When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Pale, Pretty Pastels

That's the Challenge over at Paper Take Weekly (thanks to Sharon Caudle for the inspiration) so I thought I'd join in with this pretty, simple Thank You card. I just love the DP and the colors. I guess I'm being influenced by the season, at least the calendar says it's Spring, so who am I to argue? Soft and subtle, pale and pretty. I just wish this were true for the families suffering from severe storms, tornadoes, floods, and all the other horrible things Mother Nature is throwing at them right now. My heart is with them, and I'm praying for a kinder, gentler season to come.

Don't you just love this shade of turquoise? I've had the paper for ages as well as the Prima flowers and the SEI buttons. The stamp came in a set I got at Michaels back in the dark ages when I still shopped there. Nowadays all my shopping is done online and Michaels doesn't have a web store. I've often wondered how they manage to stay in business without my weekly wallet draining sprees but I guess they manage :)
Here's hoping for a safer, less stressful week for everyone!
