Tropically Thankful

I sooooo can't wait for summer!! Okay, well ... I'm even giddy about SPRING!! ANYthing that is NOT winter!! (And, as much as I LOVE the fall, I am glad it's not fall 'cause winter comes right after it!)!! I couldn't be happier that I am seeing tulips, daffodils and crocus in my front yard! I feel the reprieve from winter is finally on its way!!

It was my turn as hostess again fpr the Free for All challenge on SCS today. I chose to take a virtual vacation ... LOVE the new stamps I used for this one! (They are from the upcoming summer mini catalog). I am also loving this new Square Lattice embossing folder (my friend thinks it looks like berber carpet, but I think it looks fab!). These images just screamed "bright colors" at me, so there ya have it!! What I wouldn't give for a lazy day at the beach ... love to sit under a big ol' umbrella and snack and read ... ahhhhh, I can just FEEL the sand between my toes!! Smiley from

What a HAPPY card. The colors just make me smile :)
I visited your state this weekend and Saturday was a perfect spring day for my nephew's wedding.
A beach....ah for a non-landlocked state.
Have a beautiful day.
