Spring song

Hi friends!

I hope that you had a lovely weekend whether you were celebrating Easter or not. The weather was absolutely beautiful here in my little corner of the world and I couldn't have enjoyed myself more. :)

Now that the holiday is done and over it feels pretty wide open as to what types of cards I can make. All this freedom and wouldn't you know it, I make another very spring looking card. Yes, I used more Dear Lizzy but I swear I am almost through the small pile of scraps that I've been trying to use up of it. That doesn't mean I don't have a whole little 6x6 pad of it waiting in the wings but at least it won't be staring me in the face each time that I try to clean my desk, LOL! And I'm back on my mission of inking up neglected stamps. This little beauty is Hazel from Sugar Nellie's Fairy Glen collection. I LOVE these little fairies and I got her ages ago but still she sat, waiting ever so patiently on that mushroom of hers. I think the spring pastels really suit her though so the wait seems to have been worth it. And I'm entering Hazel into this week's open challenge over at Flutter By because I know she'll fit right in over there. ;)

Well, another Monday means another day of work so I guess I should go get ready for it.
