*Is Spring Coming?"

The weather here in Calgary has been absolutely beautiful the last few days... and it's only getting better!  I think I may have to pull out the flip flops for Monday and Tuesday!

Tomorrow will either feel warmer or colder than it really is as I'll be outside working a bottle drive from 9:30am until mid to late afternoon.  At least it will be sunny and not below freezing.  And hey, it's an excuse to have a hotdog for lunch LOL!

I'm sharing with you today, one of the cards I made Wednesday night while the guys were at TaeKwon Do.  I really enjoy an empty house when I'm crafting.  Not sure why.
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery; Staples white
*Patterned Paper:  Creative Imaginations
*Tools:  Big Shot; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder
*Embellishments:  Prima Flowers; Stampin' Up! grosgrain ribbon; Doodlebug glittered brad
*Challenges:  Mojo129

I like how the card came together... I started with the sketch, decided on what patterned paper to use and then the card came together pretty easily.  Nice and spring-like!  Perfect for the weather we've been having!

Hi Nancy! Thanks for adding me to your blog list :-) You have a fabulous blog!

This card is very springlike, love the flower and the soft colours.

I'm the same, I really enjoy crafting as well when the family is out. :-)

Beautiful card Nancy - I love how you've used that huge flower as the central image for the sketch. I have such a hard time with that flower!!!!

I was on Debbie's blog (above me) and noticed your mentioning of your Canadian Bloggers list - I'd love to be added if you'll have me! I'm in Fort Saskatchewan outside of Edmonton.

It's overcast here today - the clouds don't look friendly.
Have a great day!
