** Happy Easter / Spring ! **

Good morning, all:

Back again with a lil' ditty of a card. Easter / Spring is now among us, and I was feeling mighty inspired by it all lately.

It was practically time for me to try to go to bed last night when the mojo to make a cute Easter/ Spring card just hit me! Like WHAM!

With my eyes closed I practically could have pulled together all the supplies I knew I was going to need for this card. The mind just wants what it wants sometimes! No shuffling through my paper packs, or embellishments, no sifting and searching for the right pieces to use. I had a vision almost instantly and it all came together so well. 

Doesn't it always happen like that?? You try to calculate all the factors of a "perfect" card in advance, and usually always spend more time searching for all the right ingredients than you do actually making the cake. Then, BOOM, when you least expect it (and always super close to bed time when you really shouldn't be stimulating your mind into a frenzy and should just be trying to wind it down for the night) all the right inspiration and visions just fit together with ease and totally compel you to create! 

Well, here it is: 

"Easter-y, and Spring-y", right?? :)
