Windy Friday

Hello again!  The wind is howling like crazy outside, sounds like we could be working into another spring storm, but we haven't heard that something bad is coming.  In fact, the weatherperson is predicting "nice weather" on Sunday and 80 degrees on Monday.  For northern Montana in April that's amazing.  I certainly hope the report is right this time! I'd like to finish cleaning out my flower beds.  For those of you who have yards full of iris and other beautiful things, my iris are about 2 inches tall right now.  They won't bloom for another month!

This has been a messy week here.  The inside walls are all down in my living room and there is dust knee deep (well, almost) everywhere.  I think I'll do what I can tomorrow then retreat to my craft room.  So glad it's upstairs away from all of this.  I can't wait for it to be done.  Unfortunately my husband and I will be away for several days next week (I'll attend a special education conference in Billings) so we won't make much progress for a while.

Card-making saves my sanity so I've been doing a lot of it lately.  Here is one of my latest.
  I've been playing around with digital backgrounds again and this is one layer with only the flower (from A Day for Daisies) and the ribbon on top of it.  The butterfly is part of the background, so except for the ribbon there are no embellishments.  I really like how it turned out, and it was perfect to send through the mail.    The background papers are from  the Friends Fur-Ever set at Lettering Delights.  I love the color combination in the main section.  You could put so many things with it

Have a great weekend!
