Congrats to all of you and thank you all for hopping through to see our rendition of the newest releases.

I wanted to make this card for all of you who are longing for Spring. This is a simple card made with Papertrey's Blooming Button Bits. The buttons were a set of white and ivory buttons from PTI that I colored with Copics. It's a cold, crisp morning (for Florida) but the sun shines brightly, the birds are chirping a happy, Spring song, and it promises to be a lovely Saturday. I thought I would wish this for all of you. My son's in-laws are down from Minnesota and they're quite weary of the snow. They're also surprised how cold it is here. It is not our typical mild, balmy weather. But hey, ...... no snow!! I hope you have a lovely week-end and happy stamping.

Love this card and your paper piecing on the flower. Hmmmm, coloring buttons with Copics...wonderful idea, thanks for sharing it. I too am ready for warmer weather. It is really unsual for us especially down this far south to be in the 30s, 40s and 50s so much of the time. I wish you a lovely week also.
