 . . . and a WARM hello to you!  Thanks for poppin’ in – I hope this spring card will bring hope of things to come ~ yes birds, flowers, warm breezes which we do not have here in the east right now.  A friend is in the hospital and I thought this might cheer her up.  I played with my new-to-me Party Pennants bigz die (I’ve had it for a few weeks ~ picked it up when it was on the weekly special).  I don’t know about you, but I can hold out a long time for items over $30 – but I’ve wanted this one ever since it came out.  Sometimes things are sweeter when you have waited a long time to get them.  I got the beautiful Painted Blooms dsp free for booking workshops – it is prettier in person – and the Something Borrowed dsp is very versatile (great for workshops better 012because you get 4 sheets of each pattern).  Of course the butterfly is from Butterfly Basics and the matching framelits, greeting is from A Dozen Thoughts embellished with Petite Petals. Joni was before me – hop back if you missed her lovely entry and Sandy is next.13471523b

Welcome to our color blog hop – you should have arrived from Joni’s blog and to continue head on over to Sandy’s blog.  I’ll have to keep this short – I am still recuperating from my daughter’s wedding.  Getting back to the real world is taking some time – which includes crafting.  This is not one of my favorite creations, but will work for a Valentine’s card if needed.  Petite Petals, Seasonally Scattered, non-su embossing folder were 010LIZ RoseHues_381605035b (1)

Today is a special day  . . . it is my first born’s birthday and it is also the day we go to the flower warehouse to pick up a huge order of flowers for her wedding – which is fast approaching on Feb. 7th!  Soooo, tonight and tomorrow we will be flower arranging day and night – my house should smell very fragrant!  I cased this card from Gayle Wheeler,  Joni’s blogsite was before me today ~  keep hopping to continue to Sandy’s blogsite.  This card features Flower Flourishes & Bloom With Hope (how appropriate for the day), and Sweet Essentials (retired).  I used Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler (cs & blendies) and Whisper White (cs & ep).red 002
