Welcome Back to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  We have been experiencing some odd weather in our area.  I am not really complaining.  I do not mind having little snow and rather warm temperatures for January.  My mind has begun thinking of Spring.  That is the inspiration for this week's design.  When I was looking for a stamp to use this week, this beautiful cardinal and flowers reminded me of when all things started to bloom and the birds return.  This card features stamps from the Cardinal and Posy collections.
