Happy Spring!!

Ahhhhh Spring!!  How I LOVE Spring!  This is Spring Break too and so the kids and I have been enjoyed the park and being outside and today we even went to the zoo!  I got so excited every time I saw a tree that was blooming!  I'm sure my kids got tired of hearing me exclaim every time I saw the white blooming trees but my they are soooo gorgeous!! I can't help but be in awe of such beauty!  Thank you Lord for such a beautiful creation!

So, today's card is inspired by Spring.  By life.  By new life!

This color combination is one of my favorites secretly. I say secretly because I don't use it very often but I ALWAYS admire it.  I need to use it more often though!  It just makes me think of robin eggs in the trees.  {Big Sigh}. Such a picture of peace and joy.

Isn't that large ribbon fun?  Really I built the card around the ribbon.  But, don't tell anyone. LOL!  I found this at Hobby Lobby.  Guess what?  You get a whole 5 yard roll for $2 on sale!  And yes, they do have other colors too.  You'll see some of those later (although on a smaller sized scale).

Well, I hope you are enjoying some beautiful Spring weather where you are too!  It wouldn't quite be Spring in Kansas though without lots of wind.  Let me tell you.  It REALLY feels like Spring in Kansas!! LOL!! Yep! Lots and lots and lots of wind!  Sometimes I wonder why I even bother fixing my hair!

Well on that note, I hope you have a wonderful day full of God's blessings which are new each and every day.  No. Matter. What. :)

  4. I see little white Easter bonnets and gloves...
    little white purses and patent leather shoes...
    when I look at this card:)
    I love it!
    The colors are fantastic...and I adore the ribbon!
    Secret...I'm addicted to Hobby Lobby's ribbon section. I have an entire drawer full...
    and yet I always add more.
    Then I hoard.
