Where Is Spring?

Bonjour! It's Monday.... blurgh! It's cold and cloudy but the weather man promises sunshine and blue skies later this afternoon. Yeah right! In the meantime, here are a couple of projects I made over the weekend to cheer me up - both packed with spring florals.

First up is my idea of a spring morning... birds, blooms blue skies... the works. I'm using Lawn Fawn goodies, distress inks and Copics and Stickles. Subtle shimmer just wasn't good enough. I'm needing full-blown bling to lift my spirits these days. This cards is for:
Lawnscaping Challenge #127: Beautiful Florals
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: April Showers Bring May Flowers




For my next project I shoved a bunch of (leftover) tulips into an upturned umbrella and voila! A tag for Tag You're It Challenge #44 was born, inspired by NancyPenir's flowers-in-umbrella idea. I snipped off the tulips from LF Flower Border. The brolly, sentiment and tag are by Clearly Besotted. Also linking to Dream Valley Challenges #129: AG



That's all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!
