Spring is the in the air! It's time for some blog candy!

This is the first week of this year that temperatures are going to be above 40-degrees, here, in the Omaha area. Woo-hoo! Spring is definitely right around the corner. To celebrate, I am going to give away this cute Magnolia Stamp. It's of Tilda holding a bouquet of flowers. So appropriate for Spring, don't you think? Here's what I'd like you to do. Create a card with the following elements:

* Your card should scream "Spring! Spring! Spring!" Think flowers, Easter eggs, tulips, birds, babies, garden scenery... you get the picture.
* Must be a new card (it shouldn't be one that you've already posted on your blog, before.) The date on your blog post should not be earlier than 10th March, 2008.

That's it! Pretty easy, huh? Please link your creation to the comments section of this post, and link this thread to your blogpost. The deadline is Sunday, 16th March, 2008 at 8 AM CST (Central Standard Time, USA). All cardmakers are welcome to participate. I am willing ship this cutie overseas, so international artists are also welcome!

I loved this challenge because it gave me the opportunity to use my new Gruffies stamp as well as to think positively and optomistically that all of my snow WILL melt and someday I'll see spring. Here is my Spring card: http://thimblesbobbinspaperandink.blogspot.com/2008/03/digging-up-dirt.html

Thanks for the challenge!
