{CTD285} Some People Strengthen Others...

...just by being the kind of person they are! 

Isn't this a terrific sentiment?   Better yet, it was 50% off at Hobby Lobby and the original price was only $1.99!  What a deal!  

Today, I'm playing along with these beautiful *springtime* colors chosen for the Color Throwdown Challenge #285.   My base cardstock is Pear Pizzazz and I used Blushing Bride for the embossed banner under the sentiment, which is stamped and framed with Early Espresso.  The polka dot strip across the top is what I'm calling Sahara Sand.  ;)  

The BIG jumbo button is from a Tim Holtz idea-ology set I found for a bargain price on one of my favorite Facebook groups - Purge to Splurge Scrapbook Surplus.  You may want to check it out...some great buys and you can sell too if you want! 

The polka dot and the floral designer papers were taken from one of my new 6 x 6 mat pads by American Crafts - Dear Lizzy Neapolitan.

I'm sure you want to see the inside too. . .  left blank for a personal message, but decorated to coordinate with the front.

Is it feeling like SPRING where you are?  It's a lovely day here in Nebraska and I really should be outside cleaning up the yard after a loooooooong winter with unusually wild winds that have blown almost every corn husk from miles around into our yard and piled them up around the bushes and trees.  I know many of you have had record snowfalls and continue to see snow so I'm not complaining!   

Happy SPRINGTIME & Smiles to you!
