Spring......

The last few days here have been beautiful........minus the congested coughing kid! The temps have been in the 60's and the sun has been shining....until today. A cold front is moving in and the temps are supposed to drop back down to the 30's. With snow. Snow? Really? Come on! Chicago! Mmmmmmph!

Since I am currently in denial that winter is returning......I created a Spring card! I used a Crafty Secret's Creative Scrap. I love these beautiful soft images! I love that all the coloring is already done.........such a time saver! I did add glitter to the image........because everything is better with glitter! LOL! The paper is Melissa Frances, Papertrey Ink, and SU! The ribbon is PT and the felt flowers are by SU! I did a bit of machine stitching too.....for that homemade feel!

...................*sigh*........................I love glitter.................... : )

I am heading back to work......Cort back to school. I know it is Friday......and I only have a half day. But she is feeling a bit better, and she misses school. She misses her teacher and her friends! So today we will test the waters. Her congestion is not totally gone......hopefully with all of the meds she is on, it will be soon.
I appreciate you stopping by for a visit! Thank you for all of your prayers for Cortney. It warms my heart! Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

I'm here as part of a blog hop and this beautiful card does not match the card I saw on the blog hop page. Am I in the wrong spot? This is where the link took me. I was hoping to get in on the giveaway.
