A TASTE OF SPRING

Hi All!!! WOW!!! I cannot believe how fast this week went by!!! I have been really busy the last few days, but a fun busy since I was teaching workshops!! We really had a good time and I got the chance to meet several ladies who had never stamped before (can you imagine??!!) but now they LOVE it and we already have another get together planned for later in the month.  I love meeting new people!!  So, today I am going to share a card that we made in Club using stampin pastels chalks.  It was nice to break  them out again, they are really are great to use!  The stamp set is one of the Occasions mini sets called Abundant Hope and I think these flowers just scream Spring to me and well, I think we are all ready for Spring, LOL!  I used the designer paper from the Occasions mini set called Shades of Spring,  Such soft, pretty colors in this paper. The sentiment is from a set called A Little Somethin' which has fabulous sentiments that fit perfectly with our punches!  Love that!  This card makes me happy because it reminds me of the start of warm weather, and all the flowers starting to bloom - my garden is starting to come in and the first one to bloom was a daffodil!  Now, off to finish getting ready for my scrappy gals group to come and make a fun spring layout - can you tell I am sooooo ready for nicer weather??!!  I know we needed the rain, but that is all it has been doing for two months so some sunshine would be nice!  Thanks for stopping by, I love it when you do!  Enjoy your weekend and I will be back Monday with something fun to share!
