All the Thanks - Stampin' Up! All That You Are

   Has spring sprung in your neck of the woods yet?  The weather and temperature hasn't really been spring-like here in Central VA but the birds have started acting like spring has arrived!  We have bluebirds building their nest in the box with the camera so we've been watching them bringing in grasses and getting it just right.  They are so funny chirping back and forth and then rearranging what the other has just added to the nest.  We've named them James and Elizabeth after James and Elizabeth Monroe the 5th president and first lady.  We started our bluebird box with George and Martha Washington so we've just continued naming each successive pair after the next president and first lady.  Hopefully we'll see some eggs soon!

  While I don't have much growing in the yard yet except for a few brave crocus bulbs I have some nice bright blossoms on a card to share.

  I like the navy and gold color combo and added some brightly watercolored flowers.  The All That You Are set has beautiful flowers to color.  I embossed them all in gold onto watercolor paper and then played around with watercoloring in Lovely Lipstick and Melon Mambo.  I think I stamped about 9 or 10 flowers and just had fun coloring.  

  The sentiment is also embossed on gold and really pops on the Night of Navy cardstock.

  The texture is a bit hard to see but the Tufted embossing folder is a very elegant pattern in the background.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
