Created this Welcome Summer Card using:

2. pattern papers from DCWV Summer Matstack
3. Paper Smooches Summer Groves stamp for 'Welcome Summer' sentiment
4. Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy Circle1 Card
5. Cricut cartridge Life Is A Beach for Surfboard Border which I trimmed to use only 2 of the Surfboards
6. pearls 

Photographed outside where here in Central TX it has warmed up 50s-60s. The pool pump is turned off until last frost so the water is not clean; thus photographed the card inside the pool cleaning net hanging on our fence.

Photographed near the Blue Bonnets that are greening up in my backyard. We planted 3 Blue Bonnet plants we bought at Home Depot 5+ years ago and they have bloomed each yr. They reseed themselves. Also after they have stopped blooming I burst the seedpods & then plant more seeds and share seeds with neighbors. They will bloom in the Spring.
