Happy Valentines Day and a Fantabulous Cricut Weather Forcast

Howdy friends!  Happy Monday and Happy Valentines Day to all of you - it has been gorgeous here this weekend and we are expecting more beautiful weather this week!  Speaking of weather - this week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut happens to be about weather!  How about that?! 

Your challenge is to create a project featuring your favorite seasonal weather (i.e. sun-summer, leaves-fall, snow-winter, rain-spring).  We've been so cold here, very unseasonably so, that I decided that I'm ready for some pretty Spring weather!  Check out what was going on in my Studio this week:

I'm so ready for convertible top-down, flowers growing, birds chirping, Spring weather!  I made a topiary using a pot that I had made about a year ago at my local art studio.  We painted the ceramic pot, then Mod Podged paper pieces on it.  I then used craft foam to put inside the pot to anchor the stem, and more foam for the ball of the topiary.  I made paper flowers and cut out some bugs from Walk in My Garden cartridge.  A bit of hot glue, and voila!  Hope you enjoy and if you have any questions about my project, please let me know.

Now it is your turn.  Make sure you post your project on this week's Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut!
