TCP Tuesday Challenge #345: Spring!

 
Ahhhh Spring... is it Spring-like in your neck-0-the-woods?  I sure do hope so - as I'm writing this it is still pretty cold here in Michigan... but!  by the time this posts, I'll be enjoying Springtime, jazz, and beignets, in New Orleans with my husband! 


Our TCP Tuesday Challenge #345 asks for a card that indicates your idea of Spring ... here's mine:

 
I adore houndstooth, and dots, and this delightful flourish from the TCP Patterned Petals stamps, and  That sentiment could stand in for many occasions - I like that - it allows me to write anything I want to on the inside!
 
I have another version using the coordinating Leaf Scroll die
 
This sentiment is from the Sassy Birthday set.


Okay... here are the deets/rules of the game:

• Each month a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
• to play along you just upload your Spring design to this month's The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button provided.
• You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them, please, we would love to see them.
• On the day of the next challenge the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $50.

Pretty easy, right?  So let's see that gallery fill up with Spring time pretties, my friends!  You have until April 30th to link up!
