First Sign of Spring

These are the first to bloom in my year.  Or should I say this one? 
Just one lonely Iris Specie plant came up this spring.  The other greens are dandelions. 
Those are a bigger sign of spring in my yard!
This is about 4" tall and the bloom last a good week, unless it freezes. 
It's raining steadily today, but I don't think we'll get snow, or freezing temps.
I am so ready for warmer weather!
This is my handcrafted sign of spring.
A bunny "wreath" for the door.
I made this with a garland length of grapevine. 
I did double layer rings for the head and body.
The ears I bent carefully, soaked overnight in water then tied them
into an ear shape and left them until they dried.
It's all wired together.  I need some moss to glue on over the wire. 
Always hide the mechanics of how stuff is put together!  lol
I needed to get it hung and a photo taken yesterday in the sunshine,
before it got grey and gloomy and wet.
The pink tulips were from the dollar store.  The beaded spray was
a candle ring I had already, and cut apart to use.
A burlap bow and it was ready to go.  Well, I need to add the moss yet. 
It's not stamping, but it sure makes me happy when I walk in my door.  :)

Card in a Box - Sweetie Pie

This is a fun card style to make. 
I like easy cards that have a wow factor, and this one sure does.

I made these for my downline team members using
the new photopolymer stamp set, Sweetie Pie.
The greetings were created in My Digital Studio.
I'll have a tutorial for how I made this card in a box soon.
Nope, not a video yet! 

Happy Stamping!

April 3rd annually celebrates National Find A Rainbow Day.

A little bit about rainbows:
A spectrum of light in the form of a multicolored arc, appearing in the sky, is caused by both reflection and refraction of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere.  These rainbows always appear directly opposite of the sun.   The light is refracted (bent) when it enters a droplet of water, then is reflected inside on the back of the droplet and refracted again when leaving it.
Red is the color that is visible on the outer part of a rainbow and violet on the inside of a “primary rainbow“.  Many forms of airborne water can cause rainbows including, rain, mist, spray and dew.
Within our research, we were unable to find the creator or origin of National Find a Rainbow Day, an “unofficial” national holiday.
Well how about that?  
I love rainbows.  I don't think I'll be seeing one today as we are cloudy
with a chance of sleet and snow.  It's April, right? 
So, I decided to make my own!
I used the Ticket punch and stamp images from Gorgeous Grunge and Perfect Pennants.
I'm off to find another rainbow.  :)
Happy stamping!
