Spring/CR84FN 17

Hello my sweet friends.  Are you having a wonderful weekend so far?   It was 67 and sunny today.  Not a cloud in the sky.  I am so ready for spring.  I sat out on the deck in the sunshine for a couple hours today.  I think my face is a little red tonight.  I have to admit, that after long winters in Iowa that this mild winter in Alabama was quite nice.  I found a set of table, chairs and a swing that I am ordering tonight.  I love to sit on the swing and drink my coffee.  It is also wonderful for afternoon naps.  We found a new grill at Lowes tonight also.  When we moved we sold all our patio furniture and grill.  There was no way that everything was going to fit in the moving truck when we moved.  We lived there for 8 years and had accumulate so much stuff.  Besides, we had a basement and you don't find those often in the south.

So, after I chatted your ear off...I will share my card for this weeks colors at CR84FN.  I used another one of my new sets from Flourishes called Seasonal Wreaths.

 I am so sad that this is Stella's last week as Guest Designer.  So do you know what that means?  It is time to choose another for the month of March.  Make sure you play along.  We love to see what you create.
