hello Spring!




More creativity inspired by Penny Black's Sweet Spring 2018 release.  



It is officially Spring!   so what do you say the only "white stuff" in our lives sticks to being on cards! ok? : ) I am counting the days until warmer weather and long bike rides!!

I hope spring has sprung in your part of the world!! Maybe we should make March "Hug a Flower" month! giggles.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says: Floral Frenzy challenge! the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the Just Us Girls challenge. You really must check out the galleries for these challenges! Spring may be sluggish in showing itself but you would never know that by the cards emerging in blogland!

Edited to add the honor of having been selected the Chic of the week by Just Us Girls!! : ) 









Thank you for stopping by! I will see you again on Monday.

Supplies used:

Flower Flourish #51-421

Leaf Pattern #51-432

Perfect Pairing #30-346

Flower Tags #51-124


BIG (((HUGS)))

Oh Patti, how delicate and lovely this is! I love that leafy die cut panel on the background and those flowers are colored with just the right amount of color. Just perfect! Spring is slow to come here in Maine too. I'm so glad to be seeing some color in blog land.

Hello, Patti! Your card is so beautiful! I love the gorgeous white-one-white look of the background you made with the die-cut. Your flowers are so pretty! Yes, I am ready for spring myself - we just had about a foot of snow the other day! It's nearly all gone already, thanks to the sun!

Your card is so very lovely with the die cut panel behind those gorgeous blooms! I agree, March should definitely be "Hug a Flower" month as all of us in the Northern Hemisphere anxiously await warmer weather and the glory of Spring. Big congrats on winning Chic of the Week at Just Us Girls!!
