Happy Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring! While the sun is shining brightly today, the temperature doesn't feel too spring like...but that's OK, I'm sure before we know it everything will be blooming and turning green...my favorite time of the year! I love to decorate my antique buffet for each season, so I created this banner to celebrate spring.
The Tea Party papers are just perfect for spring, and I used many of the pretty patterns from that pack. I used my Big Shot along with the Serif Essentials Alphabet, Beautiful Butterflies, Daisies #2 and the Button dies. On the background for the letters "P" and "N" I also used the Polka Dot Texturz plate. The only stamp I used was the hummingbird from the Dream a Little hostess set. To embellish my creation I used the celery & saffron ribbon from the SAB ribbon bundle, Button Latte and Soft Subtle brads. Here is what it looks life on my buffet.
Unfortunately I do not have all my other Spring/Easter decor out as we are waiting for our new flooring to be installed. I was hoping it would be done today but now we're looking at next week. We pulled up our carpet over a week ago while my hubby was off and I'm growing tired of walking on plywood. lol Oh well, it will be nice when it's done, and worth the wait I'm sure. I'll try to post another photo showing my buffet in all it's spring-time glory after our floor is done.
Think Spring is also the challenge posted today on the Stamp Something blog and I think my banner definitely qualifies. :-)
Have a wonderful weekend!
