Spring Has Spring


Loved this MFT sketch so decided to play along this week.  I found a scrap of this wonderful Pebbles paper and decided to use it to make a spring themed card as I can't wait for Spring  to arrive!!  Just planted primroses in the planter by my front door and my tulips are beginning to push through the ground so Spring is on my mind big time!

The paper has one of my favorite colour combos:  pink and green.  I'm still hooked on the Vintage Flower border punch by Martha Stewart and paired it with two of my other favorite addictions - lacy circle nesties and my beloved Verve Flutterby die.  Spring has definitely sprung in my craft room.  Now just need it to arrive outside :)

Off to teach Sunday School this morning and then we plan on having a relaxing day as a family.  Well..... maybe not all that relaxing as we can get pretty intense when it comes to certain Wii games, but good family fun none-the-less :)

Feeling better bit by bit too and for that I am extremely grateful!  Three week bugs and I don't get along very well LOL!

this has Spring written all over it!! Love those sweet butterflies too :) Sounds like you have a super fun day planned!! Most of mine will be calling the winning curling game...from my couch!! LOL and making a few cards :) That sounds like more fun than shredding old bills but I will have to do some of that too :)

Hi Marisa, so glad you're feeling better now. I can't wait for Spring either - it's my favourite time of year. Pink and green are also one of my favourite colour combos and your card is a perfect example of how wonderful it can look. Absolutely beautiful!
