Happy Spring

Earlier this morning I was outside to get the morning paper and imagine this: 6 am, the sun is UP, I didn’t freeze to death, I heard birds sing and the beautiful sound of pouring WATER. Do you know what this mean, folks??? It’s SPRING! Wohooo! I’ve had this silly smile on my face ever since!

And that did, of course, call for the making of a spring card. This is what I did this morning.

Happy Spring

Papers: Bazzill, Webster’s pages.
Stamps: Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps 
Ink: Memento
Decos: Ribbon, Spellbinders nestabilities, QK circle cookie cutters.

I used the oh so fab sketch of the week over at OCC. Check it out! Today’s challenge over at 365 cards is making noise (!). And the gorgeous inspiration card by Heidi made me want to make a shaker card. It was quite some time since I last did one. Don’t know why, they are really cool! Making noise and having secrets to be revealed!

I hope you all will have a lovely Saturday, and I hope you come back tomorrow, when it’s time for a new Super Sketchy Sunday with 365 cards.

Tesa, this is just beautiful. When I went out to get the paper this morning the sun was not out and it was cold. We even had frost on the ground. Definitely not spring like weather today.
