Spring.

I am away from my desk for a few days so I have pre-set this post along with a few others to get me through until I am back. We have a big week this week (for my son) who is finally getting his autism and complex behaviour assessment done. I know this can be emotionally drawing experience and I wanted to give my 100% attention to his needs and to making this a smooth process. I will keep you updated. Please know that I wont be replying to e-mail until after Thursday.

I figured some spring cards were in order since many of my friends and even family members are getting another blast of winter. We had a dusting of snow yesterday but for the most part have been enjoying the beautiful sunshine and cold temperatures.

One of the "signs" of spring for me is "green". There is something about that fresh and vibrant green that brings a smile to my face. The newness of the flower buds and the leaves on the trees. Not to mention green grass--the smell of freshly cut grass.



You'll notice that I stamped the leafy image with the flowers. When I designed these stamps I had this in mind. I also designed the Spring Flowers sentiment to sit over the flower image. Nichole changed the sentiment a little to make it just perfect *smiles*. Just so you know those black strips are paper strips cut and placed over the patterned paper.
