Happy

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great week so far.     We are 'enjoying' another heavy snow fall but it's going to get milder and turn into rain later, a nice mushy mess.  Not pleasant for driving, so a good day to stay home in  my craft room :)  Yay!   I truly don't mind our winter, the snow is pretty, clear cold sunny days are beautiful to go for a walk and it's cozy inside.  My only issue is that they are a little too long, Spring is a long ways off.

I have a card to show today without purples for a change!   The colours actually remind me of summer and make me happy.



I used Tim Holtz products and the Circle Cluster by Designs by Ryn in the background.  

Thanks for stopping in a my blog and have a great day,
Shirley

Your card looks really happy with these colours, Shirley!
It looks beautiful and your resist background (I think) is super.
Winter hasn't started here yet :-(.
Love winter, freezing cold and snow, hope it will start Son, maybe next week they say.

What a lovely card. The butterfly is very nice. For being hours apart, I'm surprised that we go through the same weather patterns. Glad it cleared up over night because I have to drive to the next town to get my ear stitched up. My earrings went right through the hole and now there's not hole. I have to wait a year to get my ear repiersed. Have a great day.

Your snow sounds great for staying tucked inside.
Slush and mush are another matter ;-)
Your color combo speaks of new life budding in the spring to me.
Happy colors and a beautiful card for certain.

A nice textured background you created for the lovely flower and butterfly Dekoration. Wonderful also the pearls on the butterfly's body. I like that much.

Perfect Spring-i-ness for a snowed-in type of day! I love the vibrant green symbolizing new growth, especially with that lavish background and the butterfly flying freely! It's a beautiful creation, Shirley! We have only had 6 days of winter so far - and not really a normal "Florida" winter at all, because of how warm and HUMID it is! Sigh. I'm sure it is the new weather pattern, and we just need to realize that we now need to hunker down and have AC all year long. But it beats shoveling snow, right?

Hoping you have a great week-end! hugs, de

Perfect combination of flowers & butterfly--summery, gorgeous card, Shirley! Your backgrounds always amaze me! PS--love reading your comments--thank you so much. Must admit, my craft supplies were overflowing a basket within 2 weeks of learning about stamping! Now it's a disaster I must purge this year!
