Sunny Days to Come

But definitely not today! Our weather has been bizarre. Easter Sunday we had snow and woke up Monday morning to a winter wonderland. The trees were beautiful. I wish I had snapped a picture of them. But by afternoon most of it was gone. The storms started Monday night. Torrential rains all night long with lots of lightning and thunder. We had a bit of a break this morning and more storms this afternoon and evening, I am hoping that the weather calms down. It was a mild 65 today after the 28 we had on Easter. We are bouncing around like a rubber ball. The warmer weather put me in a spring mood. So I made a spring card today.


The poppy flower image is from Beccy's Place. It's a freebie image so you can go download for yourself. I printed it three times and added the sentiment from Create with TLC. The frame is made with designer paper from Home Basics by Recollections. I used Spellbinder's Inverted Scallop Squares and MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Square die-namics. The card base is red card stock. A pretty easy peasy card. I am entering these challenges:

I can hear the wind howling outside. I suppose we have another round of storms moving in. So far they haven't been too severe. No power outages or trees down. So I am thankful (that it's not snow!) Tomorrow is my day to go play with the munchkins at Head Start. My favorite time of the week! Have a super Wednesday and come back and visit soon.

I love your rainbow frame- and the beautiful flowers as well. The weather is sure wonky this year! We are supposed to have snow tomorrow- sounds like you are in the path of some crazier weather than ours! Stay safe and warm!

What a beautiful Spring card! I love how you framed the poppies and you colored them beautifully!
Wow, that sure was some crazy weather that you had! Our Easter started out a little chilly but soon warmed up to short sleeve weather. We had a picnic at the park by the river.
Hugs,
Pam

I love the sentiment on your card Donna, it's fabulous, and it works so well with all the wonderful bright colours you used. The lovely red frame coordinates perfectly with the red poppies. Gorgeous!
Cheers,
