Spring is on it's way!

Good morning! Wow! The weekend sure did go fast. Now it's back to work.

I did get the chance to play with my stamps this weekend. Mostly for design team stuff that I can't show you yet, but I did get to play with my new papers and made this fun card.



The weather was so nice here yesterday it just put me in the mind of spring and what does spring bring us? Flowers and butterflies. So nice to think that in a few short months Spring will be here but until then, I'll just have to make cards to remind me.

I saw these cute little flowers on Danni's blog, Danni's Doodles and just had to try my hand at them. They are so simple and cute. They're just a series of circles with the edges distressed and sponged. Then they are layered with a dimentionals between each layer. I added the button just for a little extra. Isn't this card fun? It's going to one of my coworkers who is having health problems. She's a really sweet lady and I miss having her around. She's gonna love this for sure.

Stamps: Think Happy Thoughts. Paper: White, So so Sweet (the paper studio). Inks: Turquoise. Extras: Border & Butterfly Punch (Martha Stewart), Ribbon, Scallop Punch,Various Circle Punches, Dimentionals, Sponge, Stickles, Buttons.

Our nice weather is over and it's rainy today and will be for the next couple days but I'm not complaining. We need the rain to bring the flowers and besides, I made a nice big pot of chili yesterday and we're gonna have it for lunch today. Hope my work buddies like it. Nothing better than a nice, warm bowl of chili on a rainy day.

Hope your having a great day! Thanks for stopping by! TTFN

My goodness I have just been looking at all your recent makes, you have been so busy and every item is very unique including this lovely spring card.

I also love the white and red heart card, the 2 colours make each element stand out so well
