THINK SPRING!!! Sassy #59

Apr12 Spring clsup

Our Sassy Challenge today is Think Spring! I know it’s been officially “Spring” for a few weeks, but our weather changes every 5 minutes! We’ve seen it all… snow, tornado warnings, thunderstorms and more snow! Happy though, my Daffodils, Grape Hyacinths and a few other early flowers are BLOOMING!!

You can play along with us on this challenge, just be sure to USE A SASSY CHERYL’S  IMAGE! You could win a $5 gift certificate from Cheryl!

Spring…. new life as the earth wakes from its Winter sleep. Cows start calving, sheep are lambing…I love to see a field of babies!

So I picked this image, Bear Pulling Toy Lambs, for my card today!

Apr12 Spring

It’s colored with Copics and sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I used Spellbinders Labels 19 for my image.

Apr12 Spring punch

I did something interesting with the Garden Gate (Martha Stewart) punched piece. I spritzed it first with Rose Red Glimmer Mist, then took Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet Distress inks across it…ending with a spritz of water which blended the colors into this mottled effect! I like it!

I double punched the fence and stamped Happy Spring in Victorian Velvet (old stamp, and no clue who made it!)

For more Sassy inspiration,
see what the other girls have done!
