BBTB2/Spring

Welcome to BBTB2 and our Monday challenge.  I am the hostess this week.   We've had an unusual cold snap in Phoenix and surrounding areas, and after the temps dipped to the low 20s and the frost burned all of the tree and plants, the cold wandered away and Mother Nature gave us temps in the high 70s and a few 80 degree days.  Only in Arizona!... I know that so many areas have battled frigid brutal temps with snow in abundance so I decided I would pick a theme of Spring.  It's gonna come sooner or later so let's honor it with some pretty spring cards. 

I used April Showers for my card.  The birdhouse, the cute little bird, and that darling little caterpillar are from April Showers as is the title "Tweet".  The edge has been punched with a MS punch, and I added some MS butterfly and flower punches as well. Everything sits upon the usual embossing.  I added a few little ribbons for some bling.  



We love it when you join in our BBTB2 challenges.  Create a new spring themed card or project, upload it to Mr. Linky, be sure to name the cartridge (must be a Cricut cut for the theme) and give us a shout out.
Thanks for visiting....  Happy Monday.

OH HOW SWEET IS THIS?! Liove the bite-size critters! This is so cheerful and makes me long for spring. We have 18 inches of snow on the ground from the storm and I think more is coming this weekend. ��
