Calendar Challenge No 3 White/Yellow/Green

Another week, another challenge, I needed to get this one out of the way as I have guests here this weekend and must sort out the housework.  I would rather be crafting that changing beds!!

White, yellow and green made me think of Spring so I picked March when the bulbs come up.  Didn't have a daffodil stamp so used a tulip.  The hare stamp was a freeby with Craft Stamper, I have used it on some cards for men and thought of "Mad March Hares" for the calendar.
For this page I used Lyra aquacolour crayons, I scribbled the colours onto a stamp block, spritzed with water and stamped it onto watercolour card then stamped the tulip in brown.  Thought I would add some more tulips and the hares.  Going with the Spring theme I put the date on the calendar for the first day of Spring, the words Spring Has Sprung and Mad March Hares came as an afterthought.

20th March first day of Spring next year
We know Spring is here when the bulbs start to come up

Will try get on line to look at the Craft Barn Blog later this week to see all the lovely calendar pages entered for the callenge.

Lovely spring-like page I thought of tulips too (as I didn't have any daffodil stamps either).
