Allergic to spring....sniff!!

I've lived in this country for 10 years and always enjoyed the beginnings of spring and its beautiful flowers. Not this year!! I mean, I still love the season and the colours, but my sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes are driving me nuts!!!!! I can barely breathe, I sound like the queen of nasal tones and I'm carrying a box of tissues with me all around the house. Not to mention, I keep startling my kids every time I blow my nose. My older one commented, after an especially noisy blow, "Wow!! Amma, that's like an elephant!!". Well, right now, I feel like there's one sitting on me! Still, I wouldn't give up this weather for anything:)

I took on the sketch from Clean & Simple FTL 86. I love their sketches because your card doesn't end up having that cluttered look with so many layers and embellishments.

Really enjoyed using some new DP by My Little Shoebox (they have the cutest papers!), and the sentiment is a Stampendous stamp. I used three different punches for the circles; the 1 & 3/4" from SU, the medium sized Martha Steward Punch and the smallest is from the JoAnn store. I really liked how the sentiment covered most of the yellow and balances the brightness. I also like how this card could be given for any occasion really. It's a simple and heartfelt sentiment and speaks volumes. 

My older son starts soccer practice today!!! I'm so excited for him. This is where I'm really transforming into the all-American mom!!! Planning on having a little picnic after soccer with sandwiches and fruit and then some yummy ice cream!!! It's a beautiful day....aachhhoooo!! Namaste!
