So glad it's Spring

Aaah! Have you got that fresh feeling too? I 'm so happy when winter is over, daylight is just arriving as I wake up. I have so much more energy now. Bring it on!
The sun is shining today and the garden is loving it; the goldfinches and bluetits have been feeding and my anemones are eager to show their flowers. I hope they will open this week so my mom can see them before she goes back to Belgium.
I have made 2 Spring inspired cards, I cut out the cards with my new Wild Card  cartridge -a gift from my mom-. I love this cart, now I can make all shapes and sizes of card and always have a fitting envelope.
Mom bought me quite a few presents, because of my Birthday next Monday. This cute Mo Manning stamp had been on my list for a while. I love how she's soaking up the sun, just how I feel today.
Supplies: DCWV Spring stack, American Crafts flowers, Making Memories brad, Doodlebug  jewel , Woodware leaf punch, Tea dye Distress ink, Woodware circle and scalloped punch, Fiskars small oval punch, yellow ribbon from stash, Mo Manning stamp, Copics, clear embossing powder, Tsukineko ink, Hero Arts sentiment stamp.
The next card is very small, the height is 5", but it's really narrow. A little Tilda with her little budgie in it's cage. I kept the colors very "Springy".
Supplies: DCWV Spring stack, Prima flowers, Papermania pearls, Diamond Stickles, McGill branch punch, ribbon from Hobbycraft, Hero Arts sentiment stamp, Fiskars small label punch, Pearl Glimmer Mist, Copics, Tsukineko ink.

Two adorable cards. You'll really enjoy that Wild Card cartridge. It is truly one of my favorites and go to cartridges. Thanks so much for playing with us at BBTB2.

The weather is still yo-yoing here. We had snow last friday again.

I love that Cricut cartridge too...especially the circle card you used. :)

Awww, they're both perfection!

I can see why some of these things have been on your "wish list."
