C'mon Spring!

Doesn't this card just SCREAM SPRING?! I love these colors which were for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge yesterday. Summer sun, pumpkin pie and kiwi kiss. {yes, there is a little kiwi kiss on the leaves!} The background is a cuttlebug embossing folder called swirls and the designer paper is actually a piece of 'Frosty Day' designer paper from the SU! holiday mini catalog. A little punch flower with orange brads and white organza ribbon as embellishments.

Spring really is coming~ we have a few flowers showing their greens. And today the weather was warm and sunny. Yipee~ spring is coming!!

Happy "Sun"day

What a wonderful weather weekend we have had here in St. Louis. We ventured to the Botanical Gardens yesterday. Just sitting in the sun, listening and watching the birds, and smelling the good earth renewed me. We also had the opportunity to see the Orchid Show. So many beauties in all colors and sizes. Another treat was the camellias which were blooming in the Linnean House. Here are a few pics.

Still COLD here!

It is still really cold here- teens to twentys. I keep hearing it will be warming up soon; not soon enough! LOL SO to brighter your day (and mine) here is a springy gift basket and card. The pink metal basket was from Target's $1 bin. Although purchased with Valentine's in mind, my oldest daughter and I converted it into a 'less love, more happy' gift for a friend. What do you think?
