May Flowers? Well, make it April.


After Thursday's torrential rains, and a gloomy Friday, the skies opened up and we had am absolutely gorgeous weekend. Saturday was a beautiful sunny day, and Sunday was not to a disappointment either, just a bit more breeze.

And with the good weather yesterday, we were all able to enjoy a wonderful birthday party of a wonderful little girl. The weather was perfect, the children played and played outside, while the adults had the chance to chat, mingle, and enjoy the fresh air too. The card you see today I prepare for the birthday girl, using both The Paper Players challenge 240 and the Sweetest Sunday Sketch challenge 264.  I wanted a more modern sentiment, and the Birthday Bash was called to the job along with the Labels Collection framelits. She loved it, and so did we. Did you notice that speckled background? Well it is called Gorgeous Grunge and I truly love this set!
