Yes today is the first day of Spring. Last week the weather was beautiful, my heart lifted and I was sure spring was here. Today it is 33 outside and the wind feels icy! But I am still glad that it is spring. The daffodils are blooming and many trees are flowering.
I just returned from Charlotte where Spring is a little closer. The Bradford pears are blooming and daffodils and crocus are everywhere.
As a child growing up in central Florida we didn't have daffodils, crocus and tulips and as a result I always have been fascinated by them. The first time I read "The Secret Garden" I was enchanted by the description of all the shoots of the spring flowers pushing up through the soil. I have loved spring flowers since then.
I also am in the mood to make spring cards, and Easter stuff although(as always) Easter is sneaking up on me again. I just love this new frog stamp set I got. It was a cheap no-name Easter set that I got on sale at Hobby Lobby but I just love the little frog. I painted him with markers and a water pen like AmyR did over at Prairie Paper and Ink
I am very happy with the card. The other two stamps were from the set and I used the same method with them.
This card is just a Springtime card with some new butterfly paper from the Paper Studio.
Hope you like looking at my stuff. I hope to be putting stuff on Etsy soon but it has been a long time since I tried that.
Have a Happy First Spring day and stay warm.
