A happy hello to you! I am over the top happy because Spring has arrived in my world; here in St. Louis. The daffodils are blooming & the red-bud and ornamental pear trees are showing their gorgeous colors. The weather has been unseasonably warm (70s) & so I've been able to put the convertible top down. In my world, it doesn't get any better.

My card today was my swap card for monthly club this past Friday. I used all Stampin' Up products except for the half pearl & the white cardstock. I strictly use white Neenah papers, both heavy weight & regular weight. I got the idea for this sketch, somewhere on blog-land or on Splitcoaststampers, but I don't recall whether this idea came to me as a result of an inspiration or if it is more of a copy.

The colors are Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait. I love the Blossoms punch and the Mixed Bunch stamp set from the SU! Occasions Mini Catalog. I have used this set and punch so much- and I see new ideas every time I'm on-line. On top of the punched flower is a 3/4" circle in Poppy Parade topped with a big half pearl. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the sentiment aligned. The sentiment is from the "Just Believe" stamp set.

Have a great day, Hugs,

Marilyn
