Oooh! Both of your cards are fabulous! Love the bright springy colors on them! I'm right there with you, waiting (impatiently) for Spring to arrive. I just shoveled more snow this morning, so I'm READY!

Two amazing cards, Marlena! The citrus coloured circles of the first are delicious; candy for the eyes! Your butterflies: swooning over how lovely they are! Movement, colour, life, Spring, beauty...I think I "need" this butterfly set! Did you know there's a new butterfly challenge, hostess-ed by Mrs. A, from the UK. Her current challenge - beginning today and running for two weeks - is butterfly, button, bow. Since you've worked magic with your butterflies here, I think you could create something amazing for this challenge. Here's the link: Your cards are always so inspiring, so I'm going to do my best to 'market' your creativity to new challenges whenever possible! You're just too awesome not to be showcased! Hugs~c
