So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Spring with Mardi Gras Colors!

This was for the Cute Card Challenge of SPRING and for the For Fun Challenge of Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and yellow and also for Cupcake Inspirations. I just found this pansy stamp by Stacy and also used I Brake For Stamps and PaperTrey birthday stamp. I used that lovely Royal Velvet cs from PaperTrey with matching royal velvet ribbon. The yellow cs was from GK. The dp was Colorbok. I used Martha Stewart's lace punch and cut out with Spellbinders Labels 3. Added some pearls and Recollections Stickers. Even found a stamp from DRS for the enveloped! AND hooray...Spring is coming...BUT not tomorrow!! They are predicting snow again tonight and tomorrow -- wet and heavy...and HOPEFULLY this is about it! They say it will be like driving on MASHED POTATOES!! Oh joy!
