Challenge #132 - Word Prompt "Spring"




Welcome back to Inkspirational. This time,  it's an easy one, be inspired by the word 'spring'.


Please meet our Guest Designer:

Trina




Hi there.  I'm Trina and I live on the West Coast of Canada in Vancouver with my husband.  I was drawn to this paper crafting hobby in 2005, but it wasn't until this time last year when I started my blog that I became obsessed with card making.  *lol*  Time sure flies when you're having fun.  I love making all types of cards from interactive to CAS, but lately I am loving CAS.  I'm really enjoying being part of this crafting community and am excited to be guest designing here for this challenge.  
You can find me at:

And now for some ideas from our Design Team :





Kim





Sadly this will be Kim's last challenge with us after almost 3 years at Inkspirational. We are sorry to lose this fabulous crafter and all-round lovely team-mate and wish her lots of luck.
