Ahhhh.....Spring (well, almost)




Good Afternoon.....It's Tuesday, the sun is shining, and I am starting to feel better(thank God)! Although it is still pretty chilly here (approx 45 degrees)I am starting to see signs of spring. The trees are forming buds, the tulips and Daffodils are sprouting, and the birds are chirping. It has been a REALLY long winter and I am going to embrace every single sign of spring with open arms. I can't wait to open the windows and pack away the winter coats. Oh, I can't wait!!!

Today's card was made for Mary Jo's lunchtime sketch challenge. Easter is approaching and I really want to use my New High Hopes bunnies, so I flipped the sketch to fit the bunny (rather large image). I am having a great time coloring these new High Hopes stamps.


I used some stickles on the ribbon for a little extra something, I also photographed it separately with hopes you could see it. For some reason sparkle doesn't show up so well in pictures or scans. I have found if you turn the card just right you can catch the right lighting and snap away. Can you see it??????

Don't forget that today is the last day of SU INKS& MORE sneak peeks. Head on over to their blog and check out the samples. They are FANTASTIC! All stamps will be available for purchase tomorrow. Have a great Day and Happy Crafting!!!!

SUPPLIES
Stamps: High Hopes, AMUSE sentiment
Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle
