Inspiration Avenue and Web of Whimsy: Springtime!

Spring is a whimsical season, and I.A. has asked for "springtime" pieces, so I am again combining these two challenges ;-)

Here is a punny springtime card, with the caption "Even On This Rainy Day, With You 'Tis 'Fairy' Fun To Play!"

I use the very/fairy pun quite a bit in cards (and I believe I've used it, in differently worded ways than above, with past I.A. submissions) although I always make sure to use a different image each time I riff on the fairy theme. Perhaps I should start spelling it "faerie" on some cards, as I know that is considered a better spelling.

In any event, considering the deluge that California had to usher in its first day of spring, I thought a card showing a flowery yet rainy day would work for this challenge.

This is an adorable take on spring. Loved the idea of the flower acting as the umbrella, even as the rain is pouring down all around.

This is really cute and so appropriate with all the Spring rain we are getting.
