House Mouse Monday Springtime Challenge

Good evening to all, I hope all is well with you.
This week over at the House Mouse Challenge Blog, the theme is Springtime. Participants are challenged to create based on what comes to their mind when thinking of this terrific season.

When I think of Spring, Bambi always comes to mind. The whole movie sort of embodies, or perhaps helped mold?? my ideals about Spring. Beyond fancy Disney songs about April Showers and becoming "Twitterpated," which is the basis for my image selection... everything is renewed and restored, blossoms everywhere, new life all around, it's a beautiful time of year. Bunnies abound, birds nests full of freshly hatched chicks, BABIES!!!!

When I was younger, my brother and I believed that if you blew all the fibers off of a dandelion, you could make a wish. My dad will tell you otherwise: you can make a yard full of weeds... Psssshhhh.

Please feel welcome to leave a comment, I truly enjoy feedback.

Breathtaking!!! This card screams Springtime:o) I absolutely, positively adore it!!! It is no secret that you put a great deal of love into the creation of this beauty, especially cutting out the baby carriage. That would have taken me forever, and it wouldn't have looked half as good as yours. Your coloring is all the windswept dandelions and your adorable image!!! I also love all the elegant ribbons and pearls. You have created a stunner with this springtime beauty:o)

Thank you for joining us this week!!!! Enjoy your weekend, and I hope you will be joining us next week:o)
