{Thinkin' Spring}

I hate winter...I don't like the cold, I don't like grey skies, I don't like bare trees. From the moment the winter equinox occurs, I'm counting the days until the first hints of spring. It's bitterly cold out today and tomorrow they say it's going to be around -1. Is it any wonder that I HAD to do a card that represents my desire to spring to arrive? For me, spring is symbolized by the arrival of Easter. When I received this adorable Bunny Girl Stamp by Lockart Stamps from Ellen Hutson, I was compelled to make something...anything with it. (as if doing an Easter card would actually bring warmer weather). I think I may have gone overboard on the polka dots, but here it is anyway. I didn't show the inside of the card, but it reads, "Now that's Eggciting" from the Best of Cluck stamp set.

This is cutesy adorable! I've been to MI once during April and it was a refreshing "cold" then tho there weren't any leaves on many of the trees, tulips were popping up everywhere and I fell in love with the Dogwood trees/flowers. I can see why you look forward to the freshness of spring. We don't experience the kinds of winters you have.

Stay well! I am so enjoying your blog!
