Well, shucks.....

....and also Thanks!  And I really mean thanks for all the wonderful comments that you guys gave me over on Die Cut Diva's blog.  I really appreciate it.  To say that you all were just too kind, too darn nice is just an understatement.  So, again, thank you. ;-D  And, besides thanks I also have a card today.  It has been snowing here in Wisconsin.  And when it hasn't been snowing it has been thinking about snowing again!  We had snow Friday and will again tomorrow.  Like another 5-6 inches I've heard.  And it is past mid March.  I have never remembered this much snow on the ground at this time of the year ever!  So....I decided to make a very summer-y card featuring sunflowers.  I love sunflowers and love to color them.  This image is by Hero Arts and it is colored with copics.  The dies are Spellbinder's and the ribbon is basic seam binding that I colored with one of the yellow copic colors that I used on the sunflowers.  Finally, the sunflowers have yellow stickles on the petals and glossy accents on their middles.  Kind of an easy peasy card.  The inside sentiment is WhipperSnapper designs and the card is finished off with scraps.  I  hope to have a little bit more time to craft in the next few days....my husband has been gone for over a week and will be gone until next Friday so sometimes that gives me time to craft and other times that means that there is no time what so ever to craft!     I hope that you all are having/have had a nice weekend....mine was very nice.  My middle daughter came home for the weekend which is always nice and my son had his music competition all day yesterday and I love to go and hear him play.  I am sure going to miss the music when he leaves next September!  Anyways, here is my card....I plan to enter it into Die Cut Diva's March Green contest.


And, here is the inside of the card.  I love this little sentiment....especially when I pair it with a sunflower image.



Thank you for stopping by today and again, thank you sooo much for all your wonderful comments on the Die Cut Diva's blog!

Hi Sheila,
Your card is so cheerful, especially your sunflowers, which look beautiful. Love those dies, and your paper, too:)
Sorry I have been absent for a while, but I haven't felt much like blogging recently.
Thank you so much for your kind words regarding our loss of Cookie. We are all missing her so much. Hugs xx

The coloring is marvelous. The flower just pops! I especially like the way the flower on the right peeks off the card.
