Spring Daffodils

 Happy April! You might think this post could be part of an April Fool's Day joke, but no....it's really me! My daughter came to me this morning with a horrified attitude and exclaimed that the last time I posted was in September of 2015! That is horrifying! LOL! Anyway, excuses aside, I am pleased to share a little spring creation with you. My daffodils are in full bloom and I thought this stamp would be the best choice for a few cheerful spring greetings!


 I got a really sweet email last week from a reader (hello!) asking me if I was okay. You really have no idea how much that meant to me and I promise I have intentions of replying. Thank you, thank you! I have been great and busy taking care of my sweet family. This year, with a preschooler and a kindergartner, have made things tricky with having any real length of time to get stuff done. I am constantly watching the clock to make sure I drop off and pick up at the right time. So...blogging has been put on the back burner, or better yet, taken off the stove altogether! Ha ha!



I chose to use lots of my favorite things on today's design; doily, sewing, vellum, sequins and baker's twine. Oh, and of course, coloring! I hope these cheer up their recipients! Thanks for fluttering by!

I just checked your blog this morning because I was thinking about you and wondering if you'd posted lately. Now, this afternoon there's a lovely post! :) Just beautiful. Both of my boys have the same preschool schedule, but it still feels like I'm watching the clock all day! LOL

A preschooler and kindergartner?!?!? wow, how did that happen? seems like only yesterday that they were wee tiny babies. it's a beautiful card, as always. glad all is well with you and the family.

Was so happy to see your post today - I actually flipped past it and realized you were back. So glad everything is okay and I agree with Sharon - I can't believe your babies are that old. Love the card - beautiful as always!

I was so thrilled to get the email today that you posted!! I too, was really missing your wonderful creations, but didn't want to bother you, as I really felt like it was family that was taking your time . . . as it should be!! However, that in no way negates the fact that I was so happy you posted, and just LOVE the card! Thanks for sharing!

Love your spring card and I'm so glad to hear from you. I love your blog and have missed it but totally understand duties of a busy mom of young children. Hope you have time to post occasionally, because you are so talented. Happy Spring!!!

Kelly - I'd love to know where that stamp "Spring Seeds" came from, that you stamped on kraft cardstock and has the little "window" . . . THANKS! Janice

Debra said...

I believe that Seed envelope is from Papertrey. As always when I see one of your cards, I am now thinking I shoulda got it! Wonderful to see this post, but I certainly remember the days of kindergarden and how busy they can be! Enjoy your family and hope they are all doing well! Thanks also for sharing!
