Home Grown

My parents arrived this evening for a six-day visit. We are going to be super busy these coming days! But I had to squeeze in one more card:

I know there won't be much any time for posting tomorrow, so it has to be now, but I also don't have much time for details as it's awfully late and I really need to get my rest {soon}! Sorry!

Challenges:
Thanks for checking out my card!
Emily

Have a fabulous visit with your parents, Emily :) I'm sure your kids are thrilled to have them there too. Great card with the spotlighted crocuses and love the touch of the button with twine.

Yay! Enjoy the time with your family - the kids are bouncing off the walls, I bet! (And I'm not even jealous, since I get to see my family tomorrow...woohoo!)
I love the 'spotlight' on the crocuses - this is such a soft and gorgeous card!

Emily, have a beautiful time with your parents. We, in turn, will sit and admire your awesome card 'till you come back! (he, he,he). I love it, simple and so beautiful with the spotlight flowers. Well done with the paper piecing at Crafty Creations Challenge. I always enjoy seeing you play, you are one of my favorite stampers you know.

Cherish the moments with them, they are blessed aren't they.
