Dandelion Girl

Do you remember blowing on dandelions and watching the little fluffy seeds fly off in the air. It is such a simple joy and a great reminder of the beauty in the world God has freely given us. You might have guessed that this particular Whimsy stamp, called "Dandelion Girl" is one of my favorites! Since I felt this card was reflecting nature I decided to use my new Mushroom Border Die. I am in love with this die and you can create so much deminsion with it. I must admit that I usually grab my Leafy Branch die and Phlox Flowers as my go to and make my card pretty dies, but I know I will be grabbing the Mushroom Border for many cards. A few lacy butterflys with some lovely pearls. (BTY they came off a store bought card I received at Christmas!)   I have (oh I am a creature of habit) used my beloved Copics to color my image. You can find all of these products at All That Scraps....an so much more....there are some fabulous new products for March. Have fun and enjoy!
A quick update on my son Jeff. He met with the surgeon who said he would not need sugery (a praise) but he could not bend, lift or sit for prolonged periods for six weeks. Jeff is a Project Manager for a construction company. So, this will not be easy for him. His sweet wife works part time to carry insurance for the family. So, Jeff takes care of the little boys when she works evenings and week-ends. We had planned to go and help them but they are tough (my grandson's term for anyone who lives in Wyoming!) and have decided to weather this storm on their own. Please keep them in your prayers.

My Song: hmmm this is a hard one.. how about a Beatles song!
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
