Today, it's noon and already mid-80's! The sun is shining, the flowers have blossomed and it ... is summer! Welcome to Spring in Philadelphia: here one day and summer the next.
On Monday, daughter Emily and I took my grandbaby Charlotte to the Philadelphia Zoo for her first visit. It was beautiful, and we got to see a lot of "aminals" sunbathing in their habitats.
In celebration, I made this pretty card welcoming Spring. The base of the card is from Jillibean Soup's Card Kitchen collection for April. I like to change it up a bit, so I added some Lovebug Creations' Rumple Ribbon in Lemonade, darkened the center-feature flower a bit with Copic markers, and added a "Candi" button to its center.
I also have the pleasure of announcing the winner of my Blog Candy from my March 30 post -- the candy is a handmade cylindrical box chockfull of vintage buttons. The winner is: #24, Martha Pineda!! Martha, please contact me with your mailing address, and I'll get the candy out to you quickly. Thanks for playing along!
