Spring Is Sprung!


Oh how I wish that were true here...but we've got snow to melt till the cows come home!  Though I think it will feel like spring when you see this beautiful set illustrated again by Marcella.  I just about squealed when I saw it.... it really combines some beautiful images of spring and Easter but can be used year round for many occasions.


As soon as I saw the nest I knew that I wanted to color it on Kraft paper with Prismacolors.  That white/blue combination of pencils just pops on Kraft.    I like the cute Easter Border Petites along the bottom too - and it's on sale at Flourishes too :)  Just thought you might want to know that :)


Now how about the total adorable factor....


Just look at those bunnies in the flowers and grass!  That totally says spring :)  Coloring is with Copics on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. 

I've created a little lattice work/basket weave on my Lacey Circle Nestability to lay the bunnies on, and isn't this the perfect paper?  It's new in the store from Prima called Jack and Jill Celebrate.  Such adorable prints in this pack of paper.  


Just look at those cute little bunny tails!  My heart just smiles!

The Design Team has beautiful things to show you again today...

I saw a robin in our back yard today and I it won't be long before we find blue egg shells from hatched chicks in our yard. Lovely nest image and fabulously coloured as always. Fun bottom border to the card too.

As for the bunnies....I'm having some issues with the one in my yard that chewed my crocuses down to the dirt!!! Now I get NO crocuses blooming in my front garden so I maybe serving him for dinner this weekend LOL! Your image is darling and I love the pops of colour in the flowers. Great cards as always :)

Girl, the details on both of these amazing cards are wonderful! Love the colors showing through the border on the first one, as well as the beautiful image colored on kraft! And yes, those bunnies are adorable, but your woven die cut is phenomenal!

These are both so pretty Christine. I love the coloring on the Kraft. It gives it such a rich look. Your bunny card is colored to perfection. Great job.

Rose Ann said...

You've really brought these images to life with your beautiful coloring, Christine!! I love your pretty lattice work as well!!

Leslie Miller said...

Beautiful colors with your robin's eggs and nest, Christine! Love it on the kraft. And the bunnies -- super adorable! That ruffled ribbon edge is fabulous! I feel so lucky that we don't have bunny problems here. There are bunnies living in the brush near the beach, but for some reason they don't come into the garden. Therefore, I'm free to be enchanted by this sweet little scene!
