Happy Squirrely Spring

Hello and Welcome!

After breaking all kinds of records here in Minnesota for the most snow and cold temperatures in April, we are finally seeing signs of spring! Hooray! To celebrate I made this fun spring time card:

I combined some of my favorite crafting companies to create this card. The squirrel is from Pink & Main's Happy Fall stamp set and was colored with Zig Clean Color markers. The pretty flowers and sprigs are Poppystamps' Stitched Bloom Trio  and Small Leafy Sprig die cuts. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps' Coffee Helps set.

All of the papers and white chipboard are by Quick Quotes. I also edged all the elements with Quick Quotes' PowderPuff Chalking Inks. To sparkle things up, gold gems were added.

This card is entered in:
  • Pink & Main Challenge #29 "Spring"
  • PCS#43 "Framed" at Poppy Stamps

Happy spring everyone!
