Cherry Blossoms

I thought this die would make for some pretty spring cards.

Sorry about the slanted picture, I didn't realize until I put it in Photoshop that it was slanted that much.

Spellbinders-- Cherry Blossom die, flowers have been  shaped
Stickles-- Fruit punch, for flower centers
Cricut Bloom cartridge for the bird cage, DCWV mettalic papers
Recollections- wooden bird, colored with Distress stain in weathered wood
Martha Stewart border punch

My Father in law is back in the hospital, he had a mini stroke and he is in congestive heart failure, it is so hard to live so far away when our parents are going through such hard times.  I went through that with both my parents and now my husband is going through it with his.

We  had rain most of the day yesterday and this morning still, but hopefully we will see the sun sometime today.

Hope the sun is shining wherever you are,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and your sweet comments, they are much appreciated,

Lovely sweet die for any time of year, and a very pretty card. I'm sorry to hear your father-in-law is having such a hard time of it. It's not easy being so far away.
