Signs of Spring- April 5-12

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Moderator: Ellie

Hello All! I hope that you enjoyed a wonderful Easter weekend.
I am posting a little early as I have a busy day tomorrow and don't want to forget!

My challenge continues our Spring themed challenge, this time encouraging you to share one of your favorite signs of Spring. Maybe it will be your favorite flowers bring the first wonderful shouts of color from the earth? Busy bees or fluttering butterflies? Tell us about what your card depicts... and, if desired, why it brings you joy.

For me, a favorite sign of spring is that I get to pack my heavy winter clothes away... and welcome the much lighter clothing from the back of my closet. I also like to shop for at least a few new blouses or dresses, usually in bright floral colors and patterns. So my card features a dress shop that shows off a few new Spring fashions in the front window. How fun is that?!

To enter the challenge, please post your creation (card, tag, gift bag, etc.) here before 8 AM on Monday April 12th. I'll then use Mr. Random to help pick a winner who will receive a small prize from me. I can't wait to see what you share!

Entrants-

Kathy, that is a wonderful card with that great dress shop! That's a fun way to enjoy spring.

Our weather jumped from the 60s and 70s to 90s, so I think Spring just got sprung over. I'll have to think on your fun challenge.

We're planning our spring garden planting here in NC. This stamp reminds me of pretty-ing up the porch for spring.

I've loved Marigold since I was 11 years old...I received a seed packet and planted them but never got to see them grow because we moved but now that I'm much older i plant them every year in my outdoor planters.....now that I having Molly with me on Thursday she helps me plant them and let me tell you she overloads the planters with the Marigold seeds but when they start to grow the planters are full and pretty ....so I always know it is Spring when it's time to plant the Marigolds.

Elaine, how nice that you took a few minutes away from the beach to share with us! (I don't know if I would have been that generous with my lazy-time-in-the sun!!) Your card does look like Spring... green and growing!

Terrie, my mom always loved marigolds, too. When I was little the seeds fascinated me! Was always fun to help her get the seeds from the flowers to save until the following Spring. And I love their brights shouts of color!

Thanks to both of you for kicking off the challenge!
