Spring & hop......spring & hop!!!

I love spring time....everything is fresh and new.
Everything comes alive and blossoms.

Can you guess I made a springtime card? 
Yep, my Mama passed away in 1984 and she is missed dearly!!!!
I digress.....back to my card.

I wanted to use Gingham Garden DSP because it just screams SPRING to me.
You are seeing front and back of the same piece of that not delightful.

I also used So Saffron card stock for a layer and I distressed it.  
I stamped the coffee cup from Perfect Blend (The cup is two pieces....I stamped the lid section and flipped it upside down to create the inside of the cup with water in it), the flower from Happy Watercolors and 
the greeting from Really Good Greetings clear stamp set with Black Staz-on.
I colored all the images (very lightly) using the ink pads: Baked Brown Sugar and 
Strawberry Slush and my aqua painter.

I love how this turned reminds me of 
when my kids were little 
and they would bring me the first flower (or weed) they found outside and I
would always take it to work and put it on my desk in my office.  
Most of the time I didn't have a vase so I would just use a coffee cup. 
It was more gorgeous than even the most beautiful bouquets 
from a high end florist. 

Here is the list of beautiful flowers you need to see in this hop
in case you get lost.  I'm the caboose, but you may want 
to go back and see them again....right?

Crystal  You are HERE

Until later, blossoms........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!!
