April Showers will bring May flowers (here's hoping). We had a very cold week in Ottawa this week. It almost felt like Spring was going to skip us this year. Yesterday, we woke up to an overcast day and rain on and off throughout the day, but the temperature felt spring-like.

April has always been my favourite month. Perhaps, it's because it's my birthday month, but April always brought warmer weather, brighter skies and happier days. It's so much easier to get outdoors and be active when the snow has cleared and the rain has washed away the dirt.

I have been waiting for Spring for so long that last month, I created Spring cards! The colors were bright and the stamps used reflected Spring activities. Another thing I am looking forward to is the new Stampin' Up Catalogue being released at the end of May. On April 4th, Stampin' Up announced that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalogue will include 10 new colours (most of which are returning In Colors from previous years)!  They are welcoming back some of our favourites, moving some colours around, and introducing one brand-new colour, so take a look!
