My Sheri Craft #107 - Spring Has Sprung!

Welcome Spring!  I love this season!  At My Sheri Crafts we are celebrating Spring, so we were asked to "Create a card/project that says "spring" to you (i.e. flowers, sunshine, green grass, etc.)"  Now my first picture is definitely not a Spring item, but here's my story.  I had my Snowman collection out after Christmas and finally got it put away in early March.  I don't know about you, but every time, and I do mean EVERY time, that I put a collection away I find something I've missed a day to two later.  Well this year it was this little snowman spade:

I thought about taking it down to the basement, untaping the box and putting it away.  But then I decided the back side of it could be a Spring spade.

 Recently, I was given a bunch of vinyl scraps and I thought this was the perfect time to use some of it.

I covered the spade with white vinyl, then used cuts from Easter 2010 and Stretch Your Imagination to make this little spring scene.  I also added a few butterfly and ladybug stickers from my stash.

It's nothing fancy, but it was fun to make and I like the result.  I hope you'll join us with your Spring Celebration creation! 

See you again soon!
