As snow continues to fall over the realm, despite spring being a mere three days away, people have grown increasingly frustrated. This tends to happen this time of year. It is rather disheartening to watch a foot of snow fall when just two weeks ago the lanes were beginning to melt and dry up. To temper my own displeasure with the weather I decided to retreat to the crafting chambers and make something cheery that reminded me of spring.
created this shaped card using the Birthday Bash cartridge. I embossed
the brown piece with my Cuttlebug and a Tim Holtz embossing folder. The
sunflowers I cut using the “Just Because” Cards cartridge. I cut out
“mom” using the Rock Princess cartridge and then embossed that as well,
earning me +381 texturization exp points. I added some Adage tickets and
a piece of yellow ribbon tied in a bow to complete the front.
the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday
Crazy” set. I added a butterfly from the 7 Gypsies “Steampunk” set and
that other random shape from a nameless cheapo clear set I have kicking
around the crafting chambers.
This card will “spring” into the following challenges:

Mother’s Day is still two months away, it did lift my spirits to create
a springtime card and pretend that outside there was green grass and
flowers blossoming rather than the frozen, white wasteland that awaits
