Who Is Ready For Spring?

So many flowers and leaves budding and opening.  I love Spring and yet get impatient for more flowers, more color.  I'm sure there are others who feel the same way.  I made a card that might brighten some one's day even if it is cloudy or rainy.  We had a lovely February and so far March but we in the Pacific NW know that just when we get to thinking that this is the way it should be, we get a few months of drizzle and/or rain.
I went back through some of my old digital images and sentiments and found these.  After coloring the image with Copics, I added buttons, tying a bit of Baker's Twine from the Kraft Outlet onto each button.  The beautiful Hand Stained Bias Tape is also from the Kraft Outlet.  The die cut behind the sentiment is one I haven't used for years.  It is a Spellbinder and it was fun to have the same shape as the flowers in the digital image.
Speaking of the Kraft Outlet, their challenge blog, the Kraft Journal, has a new challenge beginning today - Anything Spring.  Apparently I am not the only one anxious for Spring!  We would love to see your cards depicting Spring.  Enter by Sunday 6 pm Central.
Hope this card brightened your day.

  3. This is so cute...I love that you incorporated a variety of colored buttons. It adds to the happy feel of this card. We are so blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week. We started a new Challenge today and will be delighted for you to come back and link up once more. Leaving you with this encouraging Word of God in Romans 15:4 and it says, "For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." Have a great week.
