Spring has Sprung

So I joined a new site which I am just loving..  This is a great site for doing different kinds of swaps and not just cards..there's everything on there.  So I've joined in on a few card ones so I've made some Easter/spring cards to show you..but first...some challenge blog updates

Lollipop Crafts is featuring our sponsor Just Some Lines who's offering a $15 Gift Card for this week's anything but a square/rectangle challenge which is hosted by moi.  You can get all the deets here...

Sarah Hurley has a new challenge this week and WOW! are the DT inspiration pieces ever gorgeous..the theme this week is MUM's the projects for your mom (It's the UK mother's day this weekend).  You can find the details here

AiFactory has a new challenge this's Bright as Day so all your fun bright colored projects can be entered this week.  Check it out here

Now on to my cards...

the theme for the swap was to create a card with yellow as the primary color.  I love how this turned out..using inspiration from one of my magazines this month.  The DP is Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry Lemon Meringue Pie...The Hello Kitty die was a Christmas present from a swap that I did and the stamp is from my stash.  The buttons are as well.  I did ink around the edges using some marigold ink but you can't see it in the picture.  The ribbon is from my stash.
