I just wanted to start by saying thank you so much for all
your kind comments..  I read all your kind comments to my hubby
and He wanted me to tell you Thanks also..  You guys really are
The best blog buddies ever!!

Well it is Tuesday..  But not just any Tuesday. It is the first day
of March...  Already!  I really can't believe it.
I think that means its almost time for spring..

Over at City Crafter Challenge Blog we are all ready for spring..
Our Wonderful host this week is the very Talented Cheryl and that
is what she has come up with for our challenge this week..

Spring Fling!

It's a color challenge..  to get all the details you can head on over to


So here is what I came up with for this week..

I was so excited when I saw this challenge.. So much easier than
last weeks challenge.  And these colors are so soft and dreamy..
Thank you Cheryl!

This card includes all the yummy details I love to add to a card..

I got to use fun seam binding this week and my
little tag has just a touch of blue on it..

I colored my flowers with my copic markers..
I really do need to practice with these a little more..

To see what all the other DT have created hop on over to CCCB!
And this week we have the very talented Deb Hickman
as a Guest Designer..


Just to let you know my daughters shower went well..

She got so many gifts it was crazy.. 

Here she is with some of her girlfriends.

One of her friends made her cake.. It was adorable.
And so yummy..

I didn't get a whole lot of shots..  But if I get some more from family and
friends I will share them with you!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week..
And Thanks so much for stopping by..

Hugs, Linda
