Spring Green

Good evening, Blog Friends!
Just did a quick CAS card tonight while enjoying a thunder storm! A lovely Spring rain, but the weatherman did say tonight that we are supposed to have SNOW again soon!
Oh well, its just the adventure of living in Michigan!

The ribbon is a 1/8" black satin, the ink is Memento black and the cardstock is BoBunny.

Challenges: - March Anything Goes w/handmade bow - #224-5 Anything Goes

Think Spring!

Happy Spring!
We have had some lovely warm weather the past couple weeks, but I'm afraid it is "back to reality" today! Cold, gray, rainy...with a possible snow or ice storm tonight! Ahhh, Michigan! Gotta love it!
So my card looks like Spring has arrived anyway! I love to use spring green and lavender together...always makes me think of lilacs! They are definitely a Spring flower!
I made this card for a friend who has a wonderful online craft store: and the leaf stamps* I used are soon to be included in a big Sale she's having. Oh, and the "Color Me" flowers too! The bow was made using my Craft-dee Bows bowmaker.
 Here is the list of what I used in creating this card:

Stamps: *Inkadinkado "Fossil Leaves" (fussy-cut)
Dies: Spellbinders "Valiant Honor", "Fleur de Lis Squares"
Inks: TH Distress "Peeled Paint", Stampabilities "Lime Green"
Flowers: StampingScrapping "Color Me- White"
Cardstock, ribbon & glass beads are from my stash

Challenges I'm entering this card in: - #222-3 Anything Goes - March Anything Goes - #137 Welcome Spring - #38 Think Green - March Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today!

Spring Is In the Air!

Yes, Spring IS in the air! Especially today...the sun is shining and most of the snow has melted and even the mud has calmed down a bit! I took my car through the carwash today and it stayed clean all the way home...even on our gravel road! The neighbor children have been gleefully romping through the woods and the neighborhood. Its great to hear their happy voices again!
The children on my card are gleefully dancing together...I think it is because they, too, are so glad that Spring has arrived!
