Here is another card blog post from Sue!

Greetings ~

It seems like we have been waiting a terribly long time for Spring so making a few Spring cards might just fill in the gaps....for a while! I saw a Robin last week (which is a major event here in the frozen north) so the promise of Spring is in the air. For to-day's card I used the new release Dolls of the World - Holland. There is a lot of great images in that set...tulips being one of them and I couldn't resist. The lattice window is made with a nestability and some quilling paper for the actual lattice (since I am too much of a lazy cow to cut the strips out individually). The windmill was stamped in black, coloured with prisma pencils and a red stardust pen then cut out. A second set of blades is cut out and mounted on the first ones with foam dots. Flower soft is glued at the bottom to give it some dimension. Several tulips were stamped, coloured with stardust pens and cut out. The ones at the front are mounted with foam dots to give it a 3-D effect. The greeting was stamped on white, punched with a scallop edge punch and mounted using foam dots. We can only hope that a Spring project like this one will hold us over until the real thing arrives. Personally I think that rotten little Groundhog lied!

Happy Stamping
