Sweet thoughts of Spring

I don't know about all of you, but I am definitely ready for Spring. I want to try and get you out of this rainy, dreary state; and help you start thinking of Spring! Easter is in late April this year so there's plenty of time for any projects you wish to tackle! The stamp set above is from Ippity. Isn't it so adorable?  I think there are so many ways to use this set to celebrate Spring!! Below is a fun project using the set.
