to give them a nice finish, and of course Debbie's beautiful butterfly to give them some dimension. These will actually be used next Sunday as my Son & DIL Theresa will be coming to me for Easter lunch. I will be making a decoration using the same colours and butterfly for the centre of the table. I'll post it on when I've finished it.

Hoping you all have a wonderful Sunday, thanks for popping by.

Hugs Suzi xx
