Signs of Spring

 Click on the photo to enlarge it and see the flower charm
 When you live in a place where there is snow, like my old home in New Jersey, when March rolls around you find yourself looking for signs of spring.  That's the crocus.  They are gorgeous and they are making their appearance on front lawns all over the Northeast. 
I almost miss seeing them.  Almost, but I got a great surprise from Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  This week we are sponsored by Paper Garden Projects who supplied this beautiful digital image.  They've got lots of beautiful images to choose from, have fun, go shopping, pick up something to use for this week's challenge.  Here's the inspiration photo.

fell inspired?

don't forget the inside
There's so much in this one little photo to inspire you.  So sit back and relax, think about it for a little while then get your supplies out and play with us.   After you've made your card or project don't forget to link it up on Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog.  You may be the lucky winner of a $20 store credit to Paper Gardens Project but everybody is a winner this week because they are offering a free digital cupcake stamp to everyone.  How great is that!  So click here to see what Paper Garden's Project is giving you.

I am sorry to tell you that I can't put the deets here today.  I'm on the road and left my list at home.  If all goes well I will be back to edit this post.  If you leave a comment saying you'd like to know what something is, I'll get back to you with an answer.
