welcome spring!

I had to remind myself this a.m. that, even tho' the thermostat read 19 degrees fahrenheit, it IS the first day of spring! whoo hoo!

In honor of spring I'm wearing pastel today ... mind you, it's a pastel blue sweater, but it IS pastel! I'm in awe of some of the clean simple lines of cards at the amuse blog (Julie, you ROCK!) and every now and then feel the pull to try creating a simple card - hence today's one! Ive always loved queens anne's lace and recently got this stamp (part of a mini 2-pc set) from Unity Stamp Co. To make the flowers stand out against the white cardstock, I colored them in a soft pink but touched 'em up with the white opaque pen. The sentiment's PC-generated but this flower set comes with a script sentiment that reads "feel the joy," which I'll use on the inside.

We're enjoying a cloudless blue sky today and it's supposed to get into the 40's here by mid-day. I've some flex time this week so I'll be soaking up some of those rays this afternoon out of doors! Hope you enjoy YOUR first day of spring too!

stamps: Unity Stamp Co's feel the joy; paper: SU's whisper white cardstock; ink: Inkssentials' white opaque pen, Tri-C watercolor markers; accessories: unknown lilac dotted swiss ribbon

Sue, this is perfect for the first day of Spring! We have had a very Spring-like few days this week, but next week we are looking at snow and temps in the 30s!

I love this card. The white added a nice effect.
