Ahhhh, my daffodils have begun peeking up from the frozen earth. That Nor'Easter that is predicted to dump 5-8 inches of fresh snow surely is a figment of a meteorologist's imagination!
Behind in the challenges this week, I used Korin's lovely sketch and Michelle's suggestion to use green to make my Teaparty card.
Stamped the daffodils from Flourishes Year in Flowers 1 in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics (I used BGs like those leaves outside my family room). Partially matted with Summer Sun. Cut a deckled oval and stamped the Verve Sentiment in Evergreen Bough Distress ink. Ran some of my hoarded Handsome Hunter CS though the script EF, ran some perky baker's twine around it and mounted the components. mounted all on a Summer Sun card. PT - 1
Thanks Fran, Korin and Michelle for your wonderful inspiration. Thank you all for looking and have a peaceful day.

Oh I remember those days when I lived back there. Daffodils are a lovely sign of Spring and when they poke up prematurely it's so sad. I've been thinking of all of you today and hope you've stocked up on things so you can stay home and be safe. This card is a breath of spring time sure to come. Hugs, Marie.

Lovely, Marie. Gorgeous colors and flowers. I love how you colored the flowers and the dark green bg makes them really pop. Our daffodils have been blooming too - but it is pretty warm here in AL. Hope you stay warm and your daffodils stay pretty. Hugz!
