Is it Spring yet?

Around here, we've had more than our share of rain lately.  We're talking alot. One day it rained so hard and the wind chimed in and anything that wasn't bolted to the ground went flying away.  Even if it was "planted" well, it ended up falling over.  Don't get me wrong, as long as I don't have to go out in the mini monsoon, I love it.  Once you put me out in the middle of it....I don't like it so much. 

The good news is, with all the rain, and me not wanting to go out in it, I've been able to make some really cute cards to give me just a bit of spring fever.

This one I made for a friend of mine who just got married.  It's not even close to what I had decided I was going to do, but I think it turned out even better than I planned.  I really like it. A lot.
This is a good card to make again but just change the colors to match the wedding colors. I think I just made my life a whole lot easier!

In honor of no rain this past weekend, I made this card of fresh picked flowers--well maybe I should clarify and say fresh-picked paper flowers.  Paper flowers are the best kind, they don't die.  This card also makes a nice little accent piece, since it sits up in it's little pocket:
Did you notice my Noah's Ark basket in the background? These pocket cards are so fun to make, and did I mention super easy?  You can change the theme of the pocket to whatever suits your fancy.  Wouldn't easter eggs look cute in there?  I think I now what my next card will be!

So, here's looking forward to Spring and lots of fun new spring cards to brighten someone's day!
