~Springing forward..

I've made several cards since I last posted, but each time I think about uploading one I'm struck with writer's block. Coming up with something catchy to say beyond just, I used this paper and that ink and the stamp is from so-and-so, seems to come easier for many of the bloggers I read than it does for me. I don't have children to brag about or a husband to share interesting stories of so on a day to day basis I am often lost. Now that my northern friends have returned home and I will no longer have an opportunity to share my work with them personally, I will once again make a concerted effort to find a few words to attach to my cards.
Supplies:
Stamp Image: Lockhart Stamps purchased from Ellen Hutson
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink Spiral Bouquet
Paper: SU Wild Wasabi Special Product Offer, Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White Cardstock, and the red and white polka dot is from my bin of I just can't throw away my scraps.
Ink: Palette Hybrid Ink Jardin Moss and Noir
Incidentals: Copic Markers and Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour Pencils, White SU Grosgrain Ribbon, Create-a-Cut paper trimmer, Scor-It.

Post Note:
The inspiration for this card was born out of frustration. The Special Product Offer paper, unbeknownst to me when I placed my order, was already scored in an offset layout I had never worked with before. My Lockhart Stamps had just arrived from Ellen and the garden clogs seemed to be the perfect fit and balance. One thing led to another and a new card was born!

I love this card.
I can almost smell the green of the garden and touch the red of the tulips. Great color choices. And I love the stamp. The liners of the garden shoes make me want to buy some just like them!
