Bright Betsy's Blossoms


I really wish that spring would arrive here in Minnesota.  We have rain, mixed with snow, and Tornado warnings today.  Is that crazy or what?  I just keep looking out the window, and wondering if my lilacs will bloom this year.  Last year we got a freeze just as they were blossoming, and all the buds and blossoms died on all the trees.  I have seen ice on the branches so many times this week, I just don't know if the buds will survive again this year.  I always have looked forward to the lilacs blooming for my birthday in mid-May. 
Oh, well, I least I have plenty of blossoms in my stamp room.  I have been so busy making cards this week for my display board.  We are having a big event this weekend, our Spring Fling, with our upline, Kay Kalthoff, and the demonstrators in our group, along with their customers.  This is the first big stamp camp we have had, and we will have 47 people in attendance.  We have card making and scrapbooking projects that are to die for.  I can't wait to show you next week what we will have made. 
Meanwhile, I am trying to make a couple cards from as many stamp sets as I can.  I started off with a goal of two cards for each set, but I think I have to put that aside for now, 'cause I have too many stamp sets, and not enough time left. 
This card is one of my favorites, made with Betsy's Blossoms stamp set.  I have to admit that I cased it from Andrea here, 'cause it was so fabulous that I just had to make one.  I changed it up a little bit in the layout so that I could enter it in a challenge today at Clean and Simple Stamping.  Hope they like it, and you do, too.  Come back later and check out what else I've made.
