A beautiful day and win

Good morning all ,I hope that this post finds you all well and happy.Can you believe that today is the last day of March? Where in the world does time escape to anymore? The sun is shining here and the temps are warming up.We are expecting temps in the 70's this week.Can I get a hooray ! I am so excited to think that I might just get to start clearing my flower gardens off soon.The above pic was taken on 3-18-14.Like a kid watching cookies bake in the oven I have been waiting for this to happen....
Finally happened this morning.LOL!

Now that you have seen those pretties let me share with you another one....

Isn't it gorgeous!!!!! I was the blessed person to win this beautiful postcard from Debbie of Woolensails.It never ceases to amaze me at the talent out in the blogging world!Debbie has a big heart and so much awesome talent,she sews, needle punches,paints and designs her own patterns.Debbie painted  Frakturs several years ago and sold them on Ebay,she really should start it once more.I am sure that I have left stuff off the list but if you will check her blog out you will learn more about her.Please stop by and say hello.
 As soon as I received my beautiful postcard,I knew it had to be framed.So I dug around in my collection of frames and found one that would work.Never being able to leave things alone I pulled out my paints and started painting.LOL! Here is the end result...

I am so thankful to own of Debbie's Fraktur designs.Thank you so much Debbie! It is one of my most treasured possessions. 

Well I am off to finish a few March projects and will be back soon to share them with you all.May God bless each of you.Sunshine and hugs,Jen

OK... How about a hip hip hooray! for the gorgeous flowers. It has been so cold here and I still have a few inches of snow where mine will be popping up. So I will just enjoy yours. What a lovely postcard you got. Great looking frame too.
Have an awesome day and enjoy the sun.
Hugs Marg

I love the frame you made, perfect for a fraktur design. I have a ton of wood frames, guess I need to start making things to put in them.

Hi Jen, I am so envious of your beautiful daffodils...our snow is slowly melting, we are making headway, but it will be awhile before I see the daffodils in my yard...What a wonderful win, Debbie does such wonderful work, she is a vary talented lady. Your frame is perfect for the Fraktur...Looking forward to seeing your up and coming projects...Sending greetings from Maine..
