Is There Really a Spring Out There?

Is there really a spring out there? Canada's east coast is being hit with a huge snow storm as I write this, and just the other day it was lightly snowing outside my own door. Now rumour has it we can expect snow this June. Tell me they're not serious!

With spring approaching, I created a spring-like card. Personally, I'm tired of the look of my cards and am trying so hard to have a different look. When I hear, "Beth, your cards look like you" I cringe. Am I that predictable? Yah, thought so.

These cuties were stamped and coloured when I got together with Michigan Shackies from the Stamp Shack. If you haven't checked us out, what are you waiting for? We love new members. Irishchristine was busy working on 32 first communion invitations, Kimmy was making miniature 3-D flowers, Jennifer was trying her first quilling, Kathy was stamping like a mad woman (thanks for the brownies), and I was busy colouring these images. We try to get together every four to six weeks. Lots of fun and laughter for sure!

Stamp: Magenta; Paper Cool Caribbean, Pixie Pink; Prismacolour pencil crayons and OMS.

Hugs,
Beth

Your card is so pretty! I love all the colors. It's funny because I was just thinking the same thing about my creations.

I can totally relate to your feelings. . .I'm getting tired of my own stuff. I think it's a compliment that people say your cards look like you. . .your cards are beautiful so that means you are beautiful too!
