Ah, Spring...

Spring has


arrived here.

It makes me so happy!! I've had the windows open at my desk at school the last couple of days, and the best part is that I can finally start wearing skirts and dresses. I pretty much live in them when it's above 60* out, and it's been in the 70's the last several days! Yay!

These cards, made a few weeks ago and accidentally forgotten about, are the epitome of spring to me. Bright, cheerful pink, pretty kelly green, bright white, florals. I used my new Avery Elle set: Petals and Stems. Such a pretty floral set. Kinda reminds me of Rosie Posie, but definitely has a different feel to it. I also used a new set (new to me, anyway) from Market Street Stamps: Cane Print Background. I thought the clean feel of this stamp would be the perfect complement to the floral stamps. Jelly Bean Green from MFT and PTI's Stamper's Select White were my only card stock colors used, and I allowed my new ink from Close To My Heart to shine with the florals.

I did have to fussy cut the florals, which took a little time, but if there were dies for Petals and Stems, these cards probably would have come together in less than a half hour.

Thanks for dropping by! I'll try not to let such a lapse go between posts next time. :) I've been a little busy the last few weeks.
