Happy Friday Friends!! I hope everyone has enjoyed their week and they are excited for the weekend!!!  I know many...including my family are expecting TONS of snow this afternoon and throughout the weekend.  I pray everyone remains safe and warm!!!!

With winter in full force in many areas...I know I am looking forward to new beginnings...Spring...where the miracles of nature begin.  I just love when the flowers begin to grow and bloom...the trees bud and leaf out!! What a glorious time of year.  I call it God's landscape...there is nothing more miraculous.

That is why today I get to share an image and card that makes me feel happy!! For today's card, I used ODBD Let The Earth Rejoice Earth's Gladdest Day , and The Shepherd .

I masked my images and colored them in with copics. The open crocuses have flower soft in the middle for some added texture. The background of the oval is embossed in Soft Swirls (provocraft) and the rectangle is embossed in a SU basket weave (unsure of the name).

Card Recipe:
Accessories: SU basket weave, Provocraft Soft Swirls, Spellbinders Ovals, Silver Baubles, copics, Purple silk ribbon from May Arts, Becca's Peg Bowmaker.

The layout on my card uses a sketch from Splitcoast: SC422.   The bow is tied with Becca's Peg Bowmaker.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Have a great day and a blessed weekend!!

hugs and blessings,

Hi Cris; very unusual and lovely bookmarks. Good that you showed they are from Spellbinders; I would never have found out because I have never seen them before!

Thanks for participating with our Anything Goes Challenge, too and welcome back next week for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons!

Greetings from La Vikinga / DT
