April Showers

We, in southern California, continue to have our April showers. This is the most rain we have had, thankfully, in years. So today's card was inspired by the May flowers I hope to see.

I used a new flower from the $1 bin at Michael's. The kit comes with 9 flowers, each with multiply layers. What a deal! This card is went to a teacher pal I got to work with yesterday. Hope it makes her bday complete. Enjoy!

Hello Spring!
The family has spent the last 2 days in sunny Palm Desert getting our tans on. Whoo hoo! The desert in the spring after the rain we have had this winter makes for a beautiful scene, filled You thought I was going to say cactus!
Today's card is a welcome to spring flowers.
My watercolor is coming along (thank for the support!)
and I have used this really cool woven/cut out ribbon I got at a garage sale.
The tag is tied with floss that is punched through the paper and tied around the "stems".
I am quite happy with this....and spring.

Super simple layout, pretty paper, cute image and a bow. Bada bing!

I am loving the 5 inch square cards. The image was colored with watercolor pencils and paper pieced. This card is going out to my aunt Ann who was just diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had surgery on Monday. Hope this brightens her day.
