a breath of spring




I feel so bad for all of you that have been hit with the Arctic Blast....this card is for you:


When Kimberly was over the other day, she RAK'd me a ton of goodies, (Thanks again Kimberly), including the new Basic Grey Fresh Cuts 6x6.  I knew that I wanted to put together a springy card!

Definitely NOT postal friendly, but that Prima bloom was perfect for the papers I was working with.


I was going to stamp a sentiment but decided to use my "Glow in the Dark Thread" that I picked up at Restoration (on sale, love the neon) during the holiday's to suspend the Jillibean veneer.

Super love this 



I'm also linking up to



In keeping with my "Use what I have"....

My card base is one of those 5x7 cards that you buy in mondo packages
Need to quit hoarding those fun Jillibean sentiment veneers

gorgeous card Amy and I was sure it was for me as I sit here and write this it is -15 but with the windchill it feels more like -36 or so the weatherman says. I am staying inside today.

Your card is very cheerful and that flower is just perfect, as is the neon thread! Definitely a card that will make someone feel very special! Thanks so much for sharing!

Will you make a winter storm to help the ski season? Looks like winter may return, but it's been far too spring like here. Fabulous card.
