Springtime Flowers Card

Hello! Can you believe it's Thursday already? It's been a full and fast week for me...what about you? I've had quite a bit on my plate with our son. He's having a rough time at school, End of Grade testing and he doesn't like April. I know, what's not to like about April? I hear you! He's autistic, as many of you may know, and what can I say, he doesn't think April is very cool, or his birthday that falls on the last day of April. I never would have guessed that a little boy wouldn't like his birthday? He actually enjoys the day of, but the days leading up to are somehow very stressful for him. It's been like that for the past three years. Anyway, hopefully we'll get back on track soon!

I have a card share for you. I made this fun card last night with a new digital kit from Two Peas in a Bucket.


These colors are so bright, happy and yummy, don't you think? This kit is called 'Sunshine & Rain'

by Jen Martakis. There are also adorable clouds and umbrellas included in this kit that you must check out!


Polka dots, stripes and flowers...oh my! I used three of the flowers and this large flower circle together to make my focal point.


I used a simple Spellbinders

circle die cut for the center of the flower, a Fiskars

scalloped border punch and look at this fabulous crepe paper trim! I found it on Etsy! It's just too fun, don't you think?

Well, I'm working on another card with another equally fabulous and fun digital kit right now, so I'm going to get to it. I hope you have a terrific day! :) Kathy
