Spring Flowers

Okay so I am officially 'done with this crazy' winter! The lion-lamb thing with March is way too crazy. Tuesday is was 56 degrees...a beautiful lamb day....then Wednesday it was 19 degrees, the worst blizzard in 15 years and an accumulation of 20" of snow...now that's what I call a LION!Today is Thursday and it is 17 degrees! YUCK!!  No one ever told me that coming in like a lamb and going out like a lion could happen in a 48 hour span!

Today I was longing for "spring" so I sat down to play with some lovely spring-like flowers. My distress inks were still out so I decided to use them again for Virginia's View Challenge. The sketch at Freshly Made Sketches was just perfect for my floral image. All flowers have roots so....the cue card "roots" challenge at CASology was so appropriate. The challenge at Craft-Mojo was 'Spring Flowers'. Now that my friends is a win-win situation!



All stamps are from Flourishes. I particularly like the .. Love is patient, love is kind verse that is lightly stamped behind the 'Love' sentiment.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
