Spring Forward....PPA84.....


Drawing inspiration from the beautiful Easter bonnet at Pals Paper Arts today, I picked some of the brightest colors I could find hoping to convince Old Man Winter to let go here in the Northeast!  Using Ice Cream Parlor DSP, the sentiment from Easter Blossoms and the flower from Sweet Summer I think I covered all bases.  And the colors?  Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Melon Mambo - not a winter word anywhere!

Hi Linda! I've been missing your blog! I just checked the last week or so and I see snow, green, shamrocks and now THIS beauty! Loving the spring feel. Of course, I hate to tell you it was 85 here today! Hoping Spring is coming your way in a BIG way, soon!

Gorgeous! Love the bright colors and is that the bottom half of the cupcake punch to make the flower pot? Cute idea~! TFS I live in Arizona; and our weather is great now. I used to live in Chicago, so I do NOT miss all that cold weather. I hope yours improves really soon!

Beautiful card and colors...to welcome spring! I'm ready for Old Man Winter to go away for a long time! I just realized about an hour ago that we "Spring Forward" this weekend. Love the little flower pot!

I love the DP papers that you used they are so cheerful looking. I love that you popped out the little pot that you made for the flower. What a great idea!
