A couple of weeks ago I took some pictures of the beautiful spring flowering trees in our neighborhood. I love seeing the beautiful trees and flowers, but Spring always puts me in a kind of bad mood because I know that summer isn't far behind it. I do not like summer. It's hot, it's humid, there are bugs everywhere and if that's not enough there are mosquitoes biting you every chance they get!
This spring I am trying really hard to just enjoy the season for what it has to offer and not worry about summer coming. Here are some of the trees I took pictures of.
A red bud and a bradford pear

These trees are what I was trying to re-create in my card today

I stamped an image I had of a row of bare trees onto cardstock in a dark brown ink. The image I used is from Inkadinkadoo. Then I applied glue to the trees and sprinkled on some flower soft. I never seem to add enough, and I after the first attempt dried I added more. I chalked the sky and the ground.
the designer paper I used is from Stampin Up. The greeting is really a reminder to myself to not hold summer against spring.
I hope those of you who are experiencing spring right now enjoyed seeing a bit of our spring, and I hope those of you still in the midst of winter enjoy a glimpse of what's coming to you soon!
Before I go, can I ask a favor of you? The squigglefly blog has an informal poll about digital stamps. If you have the time, would you please click over and leave a comment telling them what you think? They truly want to make squigglefly what you'd like it to be and your answers can help make that happen. Thanks!
Have a great day and thanks for looking!
