Hello, Everyone:

Hope you're enjoy your Spring days. It might have been Spring in central Alabama, but it was cool here all last week -- mid 40's nights/60-70 days. [Would like this weather all the year around--no AC nor heating needed!] BUT yesterday SUMMER hit--was 92 with 96 predicted for today! WOW!

Before I get to my cards, wanted to tell you about Digi #90 "Super Boy": My youngest Grandson, Jordan, HAD to be Superboy on his first day of school. This was inspired by him but I took the J's off everything so you could put whatever letter [or not] you want on his shirt, bag and shoes. The inspiration card was posted on 30 April. So, have a look!

I'm trying to broaden my cardmaking skills to include all styles--I'm basically Clean & Simple so it's a real challenge for me to do otherwise, but I'm have fun trying. So here goes the cards I've made:
