Happy Spring!

OK, maybe I am just a tad early...  but with a few days of unseasonably warm weather in the Bluegrass, I just had to sing!  I so love this time of year.  The grass starts to turn green, trees wake from their slumber and my daffodils are peeking out of the ground.  Even the Saints are shedding...  a SURE sign that spring is around the corner...  lol...
 
Speaking of spring, if you haven't had a chance to check out Our Daily Bread Designs' March collection, you are missing out!  There are two sets this month...  baking sets and spring sets.  And this month Our Daily Bread Designs'  will celebrate their 5th anniversary too!  Look for exciting challenges and all around fun this coming week! 
 
In the meantime, let me show you a fun card using the Happy Spring set.  I stamped the image on kraft paper and colored each of the Pussy Willows with a white pencil. 
 
 
and a picture of the stamp set...
 
 
I see robin's egg blue in my future...  until next time...  blessings...

Beautiful card! Love the layout and how you colored the pussy willow. I may have to pick up this stamp set!

I laughed when I read your statement regarding the Saints shedding. Our three cats and Saint are also in full shed mode...the vacuum is working overtime at our home!

Thanks for another inspirational card. Have a great week! :)

I just love the natural colors on this wonderful card, Lori. I have always loved pussy willows; even though they're not the most beautiful flower, there's something about them that reminds me of my childhood. What a fabulous card, and thank you so much for sharing this in our challenge this week. Hope that you are doing well, and that you're having a blessed week.

Stamping the image on kraft seems to make it even more springy.
