Spring and Flowers...At least in my cards

Hello Everyone,

Yup, day 4 of spring has come and gone and although the sun was shining, it's still cold and snowy out there.  Fight harder spring!!!  It's actually quite strange to see.  Over the last couple of days I have been able to actually see winter and spring battle it out with the local skies as their battlefield.  One moment the skies are blue and the sun is shining.  I'm driving around with the sunglasses on and feeling some sunny warmth on my face through the windshield and then the next moment, the clouds are filling the sky and snow starts falling and accumulating on the ground....only to have spring retaliate with the sun again and melting the new snow away.  I swear this cycle happens several times throughout the day.  Weird.
The family did Earth Hour tonight (Saturday) and it was fun!  We were at the grandparents for dinner and my girlies had a great time lying on a blanket in their solarium using binoculars to check out the planes flying overhead, singing pop songs and changing up the lyrics to funny ones and just being together.  My 2 year old was apparently moon powered tonight as the lights out phenomenon only served to fuel some hyper behaviour (more that ususal if you can beleive that!)  Good times.

At least there is some flowers and spring happening in some of my creations this week.
This one is using a Greeting Farm Anya Summer Stamp. The sunglasses made me think of me driving around this week when the sun was shining.  I'm hoping I can really help Spring out with some added sunshine power.  The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiments are from Autumn Leaves.  I would like to submit this to this weeks Double Take Tuesday challenge: Flowers over at the Greeting Farm blog and Anyone for Anya: Anything Goes!

This next card uses a sweet Whimsy Stamps image.  These stamps are just so cute!  The bunches of flowers she's holding and the colours are definately routing for spring to come.  I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
