Welcome Spring!

I am so happy that today is the first day of spring! The sun is shinning and I am full of spring fever--forget the fact that it is only 27 degrees out there. I even took my picture of my spring bouquet outside in the sun.

TGIF--that means it is Blogger's Challenge day too! Today's challenge was--you guessed--SPRING. When I got up this morning I saw this fabulous post on Latenightstampers about these really cool ribbon flowers, they were posted by Cathy Bell. I knew these could be made with paper so I thought I would give it a try. Mind you I did not spend too much time on these, but still think they came out cute. I could have made them quite a bit better with more effort but for a first try and a quick one at that I am happy with this. The flower vase is made out of a Crystal Light container. I put holes across the top with my Cropodile and strung ribbon through the holes, then finished off the top with a few more ribbon strips. These were fun, I am sure I will do them again!
