Good morning one and all! Today is officially the first day of Spring, so what better day to post a card welcoming it!

This card uses an image from Squigglefly that I colored with copics. The background was chalked and the bunny was flocked. I embossed some designer paper and then punched a border and mounted it on a card. The Happy Spring sentiment was stamped in purple ink below the border. I think this sentiment stamp is from Penny Black but I am not positive.
I also glued a little brown flower soft to the pots for "dirt". Everytime I look at the card I think it needed something else, so I threaded some feathery yarn that I had through the eyelet holes, moved the image over to the right, and glued a small purple prima flower at the end of the flouish in the greeting. I was going to add a flower to the left of the image where some of the designer paper pulled off when I moved it, but it looked a little busy so I just used a copic marker to touch up the white spots on the designer paper and it matched really well. With the embossing on the paper you really don't notice it. It's more noticeable in the photo than in real life. Can you see where it is?
I'm happy to say that I slept better last night. I think the whole not sleeping well thing is all because of this blasted daylight savings time! Hopefully my body is adjusted to it now. I hate waking up in the middle of the night or way too early in the morning and then being tired all day long! I'll be so sleepy all day thinking only of bed, but around 10:00 at night when I should be going to bed, I suddenly feel wide awake and not sleepy at all so I stay up a little later and then I'm going to bed too late! Going to bed late coupled with waking up an hour before the alarm is due to go off does not make for a good next day!
Do you have anything fun planned for your weekend? I'm going to a stamp camp on Sunday, and I always look forward to those! I'll be sure to share what we make with ya'll!
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
