Take Time To Smell The Roses

How often I forget to do this.  We get so busy with work, paying bills, taking care of family, etc. that we forget to enjoy life.  Even this Spring, I have been so disgusted with our cold, rainy days, that I forget to notice that things really are in bloom - heather, tulips, hyacinths, daffodils.  It took flowering trees to catch my attention.
This digital sentiment is by Doodle Pantry.  I finally learned how to make paper roses - I love them.  Leaves are stamped (Kitchen Stamps).  "All my love" is Stampin Up.
