Challenge 5 - First Signs of Spring

First of all, let me apologize to anyone who reads my blog for my tardiness lately. I have had a few things to deal with and have not been keeping up with my Blog...sorry about that, I will try to do better.
Today is the launch of Challenge 5 on Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog. It is my turn to set the challenge. As I said I have been a bit down and this time of year I am always desperate to see the first little shoots coming up in the garden with their promise that Spring and Summer is on it's way. I hate the cold and wet winters, and it certainly has been very cold of late,  so what better theme to cheer us all up than something looking forward to Spring. For the First Signs Of Spring Challenge I am asking for a Double Z Fold card from the cardmakers among you, and an item concealing something that indicates the coming of Spring for the non card makers, by that I mean perhaps an exploding box containing Spring items or something along those lines.
The sponsor for the challenge is The Stamping Boutique, who are kindly donating a prize of the winner's choice of 5 digi stamps. The winner will be chosen by the design team. Head on over to the blog to check out the design team's examples.
