A Warm Spring Day - PPC #9

Hello everyone! I don't know about you but our weekend was very busy, but oh boy did I love the sun and warm weather. Yesterday we had my daughters birthday party. The project I thought I would do was get the kids to make a Mother's Day or a Father's Day Card. With the help of my good friend Lori who convinced me that too many stamp choices for the kids would lead to a headache, we paired it down to a little designer paper and flowers (from my mom), and to making it a simple design and only 3 small layers with specific stamps. It worked wonderfully! :) Less was more in this case...LOL. So thank you to my mom and Lori for your help, I couldn't have done it without you!

What a FABBY color combo this week at the Picture Perfect Creations. When I pulled out the colors and put them together I just knew I had to use this Greeting Farms stamp. The colors reminded me of warm weather, the hot sun and oh the blue water....I was thinking of our trip to Mexico a few years ago...tons of laughter and relaxation. *Sigh* WE would love to go back...maybe some day :). My sketch was found over at Friday Sketchers and it was designed by Beatrix (Sketch #97). Thanks Beatrix for a wonderful just pulled this card together.

Here is my card...isn't she adorable...I think she looks like she is thinking beach day...
