Can’t Help Myself!

More snowflakes have been drifting steadily out of the sky today and I had to run into my craft room for some therapy!  Spring, where are you?!!

I frantically dug out as many flower stamps as I could find and settled on one from SU!’s Betsy’s Blossoms set.  It had been neglected for much too long, so I inked it up in some Concord Crush ink (SU).

I CASE’d this card over on Splitcoast Stampers by Ceal (a.k.a. simplybeautiful), for this week’s featured stamper on the Clean & Simple challenge.  I was immediately drawn to the big, bold flower on her card and took it from there!

Only one more day until March 1st arrives.  I’m ready for green grass and beautiful blooms.  I’d even be willing to mow the lawn, if given the chance right now!  Yes, winter has lost it’s glory for me at this point in the season.  I don’t mean to sound all gloomy about snow, but aren’t bright, colorful blooms and barefoot days a rather exciting thought?!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful Wednesday!

    Great card Melissa. Love the kraft, and those leaves are so sweetly delicate. Makes me think it's time to dig out some of my under-loved stamps! After the snows this month, spring can come anytime! Bev
