First Day of Spring and ANOTHER Snow Storm?!

Today is the FIRST day of Spring in the US!  I am so excited and SO ready to put this horrible Winter behind us!  Between sick kids, numerous snow storms, and being sick myself, I seriously cannot wait for sunny days and warmer temperatures!   But not so fast, because we are on track to get hit by ANOTHER snow storm TOMORROW.  It will be the 4th big one to hit us in Connecticut in less than a month!  I am hoping for a last minute change of course, but if the storm stays on the track it’s on now, we’re looking at another foot or more of snow!  YUCK!  I guess Mother Nature isn’t done with Winter yet!

I chose today’s card for it’s bright and sunny message, as I thought it was appropriate for the first day of Spring!  (It was made by the Stampin’ Up! concept artists, so I can’t take credit for it!)  This beautiful card features the Rainbow Builder Framelits and the A Good Day stamp set.  Both items can be found in the Occasions Catalog, as well as in the online store.

I am not 100% sure on the colors used, but I am going to guess that they are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pool Party, and Rich Razzleberry.  All of the color on this card is applied with aquapainters, so it is heavily diluted to get those gorgeous pastel tones!  In addition to the rainbow colors, it looks like some Smoky Slate was applied to the clouds to give them a little color and shading as well!

Please keep your fingers crossed that we don’t get much from this storm tomorrow!   We have lost our cable and internet a few times with all the bad weather, so if you don’t hear from me for a couple of days, it’s a good bet that it’s out again!

Thanks for checking in today!
