This is my card for the nursing home this week. Though it doesn't have a lot of pieces for them to put together, the "awesomeness" of the card makes up for it. Do you get that I like this card a lot?!?
I made the Hello spring tag on the computer - it's not a stamp. I sure hope Sheltering Tree makes it into the new catalog. I don't want it to go away when this Occasions catalog expires June 2. The new catalog is right around the corner. The retirement list comes out next week. Exciting!
I love the beautiful trees and spring flowers this time of year and wanted to capture it in my card this week. I wish the "warm" spring weather would get here and stay!!

I tried the Pink Pirouette ink and it wasn't quite dark enough. I bought one color of the new Color Box Chalk Inkpads in Rose Coral and hadn't tried it yet, so I thought I'd check it out. It's made to work on dark colors (like a chalkboard) but it worked great on my Whisper White.
