Spring is Here

The official date of spring on the calendar is March 20.  Living in Florida it's easy to forget the change of seasons.  We do have several flowering trees that bloom at various months and it's fun to see them.  One of the trees that's blooming right now is the yellow trumpet tree.


They grow very tall and are stunning in a yard.  Sometimes they are called the "messy tree" because when the flowers fall your entire yard will be yellow.

So, I've been in the mood lately to work on happy spring flower cards.


This was really simple to put together.  The background paper is the focus.  Such pretty colors.  I angled the stamped and colored image to mimic the geometric triangles.  Did you notice how the gold washi tape is also angled?  Little thoughts like that make a card design come together as a "masterpiece".


The cute bird and nest was easy to color with my markers and I LOVE the tiny heart in the word bubble.  I also added a yellow gold button with some washi tape looped through the holes.  Not my idea but one I took from another card.


I'm starting to accumulate a nice supply of hello and thinking of you cards.  So handy to have ready to pop into the mail.  I'd love for you to pop in tomorrow for another pretty card.
