Hello from Northern Virginia!  We’ve had the strangest (yet typical) weather here.  It can be 70 one day and dropping to freezing the next day… even snow followed by 60 degrees.  But one of those cold wintry days did inspire me to make this clean and simple card using A Way With Words Brrrrr die and the cardinal from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Garden Birds set.  I just think that bright shock of red is so pretty against the snow covered trees outside.

So Sweet – Garden Notes Hydrangea from Susan’s Garden

Wishing all my friends and fellow crafters a very good day.

Where I live the spring season is in full bloom, marking the end of a hard winter season and the beginning of fresh sunny weather ahead.

Hydrangeas signify heartfelt emotions, gratitude and thanksgiving to one you care for, as well as abundance and prosperity. With these emotions in mind I have created this card with the hydrangea as the central theme.
