First Peek of Spring
Are you a "Spring watcher?" I sure am! I know that technically it won't be Spring for another 5 weeks or so, but about this time every year, I find myself watching for the "signs." Are there buds forming on any of the trees? Are there sprouts shooting up in the garden? Do the birds seem to be starting their nests? It's a futile process, really -- Spring will come when it comes -- but I just can't seem to help myself!
I think that a lot of us must be "Spring watchers," because long before the season arrives, I start to see lots of Spring-like cards and projects being made. Here is a beautiful example, made by designer Donna Hanley. Donna used the newly-released "First Peek of Spring" set to create a little spring-time of her own. Everything about this card feels like a much-needed breath of fresh air after a long winter, don't you think? It's so invigorating that it almost inspires me to start my "spring cleaning." Almost. ;-)
