Somebunny Loves You!

Hello!!! Happy Spring??? It was wonderful with our touch of Spring last week here in New England, but this week we are back to a touch of winter. The temps have dropped and we have had some frost that is threatening the plants that started to bloom. It is back to winter coats most days and I like a lot of others are fighting a major cold from the extremes we are feeling. I want Spring back!!!!

This card is for the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge this week. I am posting late because of feeling lousy. Anyway the you still have lots of time to play along still. The theme this week is Easter so let's see your Easter best, eggs, bunnies, whatever reminds you of the holiday.

Everything Flowers!

Hello, Happy Spring!!!!!!! The weather here in New England is gorgeous! It is sunny, in the 80's and there is a warm breeze. A perfect day and tomorrow is going to be even better! I can't remember a March day this nice. I hope we don't pay for it later.

We have another wonderful challenge for you this week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations, in honor of Spring the theme is FLOWERS! You can have theme as your image, as embellishments or as your back round, the more the better. How fun and easy is that so come play with us this week, just hop over to the Going Grey blog see what the ladies have created to inspire you and play along.

When I was creating this card I thought it needed something to make the image stand out from the card. After trying different things I thought of a white doily. This doily that I used had a much different life before I "rescued" it. We at my nieces wedding at a really nice place. When they started serving the fresh fruit cup they had them on these beautiful large doilies. It was so delicate looking I couldn't stop looking at it. I decided I had to have them. I started asking everyone at my table for theirs. My husband was not amused at what I was doing, but I walked out with about 10 of them in my purse. I have had them now for almost 2 years and still have 4 left. So you never know when that next great craft item will land in front of you!

A Tea Party!

Hello and TGIF!!!! I am posting today after a snowy day at home yesterday. We finally got snow here and a day off from school. It gave me a chance to curl up inside and work on some cards that needed to be tweaked before I called them finished.

I am also posting today because I was chosen as the featured artist over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog. This is the card I created for their challenge that starts today. Theme for their challenge is a card with a long saying or verse (so Happy Birthday or Love You etc. won't work). At first I thought it was going to made my usual square card and remembered this tea pot template in an old issue of Magnolia Ink. Of course it gave me a perfect excuse to get this adorable Saturated Canary digi. If you notice the invite is on a tag that is attached to the tea pot cover. The card doesn't open you pull it out by pulling up on the cover. It was really fun to make the tea pot!

Fussy and Fancy is a fabulous challenge blog and they are super wonderful so be sure to pop over leave some love and hopefully play along with them.
