Betsy Bluebell Watering Her Garden of Tulips and RAK

I can feel Spring in the air and the weather warming up....yay.   Maybe I won't need to wear my socks so often.   LOL.  How's the weather in your area?   

Fun items I used for this card:
Image by Penny Black
DP by city Park and my stash
Spellbinder dies
Distress Ink
Punch by Martha Stewart
Flourish die by Hero Arts from Island Scrapbooking
Flowers by Inky Impressions
Leaf punch by EK
Ribbon by American Crafts
Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart
Pearl by Kaiser Crafts
Bead charm which I made  

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenge - "Challenge 214 - Embossing (I used heat embossing on the image)"
Creative Inspirations - "Challenge 209 - Spring Colours"
Craft Your Passion - "Challenge 154 - Ribbon or Lace"
Through the Craftroom - "Anything Goes"
Crafty Sentiment - "Flowers Galore"
Crafty Boots - "Flowers"
Love to Create - "Challenge 57 - Anything Goes"
Stamp with Fun - "Challenge 203 - Anything Goes"
A Gem of A Challenge - "Challenge 71 - Easter/Spring"

On to the awesome RAK....
I recently received happy mail from a dear friend.  Aren't these sweet?   I actually ate the candy in the red envelope before I took the picture but inserted the wrapper after.  Can't tell huh?   It fits a Ghirardelli Square chocolate just perfectly.  Yummy!!!   The Hello Kitty heart has 3 cute notepads when it's opened (see below).  Cute idea.  Lastly, a pkg. of popcorn inserted in the sweet wrapper.   We ate it while watching Hawaii Five-O.  Can't watch TV without munching on some goodies.

Here's a pix of the Hello Kitty notepads.  Love it!!!!
Thanks for stopping by.   Have a Scrap Happy Day!!!

I am so excited about spring! Winter was way too long this year. We had snow just yesterday. :( All the colors you used on your card make me want it to be spring even faster!

You are loved! It's always fun to receive some nicely crafted mail! We rarely receive regular mail (aside from bills!) these days, so that looks extra exciting! Enjoy! :)

I love your Spring card. It's so cute and colorful. The little girl is super cute too. The weather here can't seem to make up it's mind. It's pretty hot for a few days. Then it cools down. It's hard to know what to wear. The weather forecasters don't seem to always be right anymore either. What a fun and ono RAK. The best kind of RAK are ones that are ono and cute.
