This is the second lil’ box that I have created like this.  Every time I go away to a trade show or a retreat, I leave one of these boxes out filled with notes and treats to the kids telling them how thankful I am to have them and how much I miss them.  They totally look forward to it when I leave.  It’s so funny.   This one I created before I left for CHA in January.  I had so much fun creating the flower out of the Spellbinders™ Blossom Two die template.  I’m not sure if it’s because spring is upon us or what but I just loving all the flowers I’ve been seeing lately.  There are so many cool ways to create your own homemade flower.  And then there are the pre-made ones that cost a fortune but seriously….they are GORGEOUS!

This is a quick thank you card I put together using some of my favorite colors right now.  Just loving the leaf green and yellow. 

Yes!  It’s sunny out today….finally!!  And I am sooooo ready for spring and more green and yellow. Speaking of green…..yes it’s St. Patty’s day (I nearly forgot) and I don’t have a special card for that.  Sorry!  My day started putting out the fire between my 10 year old who insisted to my 5 year old that she wear green or she would be pinched all day.  *sigh*  She was just in tears and did NOT want to change.  My 8 year old is getting to have green pancakes at school in her class today.   Hmmm….one way or the other, I hope you get a tad bit of happy green in your day today!

The basketball tournament went well and the Ribbon Festival was amazing.  I’ll be doing a post about that tomorrow with some fun photos. 

So, jumping all over the place this morning, I have to share this link with you.  Some of us were discussing it the last few days on one of my design teams.  It’s a live close up feed of a hummingbird that had a few eggs that were getting ready to hatch.  I missed the drama yesterday because I’ve been working but apparently a lizard came by and she ended up throwing (how does a bird a throw?) one of the eggs at the lizard.  So, was the egg bad?  Or was she sacrificing one to safe the other?  Then, she ended up leaving the nest for quite some time late last night so now the debate is up whether or not this egg is bad.  Anyhoo….in the spirit of spring…it’s quite an interesting live chat going on in the side bar.  Check it out if you have extra time and want to see a sweet Hummingbird up close.  She really is absolutely beautiful.

And here is a site about Phoebe (the Mama.)

*edited*  Oh man, I just found the link to the video where the lizard invades.  Unreal.  I can’t seem to link it but it is posted above the live chat.  Very interesting!  (now I know how a bird throws an egg…with her beak!)

Have a sunny and blessed day my friends!
