Sending You Sunshine and Smiles

 When I saw the challenge at Can You Digi It to pick a season, I knew I'd need to pick SUMMER because it's the farthest one from Winter! We've finally had no snow this week, several days of sunshine, and my daffodils are blooming! The rebirth of my bulbs and fruit tree blossoms is always a reminder to me of God's promise of life after death.

I chose a sunflower digi from Clear Dollar Stamps that I love and paired it with Graphic45's French Country papers.

 Here's the great sketch I used from Bearly Mine:
