Paperwings Spring Blog Hop

Today is the first day of spring and we are celebrating with gusto over at PaperWings, an online resource for demonstrators for The Angel Company, with a Blog Hop.  The theme:  Spring (of course)!  You will find lots of spring themed cards from the blog participants - you'll find the links at the end of the post.

The stamp set I used is Frogs and Kisses along with Mia's Cottage paper collection.  I just love these frogs and balloons - they are so cheerful, uplifting, and so spring!!  The images are colored with my trusty Copics.  Then I used a glitter pen for highlights on the balloon and frog.  The edges of the image have been distressed with Chartreuse Pallet ink.  What a great birthday card this will make for someone  special.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to drop by these blogs to see more Spring Inspirations!

Today's Abundance
-Serendipity - a chance siting and ensuing chat with a friend at the car dealer/service center - a place where neither of us frequent very often
-The melting snow, puddles, fog, soggy lawns
-Fabric, paper, and ink
-Coffee and French Toast
- Progress, albeit tiny, in decluttering the sewing room
