Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great start to your week! We are slowing easing into spring here in Southern Ontario. It's been fairly nice so far. Not exactly warm but at least our snow has melted. Where my parents live though (about 5 hours away), they are still loaded with snow which at the rate we're going may be there until June!!! My boys were out on the golf course on the weekend (it's not open yet) hitting some balls around and getting in a little spring training. Let's say they're a little rusty but thankfully it doesn't take long for them to get into the "swing" of things!!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of another one of our newest team members Lee Ann Barrett! Lee Ann's cards are just beautiful and her colouring is fantastic. I may have to go and visit her for some colouring lessons!!!
This isn't the first card I made for this challenge. I went back and forth a few times with different sentiments and different elements. Nothing looked quite right. I finally decided on this one and then put it all together and realized this isn't the sentiment I wanted to go on it. Insert eye roll. Seriously. My brain hasn't been working well lately!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great start to your week! We are coming off of our March Break here! We had a great week with my parents! It was nice and relaxing. The boys were able to play a ton of driveway hockey on their huge driveway! We also took in the War Museum in Ottawa. Such a great museum. The kids really liked it and it's very well done. I highly recommend it if you're ever in the National Capital!

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well! We are heading into March break here and we're pretty excited about it. That being said, I don't think my kids have had a full week of school since January. Between snow days and PA days and holidays it feels like they're never in school!!! Oh well. I also consider March break to be the end of winter in Southern Ontario. This year, I may be off a bit. We still have enough snow on the round and it's freezing outside!! Hopefully by next week things start to change!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is the amazing Amy O'Neill. Amy is our resident elements expert. She can create the most intriguing cards. I just love them. Head over to her blog to check them out!
I opted to add in some purple to this card since I do love a good purple card! I embossed the purple panel with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to give it a bit of texture. I wanted to use some DSP of some sort but couldn't find any that I liked!
