As beautiful as the day...

This card is so bright and sunny, just like today! It's is springtime (happily) here today - in the 70's, sunny and nice! The only drawback is the high winds (well and lack of green trees and grass)!

I've been having a little fun with this flower punch I bought a few weeks ago. I have used it on several cards already, but this is one of my favorites. I punched right through the card in the bottom corner and adhered the patter flower on the inside of the card! That is working outside "the box" for me!!! I love the look! I sent this one to my great friend Toni for her wonderful birthday gift!

I took my birthday money today and went shopping at Kohl's! I bought a few skirts, a jacket and a few tops! Oh and a comfy pair of summer sandals! It was fun to go and try things on although most of the styles look awful on me! But I tried them to make sure, instead of just shrugging them off at the rack! It's always nice to have a few new things in the closet!

I have 2 ATC swaps that I need to finish by the end of this week and mail. They are both due around the first of the month. I'm having a HUGE problem with the "Where are you at?" one. I can't decide between Colorado and London (it does not have to be where you live) because I can't find the right embellishments for either place. It would be fine if I only needed a couple, but I have to make a minimum of 9. Ugh! I'm sure it will come together in the end. I'll post pictures when I finally figure it out!!

Hope everyone else is enjoying their weekend!!!
