Kitchen Sink Monday

This Monday I wanted to play along with some of the wonderful challenges posted by members of the Kitchen Sink Crew in the Kitchen Sink Forum this week. My first card today was made for Connie's sketch challenge as well as Julie's Word of the Week Challenge. The word is spring!! What beautiful spring weather we have been enjoying in Texas these past few weeks so what word could be more perfect?
