Pinwheels for spring

 I'm thinking spring today, and snow is reported for tomorrow.  I can't wait for March to come, because then it's that much closer to spring.  I just had to get my little Pinwheel sizzlet die out along with the Cloudy Days EF, when I saw that Less is More Challenge 107 was looking for "up in the air" this week.  This is the closest I will get to up in the air when the wind is blowing like a blizzard here in Minnesota.  Maybe with enough pinwheels, we could blow this snow away. 
I thought it would make a nice birthday card for March, when we start imagining spring coming.  The Late Night Stampers Challenge #211 is looking for birthday cards this week.  I got the color inspiration from The Fab Friday color challenge 12 to use Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, and Wild Wasabi,  and the layout came from the Stampin Celebrations new February mid-monthspiration sketch challenge.  All wrapped up in one little spring card. 
And, while I was busy making this post, my little Olivia was busy getting into trouble.  She was unpacking the diaper bag, pulling out all the diaper liners, then she took her little doll and laid it on the diaper like a bed.  When I turned around and said "what are YOU doing?", she pointed back at me with "Duh!", and a look like "what are You doing?  Aren't you supposed to be watching ME?"  She is so much fun to play with these days, now that she actually spends time playing with toys instead of just dumping them out and moving on to the next thing she can dump.  Got to love those babies :)
