*i'm so ready for spring!*

It has been such a long and harsh winter here in the Midwest. Cold and dreary days like today make me so anxious for spring! I made this bright and cheery Elzybells card this morning thinking it would lift my spirits a bit and bring on spring. Well, it did make me feel better... but spring's still not here!

My daughter, Livi, and I spent yesterday afternoon in my stamping room. She was busy making cards for the Kids' Gallery over at The Saltbox Studio. She is so excited, and I can't wait until the gallery is up so she can see her very own little "masterpieces" on the computer. While she was stamping her little heart out, I was cutting out stamps. Livi loves to help me peel the paper off the back so I can attach them to the blocks. I wish I got such a kick out of cutting them out. I was happy that the Sale-A-Bration sets came die-cut. I will be even happier if some day all of Stampin' Up sets come pre-cut. A girl can only hope.

Well it sure cheers ME up for Spring! We've had a few really gorgeous days here in the PNW and I'm so anxious for Spring, too. Crocuses are starting to come up in my yard and I'm beginning to see signs of the tulips, too. Hooray!
