A Spring TimeThank You

Hi everyone.  Hope your weekend went without any hitches.  Ours was nice and quiet with just the normal home and yard duties, oh yes, and our only grand daughter turned 21 Sunday. Whew where did those year go to?  
I'm here today with a thank you card that I made with one of Deedee's set titled Ladybug Hugs which you can find here.

I used the pre-colored version but then went over the flowers a little bit with my Copics because I was in a half hearted mood to color, so this seemed ideal, just do a little touch up coloring job.  I also added some Glossy Accents to the flower center just for that added pop.  This set comes with many great sentiments, but I used a retired SU! sentiment this time because I wanted a one line sentiment that would run across the bottom of the card.    The paper is from Christmas Tree Shop.

Many thanks to you for taking the time to stop by today.  I have been lax in my postings of late but I am trying to keep up with commenting and I hope I haven't missed anyone but if I have I apologize.  Wishing you all a great Tuesday.



  1. A lovely card, Donna! Such a sweet image from Deedee! Cute sentiment too!

  2. Beautiful card, Donna! That's a pretty little image! Happy Birthday to your granddaughter!

  3. What a pretty way to showcase that beautiful digi stamp! The background paper you used is the perfect backdrop, and I love the rounded corners too!
    Enjoy your time in this nice weather! We'll all have plenty of time to make cards and comment when winter rolls around again! You're not the only one who wants to be out and about when it's nice outside!!! Have a great week ahead!

  4. Beautiful background paper and a beautiful card!!! So lovely. I've never thought to go over a colored image before but will now. Thanks for the tip.
    Glad y'all had a great weekend!

  5. Wonderful card, Donna! You always have such great ideas!! Happy Birthday to your granddaughter!!

  6. Donna, what a fabulous background for showing off that fun image! Love the way the "Thank You" sentiment runs clear across the bottom of the card. :-D

  7. I can't even imagine my granddaughter turning 21, but at the rate their growing I know it will be here before we know it!! How times flies right on by us. Love, love this card Donna! The image is so sweet and cute and I am just loving that paper you used and it goes so perfect with your image! Hugs, Brenda

  8. HI Donna, a beautiful card, gorgeous image and the background paper really complements it..Happy belated 21st to your Grandaughter! Hugs Carole Z X

  9. Another gorgeous card, Donna! I wish I had as much inspiration as you do, to make so many cards in a week's time! Love your ideas, they inspire me!
    28 degrees here overnight, with frost! Glad I didn't have my flowers out yet!

  10. I feel half-hearted about coloring a lot lately - that is why I have really been attracted to water colors the last few weeks - they are so much easier to do for me. Your image is cute and I love the bg paper you used. Happy Birthday to your grand-daughter! Hugz!

  11. This is a pretty card Donna, your image and papers go so well together.
