Give Thanks For Spring

Pink Thanks Card

Happy WOYWW to you! What are you thankful for today? I’m thankful for the official arrival of Spring! I love everything about this season and what it stands for!

  • Longer days.
  • Warmer days.
  • New life.
  • Greenery.
  • Flowers in bloom.

I’m also grateful for each of you who takes the time to visit my site each day and blesses me with your comments and your friendship.

And so – a token of my affection and appreciation for you!

Thanks Card & Envie

And a few new Art Challenges to share:

It’s been a busy week filled with books, baking, and babysitting the boys. If you’re in the mood for a new recipe, check out my Guinness Brownies.

    Guinness is only good as an ingredient for me, it does make chocolate cakes and such so moist and enhanced. Mouth watering brownie!

  9. Oh a brownie would be so good with this early morning coffee. And later I could join Legend for Happy Hour. What a fun post and your list of 5 thankful spring lovely’s can arrive here anytime. I’m ready, willing and able to enjoy. Thanks for sharing the pretty card and good luck with the challenges. Enjoy

    Thank you so much – such a lovely card – great colour combination and design. Legend looks in his element with the Guinness. Off to check out your recipe though I might have a job persuading the EM to give up any of his Guinness even for such a good cause 🙂 Have a happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #55

    I’d be a lot more thankful for the start of spring if the weather was anything spring-like! 😆 It’s wet and miserable and it even snowed a bit, again, this morning. :/

    Happy spring to you Joy! I love spring because it’s life renewed. I love hearing the birds singing at sunset. It’s like music to my ears. I think of the resurrection. I think our Heavenly Father gave us spring to remember that. It’s so beautiful.

    I love everything about spring – except my crazy allergies (which get progressively worse every year).
