Spring reminds me of many firsts. The first rose on a bush, the first daffodil breaking through the earth, the first bee and butterfly. The first time I saw the ground since last fall, LOL (I live in NH so that happens at least half the time) The first day without a jacket. I am sure you could come up with many spring time firsts too!
Do you remember the first time you "fell" in love? I remember being in first grade and certain that I met my future husband. You know, now I can't even remember his name, LOL. It happens to all of us though, that first love.
Spring reminds me of this too. Maybe from watching the movie Bambi when I was younger, LOL. Remember when Flower then Thumper and finally Bambi became twitterpated (did you know that is really a word!)
So, even though Valentines Day is over, we love or fall in love all year long. Above is the card I made to represent a first spring "Twitterpation", ha ha ha
These images are from Sew Many Cards. You can always tell one of their images because of the cute little patches on them.
I colored them to resemble my husband and I since we met when we were in high school, which seems fairly young in todays world.
I really think these 2 images belong together, don't you?
Ink: Ink Jet
Paper: Paper Temptress, Papertrey Ink
Asseccories: Big shot, nestabilites, Stampin' Up texturz plate, paper piercer, piercing mat, silver elastic cord, self adhesive pearls, misc. charm, ribbon, Copic markers

Challenges that I am entering this card in: Little Red Wagon: dry embossing
Crafty Card Maker: Do something that you have avoided doing---Used Papertrey Ink Pattern Paper and card stock which I have stayed away from because it does not match the Paper Temptress Paper that I have. I don't like not using PT Card stock since I have first used it. All other paper seems dull in comparison so I have completely avoided using any other.
Res-Q Challenge: two fold---1. use pastels 2. us an image that makes me smile. These images make me smile because they remind me of my new DT spot for Sew Many Cards.
Charisma Cardz Challenge: Monochromatic
I hope your day is full of spring time firsts.
Hugs, Sandy O
