Happy 5

I have been outside quite a bit, so I only managed to squeeze in one card today.  It's not really that warm yet (50's), but that feels fabulous after such a long winter!  I saw a challenge to create a gift card holder at Moxie Fab.  I turned to my favorite pattern for this - Scalloped Money Holder - from Jeanette Lynton's Originals Card Confidence Program (CTMH).  The templates for this card is on CD that comes with the book.  It made this bright and cheery card very easy to put together.

I've used Echo Park's Little Boy paper, but this could easily be used for a boy or a girl.  The ribbon and button are CTMH, and the stickers are Echo Park.

I walked in the woods with Miss Chanel this afternoon.  Wish I'd have been quick enough to get the picture of her with her head up a hollow tree!  I am quite certain that there is something living in there and her beagle nose sniffed it right out.  There are possums in the wood pile and woodchucks under the shed.  You know, that's why we leave our yard to nature.  So fun to see all those critters!  But this is the best discovery of all.  When the lilies peek out of the ground, then I know spring is here and summer is coming!
