Spring Spring Spring and more Spring...

I know that you must think I'm going CRAZY about Springtime, but I just can't help myself....  There are so many fun things to create with a Springtime theme, that I just had to do it again.... Not only that, but today is the 25th of the month, and that means that a brand new challenge over at Elisabeth Bells World Challenge Blog has started.... and yes, the theme there is "Spring is In The Air"... using LOTS & LOTS of Flowers...  So I did exactly that!  We've got LOTs of flowers...

And I used a Brand New stamp from none other than Elphine House Australia.  (they just so happen to be sponsoring the challenge this month)  =)  Meet "Carrie - Thoughtful" She's absolutely perfect for a springtime card...  What a sweet little doll, standing in the Spring Breeze. 



I truly enjoyed coloring this little sweetie, she's too cute to pass up.  I used copics for my coloring, simply because..... I just can't live without my copics....
You will NEVER believe what I did to this card when I was in process of gluing on all those tiny punched flowers....  Ohhhhh my goodness, this is what I get for drinking coffee at the same time that I'm crafting.  yes it's true... I had to cover my little tiny boo boo with a Butterfly from Whiff of Joy.  I accidently dripped one tiny little drop of coffee on my card... I thought I would cry...  There was no way I could start all over again... so the secret here is you should never under-estimate what you can do, or shall I say what you can "hide" with an accessory stamp.  ha ha

Have you all had time to join in the blog hop over on The Digi Bells Blog???  And are you interested in being a guest for The Digi Bells???  The GDT call is still going on, but not for long... Why not go on over and check it out?

I think I would have cried with coffee drip but the butterfly is awesome and looks as if it belongs there. Makes a gorgeous embellishment... Beautiful coloring, stitching and flowers. Truly awesome card Lynda. "Hugs"
