Sunday and the Curtain Call Crew

Before I show my contribution to Curtain Call Challenge, I have a short story to share. Yesterday was the first day of Spring here in the Northern hemisphere and it snowed here in Iowa! The previous week had been gorgeous, with lots of sun and warm temperatures. All our snow was gone, which was quite surprising considering how much snow we had, and how quick the warm-up came. When my daughter saw the snow SHE CRIED! She wailed, "I'm so sick of snow!" Poor thing! I have to agree! I am SO ready for Spring weather!

So, onto my card. These are the colors for the week....very pretty purse for the inspiration.I'm not too sure I did it justice.....So I MAY take another stab at it this week. In the meantime, I'm anxious to take a look at the rest of the Crew's contributions.
