A happy day!

A happy day it is!  Everyone in my household returned to work/school today.   A typical day one could say  :-)  The holiday and inclement weather gave us a nice four day weekend but today it was time to start back up again. 
I pulled out some fun and bright papers to work on a Spring card.  I know it's just around the corner.
 ;-) Which reminds me that I need to do some pruning and start considering flowers for the Spring.  This week at Crafty Creations our theme is  "At the Bottom of my Garden Lives...". I am sad to admit I know I have seen some these critters lurking about.   Definitely not a pleasant moment cause I find them not so lovable and cute in real life.
 But this little fella just me smile!  Look at that huge grin!  This is a Jane's Doodle digi that  I printed  on Sass Lass and October Afternoon papers and pieced together.  I added the big red button with floss for the center because he needed a little something.  Lots of polka dots!  A fave print of mine.  The sentiment really makes me snicker because I joke with my daughter about moving at a snail's pace sometimes.  I am usually full of energy and fast paced.  I love that God gave me a daughter to slow down and see all the things I miss at times in high gear.  What a blessing!  Happiness in the fullest! 
Here's to inspiring you to dig in!  Please join us at Crafty Creations with your garden inspired card!  The design team created some cards with Delicious Doodles.  The chain and cog image is so fabulous!
