~ spring is here ~


whohoo! nothing like the spring flowers starting to bloom ~ the sun shining and a whole lot of fresh air. yep ~ that's what i've been doing ~ gettin outside ~ breathin in some sunshine ~ planting flowers and doing lots of yard work. i just love gettin my hands in that dirt and playing. so with that said ~ i got in the scrappy spring mode and did up some spring cards. the stamps are from *layers of color. i love that lil snail..isn't he the cutest! the teenie tiny teaser cards measure 1.5 x 3.5 in. cute eh! the layout is of our new friends 'doug and darlene'. we were invited to have a weiner roast at their home a lil while ago. awesome peeps. we had a wonderful time ~ laughing and just enjoying spending time together. well ~ i'm off to load up the trailer today. dh and i are planning a lil mini trip on the island here to one of our local rv sites. yep, it'll be so nice to get out and sit around the campfire, roast some marshmellows, and just enjoy nature. hope all you chickies have a scrappy happy week.
updated to add: a pic of my dh! yep..we arrived at our site today. and wow ~ gorgeous place! that's him takin a lil rest by the river.
