This was definitely "one of those days." Things happening all day long with not much to show for it! And it's still not over!!!! Need to get in some of my exercises yet! Well I did create this very simple card, using the April 2014 Stamp of the Month, Spring Medley, found at From the Heart. I've had this beautiful image colored for two weeks now, but just now getting around to making something with it. Sounds like I've been having "one of those months!!" But hey, the Pens won tonight, so I'm happy!!! Let's go Pens!!!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! Hard to believe it's here. Believe me when I say spring has been long awaited for, and I'm so happy to see the sunshine. We are having a clean and simpleEaster challenge over at The Outlawz. I pulled out some dies that I haven't used in forever starting with the bunny and clouds. Mmmmmm, chocolate bunnies...so delicious! I ALWAYS start by biting off the ears first! The grass is actually a punch, found buried in the depths of my punch drawer. I love these clouds by Paper Smooches, the outline ones are so quirky and fun. Join us this week for some Easter inspiration, clean and simple style.

Sweet Peas or Daisies

Back with you for our latest CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. The theme is to create a birthday card using one of April's flowers - daisy or sweet pea. I remembered having a wonderful set from Doodle Pantry called Daffodil & Sweet Peas that I used the color version of along with a scrap piece of paper from the Bright Smiles Digital Paper Pack. Quick and easy, that's for sure. I've been struggling with wanting to go into my craft room the past few days. I think once this cold finally decides to leave, you'll have to pull me out kicking and screaming!!! Fingers crossed!
