We have SPRUNG forward...

What a morning...woke up to rain and wind, and wind and rain...and then we went Amish (no electric)...yet again...not for horribly long, but long enough! The ground is still pretty frozen here so all the rain sits on top of the ground...lots of flooding today, roads flooded, enough so the neighbors are outside snapping photos of their flooded land. I talked with my FIL and said he had to hook up the generator because the basement walls were seeping and the basement would flood if he didn't keep the sump pump going...but all is well, just a wet start to today! LOL

As if that wasn't enough, daylight savings time has begun for another year, so I'm already an hour behind! LOL...

So since rain to me = Spring around the corner, I thought a nice spring card would be in order! I met several challenges with this card, Pink Elephant Challenge blog was to use Die Cuts and Ribbon, the Cupcake Challenge Blog challenge was Spring, and I used the Mojo Monday sketch.
So let's discuss the card briefly, I found this adorable nest stamp by Inkadinkado (which is a nameless stamp) and decided to use my Nestabilities Label 1 dies to cut it out. The nest is stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored with Tombow pens, then matted on SU and IOD (striped) paper. Then I added the ribbon, the sentiment and pierced the bottom left corner towards the sentiment. Recipe below, enjoy!

Recipe:
  • Stamp: Inkadinkado Nest, Studio G Sentiment
  • Ink: Staz On
  • Paper: SU, IOD, Watercolor
  • Other: Nestabilities Label 1, Ribbon, Piercer, Pop Dots
