I'm ready for Spring!

Really, every card I make these days has clouds, trees, grass, etc. I've never been so excited about mulch. Really, I can't wait to work in the yard.

I just wanted to show you this card I made. I really like how it turned out. Hope you all aren't sick of the trees and green! And I got to break out my You're Dandy set to make rays out of VersaMark. I just love VersaMark on Kraft cardstock.

Stamp: You're Dandy (Practicing Creativity), New Beginnings (Unity Stamp Co.)
Ink: Onyx Black (Versa Fine), Watermark Ink (VersaMark)
Cardstock: Kraft, Old Olive (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Refresh from Origins Collection (Basic Grey); New Apron from Cherry Hill Collection (October Afternoon)
Ribbon: Black Satin (May Arts)
Letters: Tiny Alpha White Black (Making Memories)

This is so cute! Loving those trees, and that cool background stamp!!

I hear you on wanting to work in the yard! I am ready for full-on spring weather! We have started growing strawberries inside, and take them out when it is warm enough. We want to grow a small garden this year too. We are total novices, but I imagine with Google and some common sense we can do it! Tee hee! Have a great Sunday!
