One Day At A Time

There are so many who are hoping Spring is almost here.  After another snowfall Monday and Tuesday, it is evident that we might as well sit back and wait because we cannot rush Spring coming.  No sense in fretting.  In fact, while others were moaning and complaining about more snow, I was enjoying it!  So many times our snow comes in the form of a blizzard.  This last snow was beautiful, flakes floating down, no wind, turning the area into a winter wonderland. One principle that I am trying to put into practice is to enjoy the day I am in; not to live in the past or the future.  We miss so much looking back or wishing for the future.
Having said all that, I must admit it will be nice to see signs of Spring - flowers and sunshine.
Here is a card with a touch of Spring:

The image is by From the Heart.  The ovals were cut with Spellbinder Oval dies.  Flowers were made with Spellbinder Scallop Circles.  I cut a slit between each scallop to form "petals" before adding a brad.  The leaves are a Elizabeth Craft Jasmine die.
