Happy Spring!

Another beautiful day is upon us here in Massachusetts!  We noticed, upon arriving home yesterday, that yet another bush in front of the house burst into bloom over the course of the work day!  That's kind of crazy and way fun, if you ask me...brown in the morning when you leave and then FULL of flowers when you get home! HA!  I hope the cooler temps coming next week don't kill them all!

I received a fun bag of random stamps from Unity yesterday so I decided to use a couple of those for a quick FWF Friday card celebrating Spring!


Happy Spring



I used the Happy Spring sentiment from the Spring set.  I just colored the words with watercolor crayons, spritzed them, and then stamped them so I would only have the words and not the frame for this one.  Love that!  The little scene is from ...well, I have no idea what set it is from.  I've searched the site and come up with precisely nothing, so...if you happen to know what set it is from, I'd LOVE to hear it!  LOL!  It's colored with watercolor crayons/pencils and mounted on DCWV chalkboard cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders die.


Happy Spring (detail)



That gorgeous ribbon is, of course, May Arts.  So...there you have it.  I little card to celebrate spring!  I know some areas aren't seeing the fabulous weather quite yet, but I'm sure you will soon!  It's coming, my friends!  Unless you live in Australia or New Zealand, which I know a couple of you do....I'm sorry to say that you are looking forward to fall/winter.  But..hopefully it's a good one!

I also wanted to mention that I have a fun Home Decor project up on the Scrapbook Circle blog today!  I'd love for you to stop by and check it out!

  21. I was just out surfing the web and came up on your blog... so glad I found it. Your cards are adorable and so original. I agree about the wonders of spring weather and spring blooms. All it really takes is a couple warm sunny days this time of the year and our landscape turns from brown to vibrant. You have so many followers that me joining your journey will just be a little drip in the bucket, but I'm just going to drop right in as # 1250.
