Good morning, Friends! Have you been to the Create with Connie and Mary website to see Mary's Card "Create"tions preview? Wow! She even has a project sheet for you to download! I am so excited for this edition! I do hope you will join us as I am positive that you will love all the projects that the designers are working up just for our subscribers! 

I have to say that Nick is really taking FULL advantage of his spring break! I have hardly seen him since last Thursday! But I am so glad for him! I am so happy that he has such wonderful friends to get together with and that they enjoy doing physical outdoor activities as much as he does! No couch potato, t.v. watching, video games, "I'm bored" kid here! Love that about him! For me, I finally get my hair cut and colored today! Yea!! I always love to have that done! Then I need to shop for some necessary items to finish a few birthday gifts and then home to get some stamping done!

Today's card was inspired by the Seize the Birthday challenge. I also did this card for a recent swap that I participated in. Love the fun bright colors on this! And it's fairly simple to put together! I punched a strip of Island Indigo with the dotted ribbon scallop punch and adhered it to the back of a piece of Summer Smooches designer paper. This is adhered to a piece of Whisper White. Then I tied a piece of Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon around this. The sentiment from Friendly Phrases was stamped in Island Indigo and then the panel was adhered to a card base of Island Indigo. I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch in Daffodil Delight and punched it out with the Blossom punch. The flower center was stamped in Island Indigo and fussy cut with the paper snips. I added a brad and popped this up onto the flower. I punched two leaves from Lucky Limeade using the Blossom Petals builder punch and adhered them to the back of the flower. The flower is popped up onto the card. I added two rhinestones to the greeting - just because :) Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
