About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

Spring Forward

On Wed. 2/25/15  Susan Sieracki at http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/  challenged us to make a card that reminded us of Spring.
One of the things I like about Spring is the way the air smells after a rain. The snow disappears and the tiny shoots of crocus, tulips, and other varieties of spring flowers appear.  With the first Spring rain and robin sighting, I know summer is just around the corner.


  1. Joan, this card is adorable. I love that image. And, of course, nothing screams Spring like rain...lol. Thank you so much for playing along with The Mod Squad Challenge this week.

  2. Love your card, the layout and great colors. Thanks for joining in at The Mod Squad Challenge!

  3. This is fabulous, love the colors you used and that designer paper! Great imagine and loving your rain drop gems!
