Since my first blog I have decided to try and share some memories of my upbringing in a large family on a little farm in Tonasket, WA. I could only wish that the children of today could experience a great family life with their aunts, uncles and cousins sharing in family gatherings. As the saying goes “Those were the days”!
I just love spring because of the array of colors it brings after a long winter of white and brown. As a child growing up in central Washington and having all four seasons. In the spring the vibrant colors bring the high desert of WA alive with such beautiful wildflowers and fruit orchards. This time of year the hillsides are abloom with yellow sunflowers (balsom root) and buttercups, blue bells and purple shooting stars, while the valley comes to life with a vast variety of fruit orchards. It truly is a sight to see and one I reminisce of younger years.
One of my all times favorites is the pink of the fruit trees coming into full bloom, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, apricots, plums and the different hues of pink they all have. The valley comes to life again.
So… this all being said, my card today reminds me of apple blossom time, the sun is warm and bright, the leaves are fresh and green and the butterflys and bees are pollinating them so they will bare fruit in the fall. What a wonderful place to have grown up. I am so blessed.

This card is made using a retired color of paper and candy dots Strawberry Slush, retired ink from long ago/Yolo Yellow, Whisper White card stock, flower stamps from Indescribable Gift, and words from Fabulous Florets. The butterfly was cut using Daffodil Delight and Beautiful Wings Embosslits. You can purchase all the products except the Yolo Yellow ink pad from my website by clicking below on Shop Now.
Until the end of May you can also purchase many products at discounted prices from the retiring list. On June 2 the new catalog will be live with a massive amount of new things to put on your Wish List.
It is an exciting time of year, not only because its spring but we have a whole new catalog to look over with brand new creations coming online June 2!
I do hope you enjoy my trip down memory lane as I look forward to sharing more with you, hopefully taking you back to the joyous times in your childhood.
