May Your Day Bloom With Happiness!

Hello to all my crafty friends and family. Just to let you know we are still here in Arizona enjoying the beautiful weather and watching all the cactus come into bloom. I am stating to get a bit homesick, but there is still a lot of snow, dirt and snow mold all over in Edmonton, so I guess it will be at least another month before we head home
So in the mean time I decided to make a card to join in some of the fun challenges going on. 
This week Fantabulous Cricut has a sketch challenge and  this is my take of it.
Here is a picture of the sketch which can be found over at Fantabuous Cricut Blog.

One of my favorite cards to make is a easel card I just love the way each one turns out so different and they are so easy to make. I all so love that Craftin Desert Diva's blog and D.L. Art Blog are both having a anything goes linky party! So I will be able to join in two more challenges all so ! Woo! Hoo!
This is one of my favorite butterflies cuts that Cricut has, it is from Pictureque Cricut cartridge, cut at 1.5 inches. I love all the different layers this cut has to offer.
For the inside of the card I used Cricuts Paisley for the small butterfly, cut at .50 and Storybook cartridge for the Thank you cut at 1 inch.
Next cartridge used was Ellegant Edges which worked out perfect to add this fun sentiment from My Craft Spots Inside and Out #1, and yes you guessed it they have a Thank you challenge going on right now. So here you have it, one card that I can enter in a few challenge. Plus I needed a thank you card for the lady that has been kind enough to let us rent this beautiful place for the last three months. So thank you Dawn! I am sure we will be back again next year.
Thanks for stopping bye and have a super fun week!
