Hello Spring!

Happy Friday!

Are you ready for the weekend???   Temps are to be very spring-like this wknd so I'm looking forward to it!  Those of you that live near a Rita's Ice, don't forget the free Italian Ice they offer on the first day of Spring!  yum!

I have a fun card to show you today.

Stamps: sentiment:  My Cute Stamps, clear (pop flowers set)
Paper:  SU! kraft cs, BasicGrey dp, yellow cs (Michael's)
Other:  Zva Creative pearl, glitter glue/Sparklettes fine glitter,
Fisker scallop scissors, birdie pattern from Cardmaking mag.

love playing with glitter!    Thought this would make a nice 'just because' card.

I did see a funny card the other day and almost CASEd it.   It used the ever-popular sentiment on the front, "A little birdie told me...it's your birthday" and the inside had a grinning cat with the sentiment, "but I ate him!  Your secrets safe with me."   totally cracked me up!     What a wonderfully creative bunch you all are, you inspire me!!!

Have a fantastically sparkly day!
