Green Friday

It’s Friday again and with fresh, new snow on the ground, I’ve got mixed emotions today.  While I love the clean look of brand new snow, I just can’t shake the feeling of spring fever that’s already begun to stir.  I have nothing to complain about this winter.  It has been unseasonably mild and dry, but winter is winter.  I’m looking forward to the return of color in the landscape.  To those of you who enjoy the cold, wet snow, I apologize for not seeming a bit more excited.

For today’s 2 Cute Ink creation, I chose to use a little green.  St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and, for me, it’s the beginning of spring’s return!  This Shamrock Turtle is rather adorable, don’t you think?  My card, on the other hand, isn’t one I’m extremely satisfied with.  There’s “clean & simple” and then there’s “too clean & too simple.”  I think this one fits the latter category.  I fussed around trying to add one or two more elements to it, but my brain just wouldn’t budge, so I had to let it remain as it is.  I’m posting it anyway.  It’ll keep me humble.

    Very cute, Melissa! A burst of springtime happiness on a winter day. Love the kraft base and love that little turtle. I really like the addition of the gems beneath the sentiment, too.
