Welcome Spring

According to the calendar, we're now in spring. So why did I have to brush snow off my car over the weekend?!! I am so over this!! That's why I used this sweet image from Doodle Pantry called Spring Song Birdies for the anything goes challenge they are sponsoring over at Craft Your Passion. I simply had to use the bumble bee digital paper included in the set as adorable!!! I had a pack of gorgeous spring ribbons too from Really Reasonable Ribbon that needed to be put to use as well. All in the name of spring...would ya hurry up and get here!!!!!!! Join the anything goes challenge at Craft Your Passion for your chance at some Doodle Pantry goodness.

A Friend Like You

Today has been a beautifully sunny day!! A bit chilly when the wind kicks up, but, it's been sunny! I washed up some bedding just so I could hang it up outside. It's going to smell wonderful putting it all back on the beds.

With laundry all done (and The Walking Dead season finale tonight!!), I spent some time in my stamp room this afternoon. After all, I had one more progressive challenge to get done for this month, and I did it!!! This is for The Outlawz, using this adorable image from Gerda Steiner Designs called Cute Elephant with Balloon Bird. He is one cute elephant!! The balloon got sparkly thanks to my wink of Stella pen and some glossy accents. All my papers and even the die cut flowers were found in my scrap pile or on my desk. Perfect! Now I can't wait to see what the freebie image will be next month!!!

Happy Easter, From the Heart

It's getting close to the end of the month, so I'd better get busy with the progressive challenges I'm involved in!! Here is just one block of the Easter Trio set designed by From the Heart. I knew I had to work with the daffodils. It's been so cold and snowy (yes, I said snowy!!!) that my daffodils have decided to stay under ground for a while longer. It's the one spring bulb that the deer around here don't eat up!! I'm off to submit this to the stamp of the month challenge over at the From the Heart Blog.

Easter Fun Wishes

One would think a simple card like this shouldn't take ALL day to finish, but with all the interruptions I had, it most certainly did!! The image and sentiment are from Doodle Pantry, Easter Egg Ants to be exact. I created my own fun background punching out these splat shapes and gluing them onto white cardstock. Fun and simple!!

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Brown Sugar - Easter
Crafts for Eternity - Easter
QKR Stampede - Add a sentiment
Cute Card Thursday - Easter

Hopping By to Say Hi

Here's my card for the challenge reminder over at the Fresh Brewed Blog. Easter is on it's way, as is Peter Cottontail, so our theme is BUNNIES. I couldn't resist using this adorable image, Happy Hopper, from Fresh Brewed Designs. He is the sweetest bunny every, peeking around that yummy giant carrot. I paper pieced the carrot then wondered why I didn't also print off in green so I could paper piece the top. Oh well. The papers are from Lawn Fawn, with an autumn theme. I think they still work well this bunny. Hope you can join us this week at the Fresh Brewed Blog for some bunny fun.

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Crafty Boots - Spring  
Crafty Cardmakers - Spring
Eureka Stamps - Think Spring

Love U

Happy Hump Day!! And welcome back for the latest installment of Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. Being the last Wednesday of the month, we're pulling out a sketch from the vault and revisiting it. A good blast from the past sketch is always fun to so the second time around.  

Our sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs. It's exciting and sad at the same time...Meljen's Designs is closing in April. Read all about it HERE. In the mean time, she's having a 50% off sale this month so let's go shopping!!

Here's my card using the sketch and the sweet image from Meljen's Designs, Cat and Mouse. I don't think either of my two cats would be sleeping so peacefully with a mouse on top of them!! As a matter of fact, here's a picture of them sunning themselves...

It's not often I find them sleeping so peacefully so close together.
Now I hope you can join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

What Makes You Happy?!

Our CAS challenge over at The Outlawz is a fun one. I think we all know the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. We want to know what makes you happy...clean and simple style of course!! I'm happiest when I'm on vacation, at the beach, soaking up the warm sunshine, listening to the crashing waves, eating fresh seafood and feeling totally relaxed. So I went with a sponsor image, Cutie Bug Floats by Fresh Brewed Designs. Of course after the card was done, I wished I had embossed the green card. Losing my mojo has been a struggle when I sit down to make cards. Oh well, keep on keeping on!! I hope you can join our Sunday CAS challenge at The Outlawz. There are 5 free images from Fresh Brewed Designs up for grabs for our winner this month!!
