It MUST be Spring!

Good Morning!
I think we have spring.... woke up this morning to birds just a chirping away! Then the dog wanted out and guess what... we have an  inch of fresh snow 0<; People are getting really cranky around here I tell ya. DH was to play golf this morning!

I've been wanting to make one of these twisted easel cards for awhile. This one is huge - mungo, 6x6! It won't see an envelope, I think I will make a box! I think I will downsize the next one (0=

 My card base is early espresso layered with whisper white. My dp is a new , available in the new caddy! Paisley Petals is probably the prettiest paper SU has come out with for awhile! My focal image is from Mother's Day Bouquet (AnnaBelle Stamps). If you haven't done the hop there is still time to win this gorgeous set! You can go here to find the links! That's it for me.... Have a beautiful spring day!

I have been seeing this design lots lately and it is awesome! I even saw a lady do a double where they both curved toward the center. Very cool, Patti! Sorry about the snow. We had to cover our lettuce with a plastic tarp last night. Pouring rain is yet to come. If I don't get back here, have a wonderful Easter!
