RSG: My flowery friends in the springtime!

Hello friends!

It's springtime on my blog today!
There's a new theme for the Ready, Set, Go Challenge ~
a mountain of a challenge that Barb, Jeanette and I climb 
every third Wednesday of month.

These challenges are typically 'out of the box'
(some would say not for the faint of heart, LOL)
It's wildly creative and always tons of fun!

This month it's a spin off of Barb's fantastic theme last month
which I loved so much!
My husband - fresh out of surgery and quite loopy -
had me laughing with a rendition of Groundhog's Day :)

 Jeanette's challenge was similar in that we three - Barb, Jeanette and I - 
asked each other 3 questions and created our card based on the reply.

Since Barb was my partner, this is what she said:

1.  What is your favorite season?  Spring!
2.  What is the first word that comes to mind when I say the word fun?  Friends!
3.  What is your favorite embellishment to use on cards?  Ribbon!

Such a sweet theme, Barb!
You made this month's card easy!
 I chose my Hello Bluebird stamps for 2 reasons:
It's a springtime stamp set and it has 3 little animals friends ♥

For the friends element, I colored the bunny, lamb and kitty
using my promarkers.
Spring is represented by the springtime paper called Welcome Spring
by American Crafts and I've created little hills with it.
Finally, the ribbon was tucked behind the trio as green grass.
I stamped a sentiment onto the cardstock from another stamp set.

Thank you, Barb, for your wonderful answers ~
it was a lot of fun to create this card with YOU in mind!
 You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here. 

I'm up for next month ~ and need to put my thinking cap back on!
Stay tuned! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

We are actually having a summer here and have not seen any rain for a couple of months. The grass is now yellow and I have to water my pots of flowers every day. It has been 29 - 30 degrees (C) and next week even hotter!! Big hugs and blessings, Carol S.xxxx
