The card I am showing you today for Create with Connie & Mary makes me think of spring. We are still in winter mode here in Maine and spring is usually not in full swing for us until April and sometimes as late as the beginning of May. Can't wait even though I have enjoyed snowmobiling this winter.

Here is my card for this week's Color Challenge:

I thought I would use the stamp set "Rain or Shine" in a different way on my card for today. I stamped the umbrella upside-down and filled it with hearts! Where did the teeny tiny punched hearts come from? The "Owl Punch"! I even used my exacto knife to cut around the curves of the umbrella so I could neatly tuck some of the hearts in. The beautiful embossed clouds you see on my stamped panel are from the "Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Folder":

Have a great day and make sure you pay us a visit at Create with Connie & Mary! We all enjoy hearing from you and we would love for you to join us!
