It's Springtime!

Happy Spring, for it being the first day, here in lovely Holland, I awoke to the ground covered in snow and the temps hovering in the 40's. Drizzle this afternoon- but I'll take it as this weekend it is to warm up quite nicely!

A few weeks ago, I challenged my sister to make a card using some jewelry charms that I mailed to her. I sent her some birds and I bought keys. I cheated, though, and went back and bought some butterflies (of course, me being the frugal gal I am, tossed through the clearance aisle...).

Back to my story- so Kristen and I designed cards and today, presented them to each other. The fun part of this story, includes you! Create a Spring Card, post onto your blog, visit her at , Blankety Blank Blank , link your blog address and enter a comment on her page with her Bird Challenge. You will be entered in a prize drawing for some awesome blog candy (she even posted a shot of the fabulous stuff she is giving away!!). Her cards are gorgeous and would put a smile on someone's face as they opened the envie! So what say you- are you excited for Spring? Show us your fabulous creations!

Supplies: white cardstock, embossing tools for the basket weave, Martha Stewart pink satin ribbon, Martha Stewart pink paper, CTMH breeze cardstock, Martha Steward butterfly punch, pink cardstock, scallop scissors, michaels' pearls, CTMH stamps/sentiments, Heidi Grace pin, beads and Blue Moon Butterfly charm.
