Freaky Spring!

Welcome to the Control Freaks blog tour for March. We're so happy that you "hopped" by! This month's theme is Spring (or Easter), and we certainly have been having a freaky Spring, haven't we? I think Punxsutawney Phil was totally wrong when he predicted an early spring last month. He couldn't have been more wrong!

If you began at the beginning (Patty Bennett's blog), and have been following the "next" buttons at the bottom of each stop, then you just arrived here from Justin Krieger's blog. Weren't his projects awesome? To complete the tour, just click the links at the bottom of each post and you'll make the rounds of all ten blogs.

My two projects are cards, and when I think Spring, I think flowers and butterflies and birds, so this stamp from For the Birds was perfect!

 Stamp: For the Birds - Cardstock: Shimmery White, Lucky Limeade, So Saffron, Whisper White, Tea for Two DSP - Ink: Black StazOn, Soft Suede, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo - Accessories: Big Shot, Cloudy Day folder, Bitty Banners Framelits, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Pearls Basic Jewels

I love to color, and when I'm not using Watercolor Paper, I like to use Shimmery White cardstock. That's what was used here, matted on Lucky Limeade. The popped-up clouds add a nice dimension.

My other "Spring-y" thought was bunnies, what with Easter and all, so the Ears to You single stamp was my choice. This is a bling-y, Spring-y card, for sure.  It cracked me up when I was finished, because I thought it looked like the two outer bunnies were looking at the middle bunny's behind and saying, "Dude! What is that on your butt?!"

Stamps: Designer Typeset, Ears to You, Bring on the Cake - Cardstock: Shimmery White, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Tea for Two DSP, Pink Pirouette DSP, Certainly Celery DSP - Ink: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, Black StazOn - Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka-Dots folder, Rhinestones Basic Jewels
