the bohemian spent the lovely spring day crafting artist trading cards for a friend's round robin book... and being thankful that the new snow had melted away. again. for the last 4 days she has seen snowfall out her morning window. and everyday it has melted away by afternoon. kinda like Camelot, no? the bohemian loves the layering to be done on ATC's... this last green "nature" ATC has a plastic fern-y thing that has been laying around in the bohemian's junk drawer waiting to be used. she just LOVES it when something like that jumps out of the pile of junk begging to become part of a work of art!! hopefully Spring is arriving in your corner of the world... snow-crystals-on-crocuses wishes to you all.

obviously there will be no gardening done in these garden boxes this day in bohemia! although the bohemian did wander by and pull out some old weeds. but, alas, the birdfeeder is snow-covered and the strawberry basket is frozen. and after a moment, the chill wind sent her scurrying indoors to the warmth of her woodstove fire.. oh see! the valiant rhodie bud clinging to life under the chill of its snow blanket... but the bohemian mountains have been love, love, loving the snowfall! and look... there on the windowsill! something wonderful is about to happen... Ruby amaryllis wishes to you!! keep hope in your heart...kite-flying weather is coming!

the bohemian awoke to a startling scene outside her windows... it appeared that the fairies had come in the night and frosted every tree and mountaintop with freshly fallen snow! what does one do when suffering a severe bout of spring fever and yet awakening to such a scene? pull the covers up to one's nose and stay abed? no, that would be a waste of a rare sunny day! but baby, it's cold out there! so one stokes up the fire in the woodstove and hunkers down in the cozy depths of one's cottage and sighs a big sigh... (make sure there are fat fuzzy socks on one's feet!) and thankfully whisper a gratitude prayer... because the sun is shining and the snow is glistening like diamonds and the coffee is hot, sweet, and strong. mmmm........... frosty white sparkly wishes to you all today! may today be cozy and full of contentment for you....

the challenge was to use a very old or never used stamp. this basket stamp was among the bohemian's first stamps ever... but the flowers in the basket and the "bloom" stamp and the paper punched strip and the polka dot paper... those are from her current stash of things she loves, loves, loves! wishes and hopes for loads of spring blossoms to burst forth near you soon... don't forget to "bloom where you're planted"!!
