W2SB Challenge #15: In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb

Welcome to the new W2SB Challenge for March!  This is Annie, your guest host for this month :-)

"In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb"       
by Lorie Hill
March roars in like a lion
So fierce,
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.

The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear.

March is always an interesting and unpredictable weather month.  I'm sure we've all seen snow, wind, hail, rain, and sunshine at some time during the month.  There are a lot of options for your weather-themed projects and we can't wait to see them.  Or, if you'd like to use a LION or LAMB, please do! 

The I-Teamers have created some amazing projects to help inspire you. Our Guest Designer on the I-Team is Erika.  Her winning hashtag card in January was perfect for the theme and this month's card is just so bright and happy! Love how she incorporated the rainbow's colors in her patterned papers.

Penny's card with the colorful, tumbling umbrellas and wonderful sentiment is sure to wash away those rainy day blues! 

Sybrina's cards always tell such wonderful stories and this one is no exception.  The sun will always shine...sometime!  I'm crazy about those embossed clouds and the sun rays!

 Bobbi went off in a different direction, a sunburst card!

Greta went with the lion for her inspiration, and boy oh boy, is this a handsome masculine card! Love all that fabulous texture.
And, for my card, in my neck of the woods, it is always puddle stompin' weather in March.  But I don't mind...I LOVE rubber boots - especially wild, colorful ones!

Oh, did I mention it's also my birthday month!  Well, because it's my birthday, I feel like offering a little birthday present to the winner of this challenge.  How about a $15 gift certificate to The Stamps of Life?  Sound good?  TSOL carries adorable stamp sets, matching dies, great cardstock, and other great products.  The winner of this Challenge will surely enjoy a little shopping spree:-)

Okay...go play in the snow, rain, or sunshine and show us what March weather means to you!  Have fun!
