Hi, There!

I now see some buds on the trees, lots of robins, and daffodils!!  Happy!  Happy!  So this card that I made today fits a few challenges.  I love the greens of Spring - never more vibrate than at Spring.  All the colors are a new lease on life renewed!!  Amen!  So I hope you enjoy this card that I have added on my blog.  Till next time, thanks for springing by - Hugs ~  CaroleAnn
