Butterfly Mornings and Wildflower Afternoons

Sorry for the lack of posts the past few days...I've been sick, busy with my school's musical, and feeling the winter blahs big time. I'm trying to hang on until spring break...

Isn't this sentiment just perfect for spring? I don't know about you, but I am definitely ready for more sunshine and warmer temps. I'm itching to get outside and take a long walk with hubby and our pup.


I combined several challenges for this card:
Laura's Sketch 46, Flutter By Wednesday 98, and Color Throwdown 81. Hope you like it!

Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Egg Hunt (PTI)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, PTI white

Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip

Accessories: EK Success embossed curve border punch, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Nestabilities blossom, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, SU ribbon, Kaisercraft pearls

Beautiful card Ann! This may be one of my favs of yours. Well, I don't know.....lot's of your cards are pretty amazing! I'm so sorry you've been sick. I hate to be sick in the winter time. The cold, the blah days and sick on top of that really bites. I hope you're better really soon. I myself can't wait til Spring either. Believe it or not, we've had snow way down here in the South like 5 times lately and I'm beginning to tire of it. Sending you warm hugs... :)
