MOJO227 & SSIC126 - There's a Buzz in the Air

Happy Sunday to you! I'm popping in to share my card for the weekly sketch challenge at Mojo Monday. I also took the opportunity to play along with Stampin' Sisters in Christ. They are looking for cards that will make them smile! With Valentine's Day almost here and the sun shining in Kentucky, my thoughts have turned to spring! My poor daffodils are peeking out! With the snow we had over the weekend, I feel certain they want to pop back underground! I love the wonder of spring! Each year it feels like a breath of promise to come... of not only warmer but longer days... lightning bugs twinkling in the summer night and days spent visiting outdoors with family and friends... What a wonderful gift it is! The power of Easter and what it symbolizes... the resurrection of our Lord and Savior... His defeat of death and the grave! Spring is a promise. A promise that life can begin anew if we just have faith! Blessings...
