Is it spring yet?
Hi! I don't know about you, but every year about this time I start wishing for spring. Not the occasional sunny cool day, but REAL spring where I can put my winter coat away for long term storage! It doesn't help that our winter weather started later than normal and seems intent on hanging around a bit more... So I decided that if I couldn't see spring flowers outdoors, I would make them indoors.
I made both of these on a chilly, wintry, snow day and I have to admit that it did make me feel a bit warmer! Circle of Spring was one of those stamp sets that I couldn't wait to order, so I hate to admit that this is the first time I've actually used the wreath and bow images. I also pulled out some really retired dsp called Tea Party. As a matter of fact, I had to dig in my retired supplies to find the markers and base paper to match it!
I used patterned paper to make the brick wall. I wanted to use something other than plain cardstock, and I think the subtle floral pattern made an interesting background. The jury is still out on the polka dots...
I hope that no matter what the weather (or season) you are having, you will be inspired to create something that makes you feel better too! Have a wonderful week!
