What a Beautiful Day!

I hope the weather was as wonderful where you are as it was here in Minnesota today-- Temps in the low 70's! That's crazy for this time of year. Normally we're trying to get out of town and to leave the bitter cold temperatures and snow. I guess Spring Break is in MN this year!

When the weather starts to get like this I start to think about all my perennials. Will they all come back this year, if not, which ones will I need to replace. The plants change so quickly this time of year, you can practically see them grow in front of your eyes.

Here is a card inspired by the spring weather and thoughts of my gardens...

I had some leftover die cuts from when I cut the wrong size or change my mind about the color while making other cards. Instead of throwing these away, I stick them in a file folder and pull them out now and again to see what I might throw together.

The tulips are from Walk in my Garden and are popped up with pop dots.
The tag is from Once Upon a Princess with a sentiment from Pink by Design Spring has Sprung stamp set
The butterfly is from the Imagine cartridge Nursery Tails and popped up with pop dots
The mat is from Lacey Labels

Enjoy the weather and have a fabulous weekend!

I, too, am in Minnesota and really enjoyed the weather today. Like other Minnesotans, I keep waiting for the axe (or snow) to fall. Love your card!

This is so pretty!!! I love the butterfly/flower scene. I do that too as far as keeping cuts- you never know when you might need one and it comes in handy. Great card :)Amy
