Is it Spring, Yet?

It's almost Valentine's Day. I should be making red shiny heart cards. Instead, I'm dreaming of tulips and flowers and trying to pretend there isn't 5 feet of snow outside the door. I'm needing Spring cards!!

In my bid to use up all premade cards, I opened this pack of 2 cards and envelopes. They are from Colorbok, and were Joanns very first $1.00 items I think. Eons ago!
SEI paper, from half an eon ago. My 2009 goal was to make my images match my paper, and I think I am getting much better at it!
That's a Hero Arts stamp, colored with Copics and Prisma markers. Watercolor crayons for the grass and sky, and 2 Colorbok flowers that match the cards.

Here's the boy version, using a Lockhart stamp. SET ribbon that matches the paper, with a weensy piece of SU 1/4 inch grosgrain tied into the bow.

Such sweet baby cards! Great goal of yours to 'use what I have'. I really like the flower buggy card. And yes we need spring. Late spring! When flowers are blooming and the hummingbirds are back.

I know what you mean, Beth. Except, I don't have 5 feet of snow out my front door. The snow from last night is already melted. But, I still long for Spring and 75 degree weather. Your cards make me think of that, and now I'm happy!
