Just Rite A Breath of Spring


Hello All ~ I forgot to post this card at Easter. It is one of my favorites, so I am posting it now. Of course I used Just Rite Stampers A Breath of Spring Tulips. I used Metalic White cardstock from Paper and More, my favorite cardstock. The DP is from Lilac Avenue, which I purchased from Sharon Johnson's store. I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals Nestabilities and Scalloped Nestabilities for the background of the Tulips. I colored with my Copic Ciao Markers. The tiny butterflies are punched with yellow sparkle DP from Hobby Lobby and I got that mini punch from the Dollar Bin at Michael's. (Don't ya just love Dollar Bins)? The Swiss Dot ribbon also came from the Dollar Bin at Michael's and I slipped that through one of Spellbinders Labels. I used SU's Perfect Plum ink for the sentiment, which came from High Hopes stamps and the Pebbles came from Robin's Nest. You can click on the picture to get a better view.

The weather here has been absolutely glorious in the 40's in the morning and the 70's in the afternoons. Yesterday I spent my morning watching my great nephew, Tyler, play baseball and of course my great niece, Elsa Grace had me "wrapped" (she always does have me wrapped). She and I blew bubbles and walked and talked during the game. Great fun! The most wonderful part is the fact that I can tell they love me so much. I am so very blessed!!!

I would like to request a favor ~ Please say a prayer for someone I love very much ~ His name is Paul ~ and he just lost his brother who was the father of 4 young children. My prayer is that God will give Paul the strength to move on with his life and that those children will be able to know God and grow in the way the Lord would want them to. Thank you all for your support!!!
