Celebrate Spring!

I am so ready for Spring!!! Our temp today was in the mid 60's and should be that tomorrow. I love it!! But alas, they say we will have really cold temps by next week! :( Booooooo!! But for now I will enjoy. Across our front yard we have a line of what we have always called Buttercups. Now, before anyone wants to correct me, I know that they are daffodils, but we grew up with them as being buttercups. By either name, they are beautiful and the row in front of our yard is in full bloom right now! Yeah! Full bloom!! So in honor of our 'buttercups', that is what I put on my card that I am entering into the challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. The challenge for this week is to make a new card or project using a Cricut cut for a spring theme. And my buttercup is just perfect for this challenge!! I cut it from the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge. It can be found on page 32. I cut it at 3.25 inches. The butterfly can be found on page 34 and I cut it at 1.25 inches. The grass can be found on the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge in the #42 spot on the overlay. I cut 3 at 1.25 inches each. The middle one I flipped and trimmed down to fit between the two on each side. The clouds are from two different sized EK punches. I love how I can just punch out a cloud if I need one. I used a Star Dust gelly roll pen and added the silver lining to the clouds and some doodling on the flower and butterfly. My sentiment is from the Think Spring stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I popped up the buttercup, butterfly and both sentiment clouds on one thickness of foam tape. Well, that's it. Hope ya'll like my card! :)

Way too cute... I really admire how you always decorate the inside of your cards. I must pick up this habit. It really makes for a more professional card. LOVE the little bee.
