I don't think I have quite firm grasp on what is a "spring card"

Yup, still computerless. Life is unfair and generally sucks. You can quote me on that. So there.

The challenge on Stamp Something is Spring Something and I was wrecking me head trying to figure out how to interpret that. Eventually I just decided that cute kiddies are totally and definitely very springy (if that's even a word!!)

That's how I dived into my Phindy's images folder and came out quite victoriously with that lovely buterfly-chasing toddler. :) If you want a pure unadulterated CUTE, you just gotta make way to Phindy's shop - fab artwork with wonderful vintage storybook feel.
I coloured her with Copics and yes, I know, the bonnet went BAD but I really didn't have time to colour up a new image :( I've been working on making my first Copic colouring video and the good news is I am ready to share it very soon. On Sunday, to be precise.

Oh, and the grass was done with watercolours. Papers are brushed with acrylic paint (mixed up white, blue and TINY bit of green. Thus making a duck egg blue, lol
And that cute swirl - yup, from Make it Crafty, lol. Loving these laser cut chipboard shapes atm.

It's lovely, Annika! I found myself asking the same question regarding Spring...how do we know if its spring when it could be summmer..or earl fall....or, or, but Stacey assures me its all in the color scheme. Ok, but how do we know if its...oh whatever!
Great card, Annika. I look forward to your video on Sunday!
