  5. Love your card. I like spring because the weather is just right. I am pretty picky and don't like being hot and don't like being cold so spring is a great time of year. It's just right.

  15. Nice card. I'm seeing so many great spring colors that I can't decide which is my favorite! I think green and orange are winning.

    Spring means that school is almost over. That's very important for a teacher! (Less than fifty days of classes left!) Thanks for the chance at blog candy.

  18. Adorable card! Definitely makes me think of spring! As for what it means for me: it's sad in a way... 3 of my hubby's 4 deployments have been during spring...so they get lonely. Anyway - as a military wife I must say thank you for helping OWH keep families together in heart despite being apart because of duty.

  32. What a beautiful card; so bright & cheerful! Besides that, green is my favorite color! I also love the others on your blog. You pay so much attention to details & your man cards are great! I see we like so many of the same companies.
    I love spring!!! The rebirth of the bulbs that have been waiting to blossom is just too cool! I can't garden anymore due to my disabilities, but I can still drool over other's gardens & offer them advice on how to have color all year long!
    I'm also a hopper & my daughter is a soldier, so thank you for helping with OWH! We are so appreciative of anyone who is involved with this awesome organization!

  49. What a fabulous, spring creation!!! I love the vibrant colors and the lovely papers. You asked what spring means to me...it means warm weather..sunshine...seeing nature begin anew...and golfing.
