Ready for Spring

Now with Valentines Day behind me, I am ready for Spring.  But because our neck of the woods is not ready yet, I am going to head south to warmer, sunnier weather for a few days. Yes, tomorrow I will be flying off to see one of my daughters and her family so there will be no blogs posts til the end of next week. And since it has been almost a week since my last post, I thought I better get something up today (which turned out to be this evening because I had two of my precious grandchildren here for the past 36 hours.   
I made nine cards Thursday, using up some scraps and some of  my "to be used later" images.  All of the cards are going to OWH.  Speaking of OWH, I found the perfect Priority box.  It holds, comfortably, 40 A2 cards.  It is 9 1/4 by 6 1/4 by 2 1/2.
I used to use boxes from Paper Zone but now with no PZ store, I have been  using Priority envelops.   This box was not in the display rack at my post office but I was talking to the person that was helping me about how I wish there was a box so I didn't have to try to cram the cards into an envelop.  She picked up this box from behind the counter and said "Like this?"   Perfect.
So it is filled and my DH has instructions to mail it Tuesday while I am gone.

Now, back to the cards I made.
I love this bear by Designed2Delight.  I printed out the scene on white and then printed the bear on textured brown cardstock by GKD, cut him out and popped him onto the grass which I colored with pencils.  On a couple cards I added a "think of you" or "missing you" sentiment but on some I just left off any sentiment .

The sketch is The Craft's Meow
The flowers are felt cut out with a Cuttlebug die.
Do any of your recognize the BG paper.  It is as old as the hills Stampin Up paper. 

Some challenges:

Hope you are having a great 3-4 day weekend.  See you next week after I get back.
