Spring Time......and a bit of "Excitement"

Here I sit thinking of Spring....
It is snowing...so what's new right....
It was 42 here yesterday, the first day in months I was actually warm..
even the dog was panting!!
To ease "the pain" of winter, I went right for a Spring card..
Before I get to my card, I would love for you to stop by my blog on Monday....
I have some very exciting news I am "bursting" at the seams to share with you!!!
Okay, on to my project......



Pale yellow has become my favorite color for a few years now...
However, I seem to make more "pink" cards then anything...
maybe because pink is also a favorite...who knows!!

Once a month Sandy at "Crafty Secrets" has a challenge...
I try to play every month.....
The DT does some amazing work there...check it out....

For my card I used a Crafty Secrets digital of Easter Eggs.....
I had a hard time choosing which one to use, as they are gorgeous!!
....I went with these sweet birdies and pretty flowers...yes, because it has "yellow" in it.


I made my flowers and used PanPastels to color them....
A tiny black gem was place in the center of each.....
I added a matching little Easter egg tag to the bow.....

Products used are:
Banana Split Card Stock......from Classy Cards 'n Such
Green Gable Card Stock....SU
PanPastels.....from Classy Cards 'n Such
Tattered Floral Die....TH Alterations (the leaves, too)
Polynesian Sails die....Cheery Lynn Designs...Classy Cards 'n Such has ALL CLD dies 32% off
