Hooray for Spring!

Spring has finally arrived! It was in the 70's here in Louisville and the sun was shining today. I love it!

I especially love moving all the heavy bulky sweaters out of my closet. They take up way too much room and I love packing them away in big Rubbermaid tubs. Off to the attic! That's one of my favorite things about the change to warm weather - getting out my spring and summer clothes.

I also love all the spring blooming flowers, like pansies, daffodils and hyacinth. Best of all is when the lilac blooms! I had a huge lilac bush at my old house and it is one of the things I miss the most. The Bradford pears are in bloom all around us. Unfortunately we lost two from our back yard as a result of the ice storm. The good news is that we are having three new trees planted tomorrow. I can't wait to see how they look.

Here is a birthday card I made for our niece Courtney who just turned 13 this month. She loves the color pink and absolutely loves cupcakes.
I had not made a card in quite awhile and it was fun picking out some spring paper and embellishments. I bought some of the paper stacks in citrus colors and bought some fruit and flower stickers in those same colors. I can't wait to make more cards!
