Longing for spring!

Boy, am I ready for spring to arrive. Today as Kati and I went to the grocery store, chunks of ice were melting off the trees from our ice storm the other day, and it was almost like it was hailing out! So weird. Our driveway is still a very thick sheet of ice. I just can't wait for the fresh, warm breezes, birds chirping, flowers blooming, opportunity for photos again (of course!)...and well..all of it. Spring and summer are my favorite seasons.

Speaking of spring, here are the cards I promised. Love these fresh colors! These are from Treasured Scrapbooking's Feb. card kit featuring Fancy Pants "Botanical" papers. I believe there are only 2 left, so if you really, really want one, snag it soon here!



The Sweet Spring to U card below was made for the new on-line Bella Magazine. It's a hybrid card made with the Spring Sherbet kit from Jennifer Layden of Jennilyn Designs and Holley VanDenBerg. I enlarged a digital element from the kit (flower), changed it to white, added the pink background and word "sweet" from the digital kit, and then printed it out on a piece of white cardstock and folded for the card base. I cut around the flower shape with scalloped scissors. Added American Crafts pink foam letters and rub on letters, Making Memories ribbon, and a button. The butterfly was a digital element as well and was printed out and added for extra dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a nice weekend! ~Danielle~
