Tiptoe through the Tulips & an announcement!

I woke this morning to a much warmer day and lots of birds chirping...is spring really here when we never had much of a winter in NC?  Hmm...

FIRST, I have news to share!  Did you notice the new blinkie in my sidebar?? I am now on the Spectrum Noir first ever Design Team!  How Exciting!! The website isn't up yet, so stay tuned for more info!  Here's the rest of our uber talented DT so far:

So I thought I would share a very springy card this morning that I created for my Stampendous! Spring card class (this Saturday at Enchanted Cottage if you are local!)  I used Tiptoe Fluffles, one of my all-time favorite Fluffles stamps, but then again are there any Fluffles I don't like?  Nope!

I colored my sweet fat kitty to match this fun spring paper from 3 Bugs in a Rug.  The mats were cut with Spellbinders' Wonky Squares.  I even hand cut the top of the butterfly panel to mimic the top of the square.

How adorable is he??!  And here's the bottom of the easel card, which is what makes it stand up.  The sentiment is also by Stampendous! from the Narcissus Perfectly Clear set.

And last, a little peek at one of the butterflies that I cut with my QuicKutz for Lifestyle Crafts Tag It Kit.

Here's the colors I used from an inspiration photo at The Pink Elephant Challenge blog:
