Spring has sprung

It's time for a Daisy Doodles free week card! This is the week in between the DD challenges that the DT does a free week card. That means that we can make anything we want with any image available to us and post it on our blog! this week I chose the Spring Has Sprung from the Spring/flower section at the store.
I have been so busy with so many other things that I had forgotten about this free week totally! Rhonda had mentioned that she had her card done and I was so glad that she did or I would  not have gotten mine done.
As I entered my craft room, the phone rang. It was a patient of mine from years ago. She and her husband became patients in 1986 and I have remained friends with them ever since. They have homes in  Maine and here in Florida. The doctor's office was not a close drive, but they loved him and didn't want to find any other closer to their home since they were only here for a few months every year. I have been to visit them in Maine and my DH  and I have taken them to dinner and they have taken us out as well. They even call us when they need a plumber!!!! Gert called today to say that Brooksie went with God yesterday, peacefully in his sleep. He was born in January 1915...you can do the math. They haven't been able to travel to Florida for a few years due to a couple of  Gert's falls. This card is for Gert---she is so card worthy...she just loves the cards that I make. She won't even think of sending the card gift sets that I have made for her.
The Fancy Tag is brand spanking new! I had rec'd two GCs for I Heart Papers and just spent them last week when the new Spellbinders had arrived. It was tough to choose but I managed to get 5 sets of Spellbinders, and I LOVE them all. The circle fits right in the middle. Spellbinders plans that, don't you think?
The story was long so will leave you, now...thank you for coming by!

This is stunning. The new die cut caught my eye right away and as I mentioned before daffodils are my favorite. Sorry you had the need to make this one, but it is lovely and I'm sure will brighten Gert's day.
