SPRING!

Heart 2 Heart is doing their first ever blog bunny hop in which we have to create something with an Easter or Spring theme. This got me thinking about what spring looks like to me...

I have yet to branch out into making creations other than cards and scrapbook pages at this point so I am sticking with another card. It even has a pretty simple layout but it was what came to mind when I thought of the sunshine making all the flowers grow.

The Beatles get credit for helping me with the theme of this card. Whenever I think of spring, I think of their song, Here Comes The Sun, and it gives me something warm and wonderful to look forward to. To me, this card represents the bright sun and blue skies of a fresh spring morning when the blooms are out and one has the whole day (hopefully - I do live in BC...) of sunshine to look forward to.


All products are Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted.
Paper: Mayberry and some random scraps that I have had forever and are probably not CTMH
Cardstock: Colonial White, Olive, Smoothie, and the blue is from a paper pack that is so old I have no idea what it is even called.
Ink: Goldrush, Olive
Stamps: True Happiness, Spring Up
Embellishments: White Daisy Flowers, chipboard, brads, Button, Kraft Borders
Ribbon as usual from my long-time stash that is not CTMH

Side notes: The quote was hand-written (probably one of the hardest things I did on this card) and I hope to never cut out that grass from the True Happiness set ever again, haha.

Hope you enjoy this card and I hope you feel like spring is on the way! Thanks for stopping by. Cheers.
