Spring Has Finally Sprung!

Today was the most BEAUTIFUL day and I do believe that SPRING has finally arrived! Not a cloud in the sky, no wind (that's a BIG deal here in Nebraska lately!) and temps in the 70's! It was heavenly! I spent the afternoon outside cleaning off my flower gardens and even found a blooming tulip! Life is Good!

This morning I had a great time at our monthly Stampin Up get together at Mandey's house. We have such a FUN, jocund group! :) Check out these super cute and springy cards we made. I especially love this smiley face "happy everything" flower from the Greetings Galore set. I even have this set and forgot all about it. Now, you'll probably be seeing more of it in the next few weeks! :) We also got to use the new "flower fusion" felt flowers. Cool!

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for blogging by today! I didn't go into detail about these cards since they weren't my original creations. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Smiles, Pam :)

hi pam

Lovely cards - and the flower's face is so cute!

I have a good extension for your "quote for today".

Smile - it's contagious :-)

(so being around other happy people you can't help but "catch" their smiles and happiness!!)

Hope you're feeling "back to normal" :-)

It looks like you have a fun stamping group. The smiley flower is so you. Congrats on the tulip. I'm so happy that I found my lilac bush has buds this year for the first time. Flowers are such little miracles.
