Spring in the Air?

Just a quick post today. My computer is in my room by the window, and the building caretaker is mowing the grass outside. I feel a sneezing fit coming on. And the bad thing is that the window is supposedly closed, but I can't reach back behind the computer to check. Despite the signs that my allergies are about to hit me again full-force, I am really excited for spring to finally be in the air. Lord knows we have had enough rain and cold. Despite the minimal snow, it was a rough winter.

I'm also in the middle of rearranging my Pinterest boards, plus organizing SU cardstock, so blogging today is meant to be just a quick break from all that work. So without further ado, here is today's card. I am submitting it in three challenges:

Simon Says: Anything Goes
SU Only Challenges: Spring is in the Air!
Cupcake Crafts: Cool Men

I love this colour combo. And Send Me Soaring has definitely become one of my favourite spring themeed sets. It's great for any age and gender. I have to admit, though, that next time I'm not stamping and cutting those clouds... I'm using my new cloud embossing folder from the Spring mini. Or at the very least, I'll emboss and then only do a few hand stamped clouds for added depth. Seven clouds was al lot of fussy cutting. I hate fussy cutting. LOL.

Happy Easter and/or Happy Passover to those of you who celebrate these holidays!

That's a cute card. I like the color combination also. I do a lot of fussy cutting, but don't think I've ever cut clouds. But I think the cut clouds gives it a special touch.
