Thanks a Bunch



Yeah!! This week's Mojo Monday sketch didn't have a skewed panel!  Can't complain too loudly though as my card from last week was graciously included as one of the finalists :)  Thanks, Julee. 

Still on a polka dot craze and  managed to sneak some hearts in as well - can't give up on Valentine's Day quite so quickly LOL!

It's been a while since I've used some flowers and butterflies on a card so I decided it was time to change that.  A little breath of spring to brighten my day and hopefully yours too.

Busy weekend ahead running kids around, but also making sure I don't over do it as I don't want a relapse of this horrible bug!  If all goes well, may be able to sneak a little workout in - gotta keep on track with my fit and firm at 50 :)

Thanks for popping by today and wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Gorgeous card - shabby chic but with a good sense of co-ordination, not just, 'let's stick a jumble of stuff on a card!' Love it.

Great colors and I love how you layered the flowers! Beautiful!

Fantastic layered flower and leaves! Thanks for the reminder that I haven't used those dies in a while and that I haven't done that sketch either. Maybe that will get my mojo going! Thanks for inspiring me!!
