Anyone who knows me understands that I am a kid at heart and I LOVE the wintertime with its snow and crisp mornings and the "Narnia-feel" to the landscape. But I also love Fall. And Summer. And Spring. So despite the fact that I fully expect a few more flurries and at least one more dose of true winter weather before Spring really hunkers down to stay, I am thankful for the 'promise' of Spring.
My front yard still has a 3 foot depth of snow and the snowbanks at the end of my driveway? They'll be around for a while! But we have had 3 consecutive days of (near-balmy) plus zero weather and some sunshine. Things are starting to melt and you can just feel nature dying to break forth in all its glory.
And I cannot help but feel excited myself. Like I, too, am anticipating newness and growth. Like if I hold my breath and just wait for it, life will burst forth in a dazzling display of colour.
So here is my Thankful Thursday card today. Thankful for this feeling of anticipation. Thankful that we are continually rejuvenated. Thankful that the colour and majesty of Spring are soon to be on our doorstep.....
I resolved today to use some things from my repertoire that have seen little use of late. So I dusted off my Delicate Doilies sizzlit, my Beautiful Wings embosslit, and my Papillon Potpourri stamp set. ALL of which are items that I truly love - but have scarcely used in the last 12 months!
The card is simple, relying mostly on solid, punched pieces and only 2 colours paired with the Vanilla neutral. But it still whispers in my heart that Spring is on its way.
And you? Are you looking forward to Spring? Or does that even require an answer...... ;)
Hope everyone enjoys a day that brings them hope and the anticipation of things to be thankful for!
God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
