Spring is blossoming all over the place

 
I stood looking out my kitchen windows this morning, and the sun was finally shining bright, and my lilac bushes are blooming which is the highlight of spring for me.  I could see the trees finally starting to fill in, and the bright spring green color is intense all around.  I can see the white blossoms on the apple trees and the pink blossoms on the crab apple trees, and it just about takes your breath away because the view is never prettier out my kitchen window. 
I have been taking my sweet little granddaughter out on the deck to feel the new leaves as they have been forming on the lilac bushes and the trees.  She laughs as I stick my nose in the blossoms and try to get her to smell the flowers.  I can hardly wait to spend the weekend with her exploring the woods surrounding our campgrounds where we are heading for the weekend. 
For my card I used Lovely as a Tree, Bright Blossoms, and A Round Array stamp sets. 
This card is not one of my best, but I just wanted to share with you my interpretation of the view from my window.  The Shabby Tea Room Challenge 167 is looking for cards with a window inspiration, and the Papercraft Star challenge 146 wants my interpretation on "what I find beautiful", and I just wanted to share my window view with them too. 
Take time to enjoy the spring view out your window today, too.
