PTI May Blog Hop



It's that time of the month again!! I so look forward to Papertrey Ink's Monthly Blog Hop. This month with it falling on Memorial Day, it's a nice end to a wonderful 3 day weekend! It was a great three days of swimming and relaxing after several weeks of chaos. Hopefully, it will prove to be a nice rejuvenation to push through to the end of all this work around the yard!

Anyway, for May's blog hop we are asked to utilize the color yellow in some way.
Here is my card:



Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to check out everyone's amazing cards...
