Beautiful card. I love your use of vellum on your cards. I must try that more often.

Happy May Day!
May is named for the Roman goddess Maia, who oversaw the growth of plants.

Ancient spring rites that related human fertility to crop fertility gave birth to most modern May Day festivities.

Traditionally, this was the day to crown the May queen, dance around the maypole, perform mummers’ plays, and generally celebrate the return of spring.

In Great Britain, the custom of “bringing in the May” involves gathering “knots,” or branches with buds, on the eve or early morning of May 1.

Mark the return of spring by bringing in branches of forsythia or lilacs or other flowering shrubs from your region.

Jaydee; Everything about your card is bright and cheerful. It's sure to brighten up anyone's day but then you always bring a ray of sunshine into all our lives. I totally love the vellum tag.

Jaydee; I also had liked the clean and simple design of your blog and do hope that you decide to go back to your new design.

We could use a little rain down this way so send some our way :}
Enjoy your day and wishing you and Lou a wonderful weekend.


I so love how you use vellum - and your card is a ray of sunshine!


What a sunny card on such a dreary day. It's STILL raining. :sigh: I understand your complaint. But, I had four goldfinches on the feeder and then in Hannah's tree, so there were some bright pops of color. :o)

It's funny, I'm so used to this template it didn't even occur to me at first that it was not the CAS one. :oP

I hope the sun comes out to play with you tomorrow.


P.S. Hi Lou! :o)
