Spring Has Sprung...or has it...?

Hi all my crafty friends!

The calendar tells me that Spring is "officially" here, but I'm starting to wonder... it sure has been COLD the past few days! We've had frost warnings for 2 or 3 nights in a row!

Yes, I just moved back to PA from North Carolina, but isn't frost warning NOVEMBER weather, like, right before it snows??

I have Spring-on-the-brain and can't wait to start digging in the dirt and planting flowers at our new place!

Of all the things I miss most about our place in NC, I think my garden and huge yard is highest on that list!

This week, our WEEKLY challenge at The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog (yep, in case you missed it, we've gone to WEEKLY challenges now!!) is:


Somehow, I managed to cut out my image at some screwy crooked angle, so the cart looks all askew! As I was heading out the door to go to work, there was no time to get a "do-over", so, it is what it is, right? Gives it that "home made" "hand-crafted" look... LOL!! (-:

I'm still learning how to do print and cut with my new Eclips, and you should SEE the paper scraps strewn about my craft room and I kept making simple, silly mistakes! Auck!! But I'm getting it! I just have to pay attention better and stop trying to rush... 

The image is from The Stamping Boutique, the background paper is a freebie from the Making Handmade Cards Newsletter, the shape around my cart is from Penny Duncan, the font for the sentiment is "Blackjack",  the swirl/flourish is my SVG version similar to the DieNamics Fancy Flourish, ummm... that's about it!
