"No Spring Skips Its Turn"

It is the second Wednesday of the month and that means it is time
for a new challenge at Words 2 Craft By.

Our quote this month is by Hal Borland...
"No winter lasts forever, no spring skips its turn,
April is a promise that May is bound to keep,
and we know it."

You may interpret it any way you wish.

What could represent Spring more than a daffodil, a chick, and a bunny?
Perhaps lots of beautiful flowers?!?!?

I have had this sweet image for several years, and am ashamed to
admit that it has never seen ink before now. 

I have so many lovely stamps, dies, and papers that have never
been used, so with (I hope) unwavering conviction, I will attempt
to resist all temptation to buy any more supplies until I 
employ much of my existing collection.

Last year I popped into a Spotlight store for some new bathroom linen, but
it would have been rude of me don't you think, to not pay a visit to the art 
and craft department also. There was a huge box of 12x12 paper that
was discontinued, priced at 10 cents/sheet! Much of it was 'yucky'  
or damaged, but on the very bottom there were 6 sheets of this 
lovely, heavy quality paper, all in pristine condition. I
bought all 6 sheets, plus several other very pretty 
sheets. Who doesn't love a bargain!

A close up look at my floral arrangement. I made the large orange
flower from white crepe paper which I coloured with Distress Inks.

The mushrooms are cut with dies from a set of 3, and coloured
with Promarkers.
