Spring on In!

WOW! Time is just flying by.... only one week until Easter! I have been busy with some custom graduation announcement orders, and haven't had much time to just have fun in the scrap room. But, Easter has always been one of my favs! I love all of the bright, fresh colors, and thoughts of summer. So, I just had to make a little time for a fun card.

I used Ripe Avocado Perfect Match cardstock from PaperTrey Ink as the base card, measuring 6" square. The plaid paper is by My Mind's Eye and is called, "Check Him Out" from the Just Dreamy line. I used my Scalloped Oval Spellbinder die to make the "egg" shaped shaker. A simple oval cutter was used to cut the window, off-setting it slightly to mimic an egg shape. The adorable image is a Huggabugg from Stampingbella. I colored it using my prismacolors and mineral spirits.

Suzanne's Thank You Cards

A very good friend of mine, Suzanne, recently celebrated her 50th! You go girl!!! She had a wonderful party hosted by some friends. The theme was animal print along with her favorite saying, "Whoo Whoo!" She asked me to create some Thank You cards that she could give to her friends. Here's what I came up with.....
The cardstock is Bazzill in shimmer sandy tones. The flocked leopard cardstock is Anna Griffin Peyton Collection from Hobby Lobby. I embellished with gemstones and Prima flowers. I recycled and embellished a plastic box to place them in. Enjoy!

And, I'm BACK!

I cannot believe it's been a year since I've posted! I know I've lost some followers, but live happens and family is the most important. It was a rough year for me... the oldest left for college at the US Air Force Academy, and then changed his mind. Praise GOD - he is now enrolled in Youth and Family Ministry at Lubbock Christian University and is loving it! Those events swallowed my entire Spring/Summer, and next thing I knew, it was Christmas. Hopefully, I can get back in the swing of things with my creativity.... Stay tuned!
