Spring Softness

Morning!

Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start. This is going to be a quick post for me as I have my son home from school sick again and we are heading off to the doctors. Can this long drawn out Winter and all it's germs and sickness just be done already, please! Has anyone else had more sickness at home than normal? My son has missed so much school this year, I've lost count.

OK, my card....I made this card over the weekend using an image I colored last week, but never found time to do anything with. This is a SCACD image by Elisabeth Bell. I think she's perfect for a Spring time card or to bring a little cheer.

The sketch/layout is from this week's Friday Sketchers challenge with some BG Lily Kate papers. I've distressed all the edges and then embellished with flowers and roses and some ribbons and sticky pearls.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Creative Cottage: Flowers
Crafty Calendar: Flower Power
Your Next Stamp: Distressing

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope that life will return to normal soon and I can get around to visiting all of you. Have a great day!

Happy Stamping,

I really need to do more of it. Time just flies by. But I will be making the time to stop by more often.
