Spring Blooms!

Pin It
Spring is finally starting to show it's lovely blooms!

All of God's little creatures are singing His praises.

The frogs in the wetlands.

The herons roosting in the trees.

The eagles soaring through the sky.

The deer are back now that the trees and bushes have buds.

Today a couple even were peeking in the window this morning.

Perhaps because they could smell bacon.

My wonderful husband made the most magnificant brunch!

Poached eggs over english muffins.

Crispy bacon.

Sweet cherry tomatoes with tasty olive oil and cracked pepper.

Fresh fruit salad with drizzled honey.

Someone was very, very happy

and ate ... and ate ... and ate!

And my heart smiled.

Welcome back Sunshine!!

We missed you!

Live Simply. Love Much.

This sweet card was inspired by two design challenges:
Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday and
The Cuttlebug Spot.
Papertrey Ink's challenge this week is to make a card
with a partially embossed element.
The Cuttlebug Spot's challenge is to use twine
as a design element.

The top layer of this card was partially embossed
using a Swiss Dot impression folder.
The bottom 1.5" were left untouched and then
hand-punched using a Martha Stewart doily punch.
Twine was wrapped around the layers and
finished with a Papertrey Ink Vintage button and
a sweet little vintage postcard image from
the Graphics Fairy.

I love the Graphics Fairy!!  
So many darling images - so little time.

I also love Papertrey Ink's buttons and ribbon and felt!
used the same image to make a gift tag. 
I think I'll make a matching card to go with it.
Don't you love the sentiment?

Live simply.  Love much.

Live simply. Love much dear friends.
