Where Have You Been?...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo


I have been pining for Spring. It actually snowed again yesterday! Lucky for me, it's springtime at the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop. Today I used a cool sketch from my fellow Baker's Dozen DT member, Sankari Wegman, and I broke out some bright, fun colors to make a happy card. I used one of my favorite sets, Tweet Hearts, and created the tree by turning the branch on it's side. All the fun papers are from the TE Spring Project Pantry kit...oh, Spring, where have you been?

BEAN NOTES

  • Stamps: Tweet Hearts, Garden Party Critters (butterfly), and A Year of Sweet Sentiments (Taylored Expressions)
  • Cardstock: Textured Bazzil from Spring Project Pantry (TE); Solar White (Neenah); Rose Red (Stampin' Up!)
