Feeling like SPRING!

I'm so over winter!  Now I can't complain because winter has been mild here in northeast Ohio this year.  We haven't had as much snow as we could have - but I'm still ready for spring to arrive.  Even last night as we were leaving for church I told my husband how much I am looking forward to sitting outside in our yard swing reading a good book and listening to the birds chirping.  It's so relaxing!  Of course the sad thing is that our kitties sit in the windows and cry cause they want to come outside too - but they can't.  They are strictly inside cats.

Anyway - first things first - I have an announcement!  I'm now on a design team!  Can you believe it?  I sure can't!!!  Tomorrow will be the first day for me to post a card for it...so I'm not even going to say which one yet....you'll just have to wait and see!   Honestly, I never thought I would ever do anything like that - never thought I had the talent for it....but when I saw the call for new design team members, I thought why not....and they said YES!  I'm super excited about it and hope I can do a good job for them. 

So on to my card for today.  Spring is in the air and since I'm still working on the Rainbow swap cards - today was yellow.  It's such a happy color isn't it?  Once again I used a stamp set that I loved when I saw it - and bought it - and never used it.  It's not one of the oldest ones I have that haven't seen ink, but since I was doing yellow it was perfect.  The stamp set is called Spring Tuplis from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I colored the tulips with my pencils (I still love coloring with pencils).  The base was embossed using a Darice embossing folder and the paper is from an very old paper pad I had - I think I bought it when I first started stamping. 



I'm submitting this card for the following challenges:
