Spring Blessings

Happy Sunday! Beuatiful sunshine today but very cold. I am hoping that spring arrives soon. I need to thaw out and warm up. LOL! My card today was inspired by spring and the sketch at I {heart} sketches with a twist.

The twist this week is "almost spring." Since we've had some warmer weather our daffodils are blooming here and probably froze since we've had this cold snap. But daffodils and crocus are usually the first flowers to appear around here and herald the news that spring has sprung. The image of the daffodils can be found at From the Heart Stamps. I colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers and die cut the image with MFT Stitched Circles. The background for the image was cut from a scrap of green card stock with Spellbinder's Scalloped Circles. The sentiment is from the Daffodil stamp set and die cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags and finally inked with Squeezed Lemonade distress ink. The background is a scrap from my scrap box backed with black cardstock and a green card stock base. Here's the sketch I followed:
I am entering these challenges:

Hope your day is awesome. I have to go pick up the twins and they'll be with us for dinner and a little time after until we have to get them home for baths and bed. I am hoping it warms up this week so we can get them out for walks. Take care! Make it an awesome week.

I agree, daffodils are a sign it's "almost spring." These are so cute in their eggshell vase.

Thanks for joining us for our Think Green challenge at Cut it Up!

Delightful sunshine daffodils. Some of our neighbors have the white & yellow varieties that have blossomed, and we had a tiny patch under one of the foundation bushes by the porch. The ones in our flower beds haven't bloomed as yet. Oh yes, had one hyacinth put out a blossom, but it got burnt in the last cold after our faux spring. I wish I had this vase of pretty daffs sitting on my table on a gloomy day such we had today.Love the zing of that bold chevron paper behind the bouquet too. Definitely the card that would cheer up someone with this crazy weather.Hope you guys stay ok if you get any of Stella come your way. TFS & Hugs
