BLOOM where you are planted!

Bloom Where You Are Planted!

Today, the sun is actually shining on the Southern Tip of Ohio! It is not raining...Yet. That’s right...I say YET. It is suppose to rain today again, as it has every day for the last several. I guess it is the rain that makes everything pretty and green and gives us all the beautiful spring colors. Okay, we can take the rain in exchange for that.

Today, I’m posting a card that is all about the spring, whether it be spring of the seasons or the spring that blooms in a person. All the paper, except for the designed paper, is SU. The butterfly is made with vellum, cut twice, and made using a pearl headed stick pin in pink, pearl, green & blue beads. The bloom stamp is from the Michael’s $1.00 stamp bin. Not sure where the flowers came from. I have way too many flowers in my flower draw to even figure out where they all came from. I used the half circle punch and ticket punches making this card, too.

Hope you enjoy my Saturday post. I’m off now to do some necessary things outside, while it is not raining. My solar cover needs cleaned so I can put it on the pool and get the water warm. They are predicting 80 degrees here for next weekend, which sounds wonderful. My daughter turns 18 next Monday, Memorial Day, the 26th. It has gone so fast, and I figure I am going to have a rough week handling this. Keep me in your prayers! Okay, go out and enjoy the day. Take advantage of the sun and a day off. Thank you for stopping by, and do it again, please!
