dreaming of spring...

Can you believe we woke up to snow flurries AGAIN here. I can't remember a winter when we've seen this much snow. We still have snow piles from a few blizzards ago! (sigh) All this snow has me wishing spring could hurry up and get here, so you might just need some sunglasses for these next bright spring-themed projects.

Lizzie Anne Designs March Mix is available for sneak peeks. Lucky You has a mix of great Easter/spring themed images and sentiments. For this card, I randomly stamped the bee hive image on the cardbase. I went in and added a bit of white highlights with a gel pen. The tree image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored in with Koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil.


This next project uses a combination of sets; Birthday Banners, Fanciful Flourishes and Card Quotations. I stamped the flourishes on the book and the embossed with Stampendous Crystal EP. Love the sparkle it gives. Using a Versamark pen I was able to add some of the Crystal EP to the flower centers too. The grass was cut using the Easter Cartridge from Provo Craft.

Have a great weekend!
