Think Spring!

Hi everyone,
Knowing how much I don't like winter and with this being only the first day I thought I would make a spring card. So here it is. I followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

This is an image from Great Impressions, I purchased at that little stamp store in my town last year. Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you I left a lot of white space and stamped my sentiment in black. LOL I just thought this is a refreshing change from all the Christmas cards I've been making. Not sure how I like right now, but I'm sure it will brighten someones day.
Who knows it could end up in your mailbox during a blizzard.
Gotta get to work. Tomorrow I work at 4 am so I will be missing in the morning. I try to get to everyone in the afternoon. I still have to make some tags for gifts and sew a kind of duffel bag for my grandson to keep his new Lego's in that Santa is bringing. Talk about last minute!
Have a very happy and safe holiday.

Terrific little "springy" card! Sorry you have a winter to endure but that's a good time to stay by the fireplace and play with paper!

Hi Colleen, I am ready for spring as soon as Christmas is over, lol, so I am right there with you. I love this! Those deckled rectangles are so wonderful as your frame and I love the flowers and floss down the side. I am so happy to see you at Sweet Sketch Wednesday again.
Merry Christmas my friend, hope your holiday is the best!

hugs, Patti SSW/DT

Hi Colleen, I love your card is bright and fresh and it is a nice change from Christmas cards that why I didn't make a Christmas card this week. I love your embellishments and what you have done with the string or twine it looks awesome. Great job and thanks for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck. Wishing your a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year from New Zealand.
