Easter and Spring



OK - try again - I started this post and realized I was on the wrong blog - so had to start over - and Of course I did not copy what I had written already - I was quite chatty.

I am enjoying the fact that now that spring has arrived you are able to go outside and take pictures of your creations. Of course yesterday it was a challenge because it was windy and I had many pictures with nothing in them because the card blew away on me. I was trying to avoid the shadows from the bow, hurrying so that it did not blow off, and did manage to get a bright spot of sunshine on the card. I am not going to complain - it is so nice to have warmer weather - today it is raining so no open doors to day - I can't wait till we have a 60 degree day - and most likely I will be working that day.

My card today is using an image from The Paper Shelter. On their blog - the challenge is to case someone's card - well I guess I was being lazy - I cased one of my own cards from last week - I liked the design - the colors are entirely different. I did use another handmade flower - this one is made with acrylic paint and coffee filters and some die cuts - I have a box where I am growing a garden of them. This is the small version. My next experiment is to see if I can make a poinsetta. Hopefully I have some dark red paint - if not - paint is cheap to play with.

Well I must go and try to get something accomplished or at least started. Everyone have a wonderful day and I hope you get to spend some time being creative.
