Here is my Card!


I loved the Woodgrain look behind the blue coffee pot in the picture.

I added the embossed layer to mimic the Woodgrain!

The darker blue in the mat was to mimic the coffee pot!

And of course, those Daffodils!


Here is the inside of my Card!


I kept the inside fairly simple, but I just had to bring those Daffodils inside!

I like how this Card makes me Happy!

After the Winter those in the North have had…I would smile to see the

Daffodils finally poke out and color the blah of Winter!

Sad to say…mine came up about a month ago and all I got were 3!

I did cut them and put in a vase at my kitchen sink to enjoy!

Then we got all the cool weather and rain that turned into all the

storms the North got hit with…I do have to say…I can’t wait for

it to finally warm up here too!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Daffodil sprouting to you ALL!

  1. This is a delightful spring card! I love the woodgrain texture in the background and the bright pop of your daffodils. They are always such a welcome cheerful reminder that spring is one its way! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. Very pretty…perfect use of these daffodils, and I love that you stamped them inside too! That adds such a nice touch. Great way to use the sketch as well! Thanks for playing with IB this week!
