Another Spring Card

Hi, everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Hubby and I are relaxing around the house. The weather is beautiful, so the windows are open, and the birds are singing so pretty outside my window! I love it! I just hope this weather trend continues here. To show my love of the season, I put together this card.

This is Hamlet PigWit Think Spring. This is the Stamp of the Month Set at From the Heart Digital Art Stamps.  You may remember my card from a couple days ago....well, this is the free set I received for entering the challenge with that card! If you have this stamp, or purchase it, and enter a card using the image in their SOTM Challenge, then next month you will receive the Stamp of the Month Set for FREE! I just love how that works!

I colored in this adorable little critter, then added some Stickles Star Dust to the flowers and butterfly for some sparkle. I cut my sentiment from a Silhouette file with my Portrait, and added a tiny daisy, punched with a Marvy punch, to the letter 'i'. The center of that is colored with marker. The strips of dp are from my scrap box. I cut the bumpy border using Spellbinders On The Edge Borders die. Pretty CAS, but I like how he turned out. he'll mail well (he's an A2 size, and pretty flat), and I think he's on the way to some of my friends in MI: they just informed me that they have another, fresh 4" more of snow from last nights storm that came through their area. While I feel terrible for their long winter, I am so glad I don't have to deal with that! Yuck!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll leave a comment so I know you came by to visit!
Happy Crafting!
