Spring Time Card with my Favorite Colors and Die cuts

Happy Monday!!
I personally love Mondays, because they are my day off.  Yesterday I spent some time with my parents, while my children went to their cousin's swimming birthday party.  I took my mother to the antique store!  What a fun visit!  I will be sharing my creation with other Make it Monday fans.
I had some time today to play today and found a few challenges to enter this week.
  For the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown wk 90: Spring cleaning I used one of my favorite Bluebird die cuts, some pink buttons a tiny doily flower and one of my favorite embossing folders.  The papers are all ones I created in GIMP, and these are all scraps of my favorite pieces. 
The Paper Play Challenge for week 12 is spring colours, which is perfect to enter this week!!  Paper Sundaes: Spring Blossoms is perfect for my creation too.
Fashionable Stamping Challenges Spring is in the Air , is another perfect challenge for me to enter this week. They ask that you use a STAMP for all of their creations.  I am going to clean up my studio and find all my stamps!!  I used my favorite background stamp that I drew and carved myself to use on the lower half of my card.  I used Ranger's Peeled paint distress ink for my stamping.  You can see all of this in the close up below.  
The Bluebird die cut (one of my favorite images from the Graphic Fairy)and other pieces were all cut out using my Black Cat Cougar which I purchased here.  I just love the Black Cat Forum.
I distressed all my edges with Old paper Distress ink and added some Perfect Pearls in Perfect gold around my embossed piece and tiny pennants.  I used some pop dots to elevate my "Tweet" and my little pennants.
I thought I would also share some of the weirdness that goes on at my house.  Here are my two boys, goofing around while I am trying to get photos.
 LOL..noticed how I spelled WRONG..."WORNG"..I guess I will face palm myself now...LOL.  

Have a fabulous Day and thank you for visiting!!
