Signs of Spring

Happy Sunday everyone! Hopefully you are seeing the true signs of Spring since yesterday was the first day of this wonderful season. As I look through the window from my craft grotto, all I see is snow, snow and more snow and a little ice thrown in for good measure!

Crummy weather just gave me another excuse to be inside coloring some Easter and Spring images.  If you've checked out challenges in the last few days most teams are thinking Spring and Easter. So, this card was made with a lot of those challenges in mind.

This is a darling image from Judith Stamps. I paper-pieced several parts of this little fellow and kept the colors very Spring-like.  In my opinion, it's not too gushy and perfect for a masculine Easter greeting. Agree?



I'm entering this into these challenges...

The Pink Elephant - Spring
Just Us Girls - Spring colors
Stampin for the Weekend - Easter
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Think Spring
All Sorts Challenge - Spring colors
Our Creative Corner - Easter
Crazy 4 Challenges - Spring

By the way... our obscure holiday today is Fragrance Day... so don't be a stinker.. just load up on that perfume you've been hoarding! Click on the link to read more about it.

Have a terrific Sunday wherever you are! I hope you aren't shovelling 6" of 'partly cloudy' like we are. Thanks so much for stopping by and 'til next time, be safe in all you do.

Barb said...

I love this image! Very cute! Your coloring and composition are very fun! I heard from my son in Leavenworth that you all had a whole lot of partly cloudy. Down here in the south we are still getting freezing rain and it is ccooooold! I've done so many "warm weather" cards I nearly broke into a sweat! Please be careful on the roads up there if it is still slick.

OMGosh Peggy - this is the cutest rabbit and card!!! LOVE the rabbit! We too have had warm (for us) weather the past week and most all of the snow is gone in the front yard - it will be awhile for the back yard yet. My little crocus are blooming and the sun is warm (part of the day) and we're loving it! Hugs, Dru
