Stamping in the Rain

Hoping for Spring

Here is my wish for Spring to come, LOL.  I have had it with the rain.  I'm ready to see the sun.  This morning, I looked up and saw some orange coming through the window.  I thought there was something wrong.  (it was raining, of course).  It turned out to be the sun coming up, peaking through the clouds, LOL.  It's gone now, but I made this card to remind me that it will be back!  :)
I borrowed this design from Heather Heroldt.  I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set for the flowers and punched them out with the new Blossom Punch.  The leaves are made of Lucky Limeade, punched using the 5-Petal Flower Punch.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, using the Word Window Punch and Modern Label Punch, popped up on dimensionals.  I used Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait Ink, stamped off once for the lighter shaded flower.  I love this Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and pretty and bright.  Well, our daffodils are blooming, so I know Spring is on it's way, I just wish it would hurry up!  :)

Here I switched the colors around a bit, using Poppy Parade for the main flower, then stamping off once for the one underneath.  The top flower on both cards is popped up on dimensionals.

I hope you're all having a great week.  We're all back to school and work here after a lovely relaxing Spring Break.  We actually got two days of sun during our break and put them to good use, too!  I feel refreshed and ready to go again.
