Bright and cheery to chase the dreary!

I just don't know what to think about the weather situation here in central Minnesota. After a cool, rainy and dreary weekend, today we went from the 50's this morning to a high of 88, with VERY high humidity. Now I can't even watch any prime time TV on our local stations as they are all covering the tornado watch currently in effect, which is centered around the Twin Cities metro area. Can't we have just one nice stretch of spring-like weather, with sunshine and comfortable temps in the 70's? It would be nice if that stretch would last longer than one day, too! I imagine I'm not the only one who's getting kind of cranky with this unsettled spring we're having.

So, here's a card that should perk you right up! I finally got to play with some of my new stuff from the Summer Mini Catalog last night, and this is the result of my playtime. I couldn't wait to use my Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, and boy did I have fun! This is an awesome three-in-one punch; you just move the lever to punch out whatever image you want, and then you can layer them in a variety of ways. I knew I wanted to create a card with bright and cheery blossoms, so I pulled out my trusty Color Coach to help me come up with the color scheme. I had an image in my head of what I wanted to do, and it actually turned out the way I imagined it; that doesn't happen every time! Do you feel a little more cheery now? I do!
