Hi Sandra
That's a lovely sunny card . . . just right as Spring is on the way! Love the look of your new flower dies.

Thanks for coming over to play on the swings. I think we'll have a few G&T's up in the Treehouse later! xxx

Hi Sandra! What a smashing card - we had sunshine here today and your card is so perfect for lifting the spirits. January seemed to be such a long month. Love the dies you used and the little bow is so adorable! CAS is nice to make a change I find - even though it can actually be as, or even more, challenging to achieve. You knocked the ball out of the park Playground kiddo!

Your pretty snippets birthday card reminds us that spring will be here soon! I love the clean look of your design, Sandra, and how you added lots of interest with the scalloped border, bit of bling, and sweet little ribbon! Thank you so much for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

Love how you used the dies in the opposite manner. Really cute. And the bright yellow is the perfect color. We are having rain today too. But this is very unusual for February. We should be getting snow. Well, I am not complaining. You don't have to shovel rain.LOL

I can almost feel spring looking at your card. I love how you have used cut out left behind from cutting the dies. Now you have two to use on another card. Hugs Mrs A.

It is a beautiful design with the pretty flowers against the sunny yellow. Kinda makes you forget about the cold for a minute.
