Today's PPA sketch challege was a fun card to make.  I got to watercolor!!  I have always loved coloring!   The framelits that 'Stampin Up' came out with recently are so easy to use and have become some of my favorite things to use when I make cards.

Spring/Easter Cards

The cards I made all reflect upcoming Spring!  In North Dakota it seems like we just started winter in March; we have had a wonderful winter season so far!  It is nice to know that whatever cold, wintery weather we get now will soon melt away to Spring!


All four cards I made I used the paper from the sale-a-bration catalog from Stampin' Up!   So many beautiful colors to work with!
