Finally we had a nice Spring Break day – beautiful sunshine, blue skies, temps have warmed up and as long as we aren’t right on the lake not to much wind.   We were able to spend some time outside today but it is our last day away and we are headed back home tonight.  Greg went home last night so he could return to work today. 

Here is one more card I wanted to share using the Soft Summer stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog.  soft-summerThis image is a Dogwood and the Dogwood trees are in bloom everywhere around my mom’s house.  She has several.  I have som in my yard but they aren’t big and don’t bloom the way hers do.
