Easter Daffodils

Well, hello there!

Just in case you've been wondering where I've been...(lol)...I've been spending a lot of my time preparing for a party/workshop this week, so I haven't had much "extra" time for making something to post.

HOWEVER, today I remembered something I made awhile back and planned on posting on Easter. But then I thought...what if people want to MAKE this card for Easter/Spring?  If I post it on Easter, and they don't have the set, they're stuck! :)  BUT, if I post it a little early, they have time to order it from me and make cards in time for Easter! :) it is in it's all it's simple glory... :)

I just love the cheeriness of beautiful yellow daffodils in the Spring, and the significance of new life all these flowers bring!  Ours are up, and just waiting to burst open...I can't WAIT! :)

Just curious about something...Do you know who can give YOU new life?  I'll give you a hint: it's what Easter is all about! (not the Easter Bunny)...

Colored with my reinkers and aquapainter, popped up on dimensionals, and the bg is embossed with SU's embossing folder, Finnial Press....both stamp sets used are in the Occasions Mini catalog! :)

Well, what do you think?
