Let's Make a Spring Scene - KSS

Today's Let's Make a Scene design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps is a card I make for Mother Mark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge #554 over at Splitcoaststampers last week. One of my cyber stamping friends has been battling some serious health issues in the past few months, and the Teapotters (of which I am one) wanted to cheer and encourage her with cards of her favorite type - scenes!! Well, they are my favorite, too, and hers is one of the sweet cyber friendships I have made and hold dear over my years on the internet.

So here is the card that went in the mail to Tonda this week! It is an expanded version of the card I made last week. Today's card has an added peek out the kitchen window at the bluebonnets growing in the yard!

The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye. The window die is from Poppy Stamps, and the small jar die is from Stampin' Up.  I used part of the crocheted edge from an antique handkerchief to trim the tablecloth and a bit of twine around the jar.

The Kitchen Sink images come from the following sets:

Color Recipe for the Bluebonnets:

Layer 4 Stampin' Up Blueberry Burst

Layer 1 Stampin' Up Barely Banana (tips of flowers only)

Leaves and Stems - 
Layer 1 - Stampin' Up Old Olive
Layer 2 - Stampin' Up Mossy Meadow

I have one potted bluebonnet that is just beginning to put on flowers, so it won't be but another week or two before the fields along Texas roadsides will be filled with them!!!

An interesting fact about bluebonnets, when they have bloomed out (in about a month) and go to seed, you can actually hear the seed pods pop open scattering seeds for next year's crop.
