Is Spring Finally Here???

Boy I hope so.  Finally we have a sunny day and it might even get in the lower 60’s.  Woohoo!!  It’s been a long time coming.  I can’t wait to throw open all the windows and let some warm air flow through the house.

Today I’m sharing another birthday card.  It seems like no matter how many I make, it’s never enough.  Daisies and yellow say ‘Spring’ to me, so that is my theme for today.

This card features the magnificent Shasta Daisy die and Burlap Border die, both from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The simple double-loop bow was made with Daffodil Swirl Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view all my Bow-it-All Tutorials on my YouTube channel.

Really Reasonable Ribbon and Crafty Secrets – What a fabulous combination!

Hi everyone.  I’m excited to say that Really Reasonable Ribbon is teaming up with Crafty Secrets this month.  Be sure to head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog all week to see what other fabulous projects the RRR Design team comes up with.

There are so many fabulous goodies available at Crafty Secrets that I had a hard time making my selections.  Today I used the Digital Flowers Printable Sheet along with Grand Greetings Digital Stamp set.

I printed the digital image and sentiment on ivory cardstock and inked all the edges with gathered twigs Distress Ink.  I also added some natural mulberry paper which I love.  My beautiful bows were made with my Bow-it-All V2.0 tool using ribbons from my April assortment.  To view all my bow making videos, please visit my YouTube channel.

I’m entering my card in the following challenges:

The colors on this digital image worked perfectly with the colors in the new April Ribbon Club Assortment.  I just love an aqua and coral color palette – looks like spring!

Be sure to hop over to the Crafty Secrets Blog and visit them this month too.  Their design team will be showcasing projects featuring Crafty Secrets designs along with the April Ribbon Club Assortment this month.  It will be fun to see what they create as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
