Hello Again!!

Well, hello everyone, I'm back from a stamping hiatus!! Not by choice though, the flu bug found me and took over just about everything in my life! I don't usually get the flu, if anything I get a mild cold and then I'm done. Humph, not this Spring. Its taken me 3 weeks to get over being sick, I finally felt close to normal on Monday, so here's hoping this cough finally disappears and I'll be back to my old energenic self in no time. 

We are beginning to enjoy Spring here in Alberta. The weather's been fantastic lately, the snow is mostly gone and I keep looking within the rocks and grass, waiting for the first few plants to start poking through. What better time than the present to make a Spring like card? :)
Today's card share uses the beautiful (almost retired!!) Sprintime Vintage dsp, along with Rose Red and Very Vanilla cardstocks. The leaves were stamped with the Build a Blossom stamp set, then punched with the Blossom Petals Punch.  The "ribbon" along the bottom was punched with the Ribbon Punch.  I used "Oval All" for the sentiment, along with the oval punches.  I just love the large Rose Red  button in the center of the flower, I do think I'll be hoarding these buttons, they are SO pretty!

Thanks for dropping by and hope you have a great Thursday!
