Happy Spring card (for Exploring Cricut and BBTB2)

Happy Monday!  Did you have a great Easter?  We had such a terrific day with beautiful music at church, a big cookout with the extended family, and lots of chocolate after the Easter egg hunt!  I think it's possible I actually ate too much chocolate (gasp!)!  The post-Easter diet is starting immediately.  So, on to more crafty type topics….

It looks like there will be some gorgeous spring days this week, so I have a springy card for you.  The BBTB2 challenge this week was to use a cricut bird and the Exploring Cricut challenge was "It's a Spring Thing", including a flower.  I used the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge for my sweet little singing bird, flower, and bee.  The print papers are from American Crafts.

Stretch Your Imagination-bird cut at 3 inches, flower cut at 3 1/4 inches
Paper-American Crafts Color Crush 6x6 pad for prints, CTMH solids
Ink-Stampin Up Lucky Limade, Versamark Jumbo Java chalk ink for edging
Ribbon-American Crafts
Stamp-Inky Antics Ducky's Eggs set

I hope you all have a wonderful week with some fun and craftiness in it.  Hope you make some projects to share with these fun challenges!
