Spring is in the air!

Who else loves this time of year? Spring, how I love thee...and miss thee! Spring lasts all but what seems like a day here in Texas. Temps already near 90 degrees and the humidity that makes it not pleasant to be outside! I usually have a few days that I can open all the windows and air-out the house, but not this year!  But if that is the worst thing I can complain about, then life is good and I will now shut my mouth!

I came across one of Jillibean Soup's new collections--Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup--and had to buy it!  I love the softness of the colors, PERFECT for Spring!

Here is the card I made (well, one of the cards) using this cute collection:

Recollection Kraft Cardstock
Jillibean Soup - Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup
EK Success Border Punch - Notebook
Fiskars Large Tag Punch
Studio G Stamp
Paper Studio Ink

I showed my husband this card and he asked if it was a Mother's Day card. It never crossed my mind that the saying would be great for that occassion! Is it not amazing what another pair of eyes will see...let alone a male's ;)

Hope everyone has a great day and finds some time to craft!
