Spring has Sprung and A Trio of Cards

The sun is out and its warming up beautifully outside. The daffodils, irises and snow drops are popping up all over the yard. All but a few of the geese and ducks have now left the lake to head north to their summer homes.  Spring has definitely sprung here at the lake!

Yesterday I enjoyed a day of scrapbooking and card making. It is so nice to spend the day with like minded crafty people. I even managed to get a 2 page spread done along with the cards and started on an Art Journal but that's for another day.
Distress inks and stencil on whisper white card stock.
The sentiment is one of  Suzanne Cannon's new Quietfire Design stamps.

Added a bit of colour with markers.

And a photo of Taag and Jada after they decided that the chair is big enough for the two of them. They had been fighting over it all winter. Peace at last! :)

Thanks for the visit!
