spring anyone?

Just a few more days. 5 to be exact until Spring is officially here! The east coast has had some of the wackiest weather ever! We had our 5 nor'easter of the year, this one dumped 3 inches of rain over 2 days and it is STILL raining! I guess I have to be thankful it isn't snow! Yes, we had enough of that this year.

During a recent outing to wally mart, I found these clearance cake stickers- quite 3 dimensional and fell in love with the colors. This time of year, we have a number of birthdays and I always find that I am short on cards. So, 3 stickers got me 3 cards. Here are 2 of them. You will have to come back on thursday to see the last one- it is for the Charisma Cardz Challenge....and no it is NOT birthday themed. LOL! no cheating.....!

This card is for the sketch challenge over at 2 sketches 4 you. It has been forever since I participated on this site and since the end of January since I did any other challenges other than Unscripted Sketches and Charisma Cardz. I am telling ya, this time of year is C R A Z Y!!! So, used paper I rec'd ages ago from Taylored Expressions (I think they are a mix of MME, DCWV), CTMH sentiment and lots of 3d foam to pop up each layer.
This card is for the challenge over at The Pink Elephant. Week #58- Anything Spring! The background paper reminds me of dogwood trees in bloom and the color palette is definitely spring!
