Having a January birthday when you live on the West Coast of Canada means there is a veeeery good chance you will get showered with looots of rain on your birthday LOL! So, I decided to celebrate by giving myself a breath of Spring :)
I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from a few weeks ago -- I can never seem to get my cards made in time for her sketches lately! The large circle in the sketch immediately brought SU's Season of Friendship set to mind. It's a perfect match to my not so subconscious wish for Spring and all the wonderful cherry blossoms we get around here, especially after all the snow and rain we've been having lately - ugh!
In addition, I want to give this card to all of you who so faithfully come to visit me in my little part of blogland. I treasure the wonderful friendships I have made through this blog and only wish I could meet you all in person! Thanks for being my encouragement and inspiring me to keep stamping (((hugs))).
The rest of the Design Team has some great inspiration to get you going on this week's sketch.
In addition, each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog. We'd love to see your card featured, so come and join us this week :)
I'm off to a family dinner at my mom's tonite (chicken and dumplings with a sour cream and caraway sauce - yummy!!) and my favorite cake for dessert. Needless to say, I"ll definitely be doing the Nordic Track or Tae Bo tomorrow LOL! Hoping the stamping fairy will be good to me :)
Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for sharing my birthday with me!
