Two Spring Surprises from Heart 2 Heart

This was a super fun week at Heart 2 Heart. Hope you all remembered to spring forward with the clocks. There was sooo much fun at H2H that I just had to take some inspiration from my friends Amy and Becca and give their cards a try. 
This card was inspired by Amy Moore. When I first saw her card it was a LOL moment. I told her that when I needed to LOL I would come and visit her card but then I decided to make my own. However, on my card my peep was so surprised about Easter that he just sprung up with one of those Adhesive Springs.

Then my friend Becca Whitham shared her card with springs in her butterfly wings.
Now, since I've been playing with those Adhesive Springs all week 
I just had to give those butterfly wings a try. 
So if you would like to win a package of Adhesive Springs just leave me a 
comment and your name will be entered in a random drawing.
Be sure to come back tomorrow for some more March Madness when 
H2H goes Green and there will be more chances to win some great prizes.
