Crazy4Cocoa#16 Think Spring!


I can't believe it's Tuesday already, but here I am with another Crazy4Cocoa challenge card! This week our theme is "think spring" and I don't think there's anyone out there in blogland that isn't ready for spring! I know I am!
I used the Sweet'nSassy Gardening Cookie digi image because spring always makes me think of planting gardens and getting outdoors. I think Cocoa left a wee bit early for spring break, so Cookie mouse is filling in. Isn't she cute with that little bow in her hair?
I hope you'll grab your Cocoa/Cookie stamps and play along with us this week! There is a prize for playing along this month too - you can win 3 free digis of your choice! We look forward to seeing your inspiring creations!!
Take good care and have a wonderful Tuesday! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in and say "hello spring!"

Carol, This one is soooo cute. I was planning on using the same image. We'll see how this one turns out for me. Not as good as yours I sure, but that's OK. If I work very hard I can aspire to be a great as you some day TeeHeeHee. I love the acrylic gemstones. they bring it all together. I also love that Nesti set and it goes so good with this particular image. The orange/blue color combo is great. Well off to do our taxes today, so it may be a while before I get to crafting today. The sun is out here this morning, hope it is peeking through at you also.

Love this-the background paper is a refreshing change from pastels! And love your ribbon treatment too!

Hummmm, Think Spring, what a clever theme! Wink, wink! If the ears and curly tail count as circles, you can enter it at Joan's!

Oh my, how cute is Cookie Mouse. Love this image with the flower pot. Gardening sounds terrific! Lots of tulips trees, Bradford Pears, and such in full bloom here. The weekend is looking awesome..may even be 80 degrees one day this weekend. Hold on...Spring is coming.

This card says - A LOT! I'm kind of craning around the old flower pot, myself! {"Where ARE you, SPRING!"} I let our horses out for the first time in SEVERAL days, and even thought the ground is practically melting from all the water - BOY, were my guys HAPPY! There's plenty of green grass, we just need MORE sun and a smattering of flowers!{Please!} Hee Hee LOVE, love, love your darling creation and, AND, A-N-D color WORK! *gasp!* Yee haw!
