Muse Challenge #209

Tulips along with daffodils are among the first welcoming signs of Spring.  Such pretty and delicate flowers to fill the senses.  I took inspiration for my card from Sonja K's pretty card below.  The elements that inspired me are: the oval window, lovely flower, sequins and the transparent ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by today :)

Take flight, spread your wings.....

My card was an Honorable Mention on the Casology Blog :)

I made this card for the "Text" challenge at Casology this week.  Spring is here, flowers and butterflies will be filling our senses soon.  Such a beautiful time of year!

Glad you stopped by today, happy Spring time to you :)

Pink Felt Bunny with Flowers

This is the first time I have used a die cut with felt (my pink bunny).  I was surprised by how easy the felt cut and made 6 pink felt bunnies for Easter cards.

I made this card with 3 challenges in mind:

1)  AAA Cards - Die Cuts, see photo below
2)  Inspired by all the little things - see photo below
3)  Simon Says Wednesday - Use more than 1 die or punch

Thanks so much for stopping by today; cold and rainy day here :)

Did someone say French Fries?

The other day I drove through Sonic for a hot dog, yup that's right a hot dog :)  I was sitting in my car eating my hot dog before going grocery shopping and I see this magpie swoop down and pick up a french fry on the ground, go up in a tree and chomp away.

Anyway, I was looking at the sketch for this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and this card popped into my mind. Here's the sketch:
Glad you stopped by for a visit today :)

Fusion - Paris Rain

I made this card for the challenge over at Fushion Card Challenge  this week.  My card uses the photo of people walking in the Paris rain as inspiration. I added touches of turquoise and yellow to accompany the lady in red.

Thanks for stopping by today, happy you're here :)

You Scream, I Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream :)

My card was an Honorable Mention on the Casology Blog :)

Ice Cream, my favorite dessert of all time.  Mint chocolate chip, always :)

The challenge over at Casology this week is the word "Melt" and the melting ice cream cone fits the bill perfectly, don't you think? 

I do have some ice cream in the freezer, think I'll have that for lunch :) or perhaps dessert after dinner tonight.

Happy you stopped by today.
We have a small amount of Spring snow on the ground.  It's good, we need the moisture :)

Muse Challenge #208

I took inspiration for this card from this week's challenge at the Muse Care Club.  We were given the cute Baby card below by Jenni Murray as our Muse.

I took my inspiration from the card layout and the gingham background paper.

Glad you stopped by today, we are having nice, warm Spring weather today :)

Muse Challenge #207

I made this card for this week's challenge at the Muse Card Club.  I was looking for Spring paper to use for the background on the card and found this brick-like paper in my paper drawer.  I added a purple bunny die cut, some flowers, leaves and a sentiment and my card was done. 

Tracy McNeely created the sweet Easter inspiration card below:

Thank you for stopping by today.
We are having sunny, warm weather on the front range.
Of course, this is Colorado so the snow may follow before April is over :)

A Little Birdie Told Me......

Happy Birds by WPlus9 had become one of my favorite stamp sets.  Not only are the birds adorable but I love the little sentiments that come with the set.

I originally made this card for one card challenge, however it fits three challenges this week, so I am entering it in all three.

The card concept - lime and aqua
Muse card club - see muse card below
Just us girls - Geometric

 So happy you dropped in today :)
