Spring has sprung at Polkadoodles

I'm the hostess at Polka Doodles this week.
My challenge
The Spring has sprung
seemed appropriate to me especially
with this fab new hare that Nikky has created
as part of the Alice stamp set/cd paper set.

As you can see my hare
is running a little late!
Pop by Polka Doodles for a look
at all the wonderful creations from the
team at Polka Doodles in our

It shows how well Polka Doodles
products work alongside our favourite
rubber stamp companies.
