I don't know about you but...

I have a real yearning for Spring now!  Yes I realize I live in the Midwest and technically we have many weeks to go, but I just don't know how much longer I can hold out!!! I am sure you can relate? Well though I cannot bring you fun in the sun just yet, Inky Impressions Challenges can help you dream of the days to come. Our new challenge is Think Spring - Use Bright or Pastel colors on your creation!!! Doesn't that just warm you right up? I for obvious reasons, chose my lovely Flower Lili for my card, to me she is what spring means to me most, f lowers! Here is my card:


  
I just love this card it came together quite nicely.  I have finally started to appreciate the paper flowers after dragging my feet for so long, 


My card applies to the following challenges as well:
The Pink Elephant  Ribbon
Our Creative Corner  Something old that's new (the buttons and flowers)
Practical Scrappers  Flowers 
A Spoon Full Of Sugar  Spring Time 
Polka Doodles   Hearts / Flowers
Lexi's Creations  Spotted or Striped
Kaboodle Blog  Spots & Stripes
PaperPlay Challenges  Birthday for someone special (it's a secret) 
Penny's Challenges  Birthday


Well, that sums it up! I hope your yearning for Spring inspires you to play along. Be sure to check out the rest of the Inkettes, you will be glad ya did. Have a Happy Hump-Day! Beth
