Happy spring 32

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, March 12, 2015 @ 7:38 AM | ,

Hi there! It's that time of year again when many of us have spring fever? I know I have been bitten by the bug ~ have you? The Major League Baseball has kicked off spring training baseball games here in Phoenix, both Angie and Meredith will be on spring break next week, the temperatures are in the 80's, the sky is blue, so many plants and trees are blossoming and allergy season is in full swing! Once can't help but have spring fever even here in the desert! With spring in mind, I pulled out one of my all time PTI stamp sets and made a couple of cards along with a combination of pretty patterned papers from a couple of Pion Design collections including: Vintage Wedding, My Beloved Son and Paris Flea Market:
One of the many things I love about Pion Design papers is their versatility and how easily they can be mixed and matched.
I even dusted off my stash of Copic markers!
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the retrosketches sketch challenge:
I was also inspired by the card Concept challenge to create a Clean and Layered style card: 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
