Need Some Spring?

Well I don't know about you, but I could use some Spring Inspiration here in Wisconsin, especially after a major blizzard on Thursday, and now back to freezing cold temperatures yesterday and today. Ugh! This has been one of the longest, and COLDEST winters I can remember. Its really hard to believe the global warming warnings when you experience a winter like this!
So in honor of Spring-time thoughts, I will be posting a Spring-themed card today. My card was made for three different challenges. I used the SC215 Sketch Challenge and the CC205 Color Challenge from Splitcoaststampers. The Spring theme is for the Crafty Secrets Challenge on Paper Craft Planet: we were to make a Spring Card using our Crafty Secrets Stamps.
The image is from Crafty Secrets 'Bird Notes'. It was colored using prisma colored pencils and gamosol. I sponged the edges with 'Pretty in Pink' ink. The sentiment is from Kolette Hall. Card stock colors are White, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, and Kiwi Kiss. I mounted both the main image panel and the Kiwi Kiss panel up on dimensionals. The white panel was embossed with the 'Swiss Dots' Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug. The Kiwi Kiss panel was also embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder. Ribbon was added for embellishment.
I hope your warmer than I am wherever you are. As usual, my hands are cold and numb as I type this because my office is the coldest room in the house. I've begged my husband for a small space heater, but he's afraid I'll leave it on after I leave the room, so he won't let me get one. I have no idea why he thinks I'd be that irresponsible to do that, cause thats just not something I'd ever do. I think he just doesn't want pay for it and is creating that excuse! LOL! Amy


  1. I really like this bird image. It goes great with the color combo.

  2. Amy, this is wonderful! I definitely need some spring -- I love these beautiful colors!

  3. Great job on this card Amy!! LOve the colors and of course the image is colored perfectly!
    I told my DH I wanted a space heater for in my craftroom and he said the same thing ... my response was "too late, I already bought it and it works fine!" LOL!
