Spring Forward


Happy Tuesday! 
Thanks for stopping by. We spring forward and lose an hour this weekend. I don't really care for losing the hour but I am so ready for spring, or should I say warmer weather. Here in Colorado spring means snow storms. March and April are our slowest months, so should I say I am looking forward to summer :)
Today's card share is one made for this weeks color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers, Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight. I used the set You're Wonderful along with the Best Day Ever set that you can earn free with a $50 order.

I am also entering this one in a few challenges

Here it is....






I know you have waited all day on this post for The Stamps of Life. I got so many goodies in my kit that I created things that I cannot show you yet because they haven't been released so...
You will have to check back on the 15th 

This Charming flip it card set I could go ahead and use, it makes a cute anniversary or valentines card you can decorate only one side or both as I did.
I also used a new paper pack  (Love Story) that Stephanie released the first of this month

Weekend Retreat Fun



I shared this one this morning on A Scrap N Place blog, and just now getting to share on my own blog. I held a little mini retreat at my home this weekend. We made lots of great things and had lots of fun, but let me tell ya, I am Beat! 

To make my card I used some polka dot paper from Canvas Corp and a cute bunny from memory Box. The die behind the bunny if from CAS-ual Fridays. 

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with my first post for my new DT, The Stamps of Life.

Longing for Spring




I am also on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today, sharing this card that uses an older set,


I don't know about you but here in Colorado it has snowed at some point during the day, everyday for the last two weeks and we have snow in our forecast this weekend and next week as well, even though we need the moisture, I am longing for spring. This set depicts spring with the birds and the gorgeous roses and it's so fun to color. 
Thanks for stopping by and stay warm

Wishes Your Way





Hi Stampers, and thanks for stopping by. 
The card I am sharing today I made for a couple challenges one being the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers this week of Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzaz and pool Party. I loved this color combo so I had to play along.
To make my card I started with a Whisper White card base A2 size, next I cut a panel out of Pool Party the same length but a half inch shorter on the sides. I them stamped my flowers from the Crazy About You set in Blackberry Bliss, Masked them off and stamped the leaves from Kinda Eclectic in Pear Pizzaz. The butterfly from Butterfly Basics, was stamped in Pool Party and punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch and a tiny rhinestone was added to it to finish the card.

I also was inspired by this weeks sketch at 


I am also entering it in the challenge at 
 and 

I hope the small butterfly and rhinestone count as mini

Wings




Hi there, thanks for stopping by. 
Quick card share using the Butterfly Basics and Butterfly Thinlits die. I started with a white card base A2 size and cut a panel 5 1/2 x 4 and impressed the large butterfly using Bermuda Bay ink, and then cut the smaller butterfly using Whisper White and added an embellishment to the center, then colored the center rhinestone to match the butterfly. Before placing the panel on my base I stamped the border also with Bermuda Bay. 

I am entering this one over at 
Less Is More for their Wings challenge.
