CSS Group Spring Has Sprung!

Hi everyone and welcome to the CSS group spring has sprung hop!  You should have arrived from Kay's blog but if not, be sure to head over to Stamp TV to start at the beginning, you don't want to miss a thing!!  
For this hop Carolina challenged us to make a Spring card, flowers, colors, birds, bees, etc.  The day I made this card it was snowing, and not just flurries, it was coming down pretty darn good!!  So I had to go with this sentiment from the Stamp it BIG! set.  We all have days when we have to "force" ourselves to smile and that was one of them!  :)  One of my favorite spring flowers is lilac so I went with that color and used my Parisian Garden paper pack, love all the purples in this paper!!
Next on the hop is Melissa!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
