{citrus tree studio "spring fling" crop!!}

Hi everyone! Spring has arrived in upstate New York! We have robins! Daffodils have poked through! Temps are supposed to be in the 50s this week-end! It's all good stuff! :) :) To celebrate Spring, Citrus Tree Studio is having a "Spring Fling" crop. There are many fun challenges and awesome prizes! I was invited to create a challenge for the CTS crop. My challenge is this -------> Create a set of springtime cards. {a set being at least 3} Design, colors, embellies - your choice. :) All that is required is that the cards be related to SPRING. I created a set of cards from jillibean soup's blossom line.

{thank you for all you do} {friends are the sunshine of life} {smell the flowers}To hold my springtime cards, I made a box. The box pattern can be found here. I first saw this box at my friend Mara's blog and loved it!!! {thanks, Mara!}

Hope you'll have some time this week-end to stop by Citrus Tree and chat & check out the challenges. Another little something to note --- Cindy at Citrus Tree is having a call for a new Design Team for the summer and fall!!! Her kits are super if you think you'd like to be on a kit's an opportunity for you!! :) :)

Have a great week-end!!! I'm off with the hubs and my brother, sisters and mom (there are 14 of us all together) to attend an NHL game {my first}. We're all driving to Detroit for Friday night's Detroit Red Wings game!!! {My nephew is a goaltender for the Wings - his name is Jimmy Howard. He is my older sister's son.}

HAPPY SPRINGTIME to you!!! hugs, patti

Patti, your cute little box is so...well, cute!!! So glad you tried the box pattern. It's so easy. And I LOVE the cards, love love them. I just got some of that Jillibean paper and you are making me want to ignore my kids and create some cards with it.

Hope you had a great weekend!
