Count your rainbows...

Hey there!

I hope the weekend treated you well. It's been beautiful and sunny here so I've been enjoying getting outside more. You'll hear no complaints from me with this early taste of spring. 

So it isn't a surprise to see my cards leave the Valentine's theme behind and lighten up to reflect the warmer weather. Which actually made playing along in this week's Farm Fresh Challenge a bit trickier. The theme is 'Love is in the Air' and of course that seems to imply a Valentine. But instead I chose to focus on the air part of the theme and found a stamp that could fly through the sky. I settled on Butterfly Anya from the Spooky set because not only is she a cutie patootie but her wings kinda look like hearts which helped hit the love part of the theme as well. I colored her up in a pretty pastel rainbow of hues to match back to both the sentiment and that great washi tape. So even though I might be stretching things a bit this week the challenge really did inspire this entire card.  :)

Well, I should get a move on... I have the day off but there is a mile long to-do list calling my name. Catch ya later!
