Spring Elves - CK #79

Hi Friends and Happy Thursday! We were so lucky to have two lovely days with warmer weather and now it's back to being Winter again with temps in the 40's and 50's for the next several days and colder over night. I was hoping that this card with the Spring Elves would keep the warm weather around, but no such luck. Things have kind of settled down here. I'm still waiting to hear from my insurance company to find out how much of the car repair bill they are going to reimburse me for. I got a call from the Service Manager today, but I was swamped at work today and didn't have time to talk to her. I'm sure she is responding to the answers I gave on a survey that they sent me yesterday about my experience in their Service Department. <insert sly look and nasty laugh> I left a message so maybe she'll call me tomorrow. I really do want to have that conversation.

So, it's time for our Creative Knockouts challenge.  This week our theme is "Border Time." Sounds easy to me.  Here is my card.
