April Showers Bring May Flowers

Good Morning fellow bloggers,

I hope everyone is doing well. Susan and I have been hard at work in the craft room cranking out card after card. We have had TONS of great response to our Mother's Day cards and are SO happy for that! Contrary to the weather here in North Texas, we have been quite cheery and springy between the two of us, and the card we have for you today is JUST THAT!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lawn Fawn as you all know, and I received this flower set as a prize from them. I have not had much luck in deciding how to use it until recently. After blog hopping and discovering pinterest.com, I came up with this fun springy card inspired by TCP Tuesday's Challenge 153 using Yellow, Orange, and Teal. I also loved that I was able to use the fun "gracias" stamp sent with our most recent order of Lawn Fawn products! I love having different ways to say "Thank You" on our cards...especially when we are turning out NEW "Thank You" variety packs!

 Anyways, it is nice to spice things up a bit here at High Notes Ink. We also are excited to enter this card into the VERVE Diva Dare where you are asked to make a card based on the title of this post - April Showers Bring May Flowers. I think that this card really channels the inner flower power and it just makes me think spring...even though it has been quite rainy here lately - but then again...the flowers are not supposed to come until MAY, and the saying does begin with April Showers...so I guess it is all going according to plan!

With that being said, keep your umbrellas handy and your stamps inky!
