Spring is coming!

Hi to all my blog Friends. I've been a bit busy over the last 6 months and wasn't getting much craft time in. I'm so happy to say I'm back. I missed visiting with all my crafty friends and sharing what we create. I missed dipping my fingers in inks and paints, sorting through papers and flowers for that prefect look. Scrapbooking has always been an outlet that has fed my soul and I'm loving the time I now have to get back into filling that void.

Let me start with sharing this card I've made. It's winter here in the Northwest and raining quite often which makes me long for warmer Spring days. I've pulled out a box of goodies collected over the years of little feathered birds, tiny plastic eggs, moss in 6 different types, twigs from my garden, leaves from the trees and many found feathers. These say "Spring" to me.
Using ink spray from Ranger in Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Picket Fence and one of my favorite Prima stamps with Butterflies I created the background. I added Prima flowers and two of those tiny plastic speckled eggs, along with a white fluffy feather. I then took a chipboard oval and covered in with paper and added the words "Enjoy Life", which is a wonderful saying to remember daily.

Please leave me a comment on what you look forward to in the Spring time.
Many hugs to you my friends,

Laurie

Hi Laurie, I love spring because everything is blooming. It's colorful and winter is over! Looking forward to getting outside and playing with my Grandbabies. Maybe taking a few card making classes or taking a nice walk. Love your card, especially the encouraging words!
