"OWL Always Love Spring" kit

How are you all? I feel like it's been awhile since we've interacted (then again...that's all my fault)! I hope you are all having a wonderful spring. I just love spring (however I feel like it is short-lived in Arizona). I have never experienced a TRUE spring - the one that I read about in books where the snow begins to melt and the animals come out of their warm homes. Because we live in the desert, the spring I experience is the sudden sound of crickets, or seeing ants on sidewalks, or warnings that the rattlesnakes are out again. But what I do love about spring is seeing the green leaves begin to grow on trees again. It is seeing green grass stems start growing from our lawn. And this year, we have a great supply of jasmine in my backyard planter box. I have enjoyed cutting it and putting some in vases throughout the house. And each morning it is so cute because Claire comes and sits by them and smells them.
Spring to me is symbolic of starting fresh...a new beginning...a new life. So, take advantage of this wonderful season. Enjoy the outdoors and nature around you. And I don't know about you, but I have not been a huge stickler with my New Year's Resolutions. I guess now is the perfect time to re-commit!

For my Spring kit I decided to jump on the bandwagon of the owl trend! I didn't think that I would finish it in time for Easter, but since I happened to be a night "OWL" last night, I threw in some Easter egg elements. Have a good Easter and enjoy your Spring!

Summer, Summer, Summer! You never cease to amaze me, lady!

I just ordered new checks and they have owls, too. It's just something about them that I can't resist. And, I was needing a fresh kit for Spring/Summer freebies for The Frilly Coconut!

Look forward to some coming out soon:

Wow, this kit is gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing. I live in Russia and we have a traditional, snow-melting type of spring. It is always so exciting to see the grass again after it's been covered with snow for months.

I am loving the spring weather too! I live in So-Cal so I've never experienced a real spring either, Spring usually means Santa Ana winds:)
Thanks for this new kit, as always I love your designs! The owl trend is one of my favorites!

Amanda said...

SOOOOOO egg-cited to see your NEW spring kit Summer! It's BEAUITFUL as are all of your creations!

Lovely photo of your baby girl who is getting so big!

Happy Easter to you and your LOVELY family too! We had a HUGE family picnic planned for Sunday here in Northern California, however, we are in the midst of stormy weather and snow levels are predicted to drop to less than 2, 000 on Sunday! This will be a first that I can remember in my half-a-century plus of living!

Love and hugs,
Linda :D

We are having a lovely spring here in south east Michigan. My daffodils are in bloom and my tulips are budding. Of course they don't compare with your jasmine. I don't understand the owl craze but I love this kit. Thank you.

Erin said...

So adorable! Thank you!

Ashley Welling said...

I love it! The colors are exactly what I have been looking for. I especially love the owls!

I live in Utah and experience the Spring you are talking about with the snow melting and the animals coming out. Let me tell ya, I would much rather experience an Arizona spring. My brother-in-law lives down in Phoenix, and ever since my first visit a year ago, I have fallen in love with the city. I would give anything to move down there.

Many people say, "It get's so hot down there." I know! Isn't it great! I love the hot weather, and hate the cold.

Susan said...

Thanks so much! I love ALL your work!

Shell said...

Hi Summer - I live part time in Arizona and I know about those beautiful jasmines!

So, this comment is on a WAY old post, and I don't know if you'll ever see it. But I used this kit to make some images for my blog, and I thought I would send you the link. I won't be putting this up as my blog background until March, probably, but I'm so excited about it I didn't want to forget to say "thank you" and let you look! :)
Hope you like it - the button on the side bar links to your blog, if I need to credit you in some other way as well, please let me know and I'll fix it before the layout truly goes 'live'. ~Virginia
P.S. Deleted the other comment 'cause I forgot the link. http://gigitestblog.blogspot.com
