Hello! It's not spring yet around here...that's for sure!

March is one of the worst months of the year around here in my opinion. It doesn't matter that I grew up right here in New England...every year I find it hard to face the fact that just because the calendar has changed to March...Mother Nature is still giving us full on winter. Actually, I prefer a good Blizzard...it's exciting and very beautiful after the fact. But in March we don't get that. We get a wet snowing mushy snow. And it just looks dirty afterward. It makes your shoes, the bottom of your pants and your car FILTHY! The problem is, by March, I am ready for spring...in a bad way!! Particularly this year.

To help spring along, I thought it was time to start making some spring themed cards. Complete with posies and pastels and Easter eggs. Both Tilda and the Easter egg are available at Magnolia-licious. Diana has oodles of Easter stamps in. Plus, you can Pre-order the Hoppy Easter collection now.

This sketch for this card was provided by fellow Magnolia-licious DT member Jacque.
This is the Magnolia-licous sketch of the month. You can check out the deets on the Magnolia-licious highlites blog. You will also be able to view the other DT members fantastical cards there! So enjoy!

I want to thank the girls over at The Divine Influence for inviting me to feature my blog!
I am totally honored!! Check it out!



And finally, I said I would share a few photos of CHA again. Some more amazing stampers that I think of as my friends!!

Have an Astounding Tuesday!

Love your springy card! I am with you on the March thing. March is always forever long and we can have some nasty storms and yes, it is heavy wet snow. Of course we have had our share of blizzards in April as well but April just sounds like spring.
