Spring is in the air!

Ok, so I know, the title is not that original. Sorry about that. Although I'm setting this post to come up on Monday, it's really Sunday night and I am beat. I have no brain power left to come up with a clever title. It's been a LONG weekend. A great one, but LONG and BUSY. Isn't it kind of cool how you can schedule posts on blogger, though? It's like time travel!

Anyhow, you probably don't want to hear me prattle on about soccer games, cleaning, shopping, creating, and all of the other things that composed a rather mundane weekend, so I'll just go ahead and show you my card for the Belles n' Whistles challenge. This time around, we're focusing on spring!

This little cutie is one Elisabeth's designs for Sweet Pea Stamps. I stamped her off on kraft paper from Gina K, then colored her up with copics. The DP is from Graphic 45. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The metal tab is Making Memories, the little bracket journaling block is Maya Road, and the cameo is from Webster's Pages. I snagged the ribbon off of a gift bag. Pearls are Kaiser Kraft. I think the felt butterfly is Heidi Swapp. I think that about covers it! Now head on over to the blog and check out what the DT has to show you. This ends my term on the BnW Guest DT. It was fun; I always love to create with Elisabeth Bell's adorable images, and to create alongside such a talented group was an honor!

Happy Spring!

Wow, Gina, I am so sorry for taking so long to get over here and check out your handiwork, but this was worth waiting to see! Just gorgeous! I love the colors and that butterfly paper is delightful. You deserve a better teamie (but you're stuck with me for a while :D)

Big Hugz,
