Spring is in the Air!

Hi every-ONE ... and You know who you are!
I want to share one of the cards for the April Card Class coming up. I just LOVE,  Love,  love Iris and the many shades of purple they bring. But... it wasn't always that way...  to think when I was young I thought they were so boring. 
I guess that is because they grew everywhere, along our drive and mixed with the Lily of  the Valley around our tree. They also popped up in our yard and my dad would dig them up and move them to the flower bed.... maybe.  
I always wished my mom took more interest in yard and the way it looked.  Our neighbors were the envy of everyone... and the yard was always blooming in another color each year and besides the perennials, they added annuals as well. Where as ours was ... dad threw in a few perennials he dug up on one his job locations (he was a carpenter) and he would dig a hole ... done! No thought process at all... then the seeds took over. They grew where they grew and multiplied each year.  He would even run them over with the lawn mover and you couldn't kill them if you wanted. 

 The first card is more equal purples and the second has several shade of the same.
Below you can see if you zoom in,  I popped up the third flower for dimension.
Now looking back... my parents were genius! Right? Not a lot of work and the flowers free and they WERE gorgeous!  Just took me a while to appreciate I guess.
My tulips are popping up as I type this!

St. Patrick's French Fry!

Here is  a quick post to show the treat boxes for my March class. I used the SU French Fry box die and decorated with St. Patrick's Day theme. They came out so cute right?
I shredded old DSP from my scrapbooking days for the 'straw' to hold the candy.
A simple 'good luck' held on by a shamrock charm....
Filled with yummy treats!
