It's Your Day . . .

Hello my friends!
Has SPRING finally started to pop around your house??  It is here in Ohio (FINALLY) and I'm loving it!  The first part of this weeks has been gorgeous!!  (raining today)   Earlier in the week we spent the day power washing the deck and I can't wait to get the table & chairs set back up so we can enjoy our morning coffee and evening grilled dinners outdoors again!

OH and look what popped out yesterday!
It got up to nearly 80 degrees here in Ohio yesterday and ALL of my daffodils around the front of the house are in glorious full bloom!  LOVE those beautiful POPS of YELLOW ... makes me smile every time I look out the door or window ... SPRING has finally arrived!!  YEAH!!

 Anyways ... here's a card I made this morning since it was raining and I was stuck indoors.
(RIGHT!  Like I really minded being 'stuck' in my crafting cave! LOL!) 

This SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS image is called "Professor S" and she's being super sassy today all decked out in her red dress & heels!  Sassy Studio's is sponsoring the challenge at LOVE TO CREATE which is "White on White with a splash of color".  I also had the "Anything Goes" challenge at CHEERY LYNN DESIGNS in mind when creating this card.  I always enjoy playing along in the Cheery Lynn Designs challenges ... I love their dies! 

Here are the other items used on my creation:
Cheery Lynn Designs:  DL112 Exotic Butterfly Small, DL102 French Pastry Doily Die
Spellbinder Classic Circle Dies
Cuttlebug Swirls Embossing Folder
Zutter - Distrezz It All
xPress It High Tack Foam Mounting Tape
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
Offray Red Satin ribbon & White Satin Ribbon
2001 SU sentiment stamp/Versafine onyx ink

A few other challenges:

Hope you're having a fabulous day ... till next time and as always . . .
