Spring has sprung!

Hi, Friends!

It's May and spring has finally sprung around here.  We've been anticipating warmer weather and lovely blooms.  Mother Nature finally granted our wish!  I have a few more photos to share.  They aren't the best for we are having a very windy day here.  But, just the same it's wonderful seeing the gorgeous trees and flowers bloom!  Also, I have a birthday card to share that I made for a friend.

Ok, now on to my card...

I made the above birthday card for my friend, Nancy, for her birthday next month.  She loves the color purple.  I recently purchased the MFT kit and went to town with these lovely flowers.  So many possibilities with this fun kit!  Everything on the card is from MFT except for the gems.  I'm entering this card over at Seize the Birthday

Well, that's all for now.  I'm not sure when I'll be back at my blog for we need our son to look at the computer.  Hopefully he'll be able to repair it without much trouble.  Anyways, thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Isn't it so wonderful to finally see some flowers when you look out the windows? We have had such a late spring here, too... actually, we may just skip spring entirely, because it's already up in the 90's here. Your yard looks amazing! And love that gorgeous card, too!
