Hello Spring

Good afternoon!
My sincere apologies to my team and Kelly.
I scheduled this post by accident for next week...Yikes...what was I thinking?

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter.

Over at Creative Knockouts we have an amazing
challenge for you this week and like always it is sponsored.

Challenge #239 - Outside Fun

Thank you to our sponsor 
Prize: 3 Images

I simply adore their images and had a blast coloring up
It was fun to break out my copic markers and two different dies sets from 
Gina Marie Designs. The paper is from Stampin' Up and Taylored Expressions.
I used a dauber around the edges of the ovals to add color for
a little pop, thanks to the advice of a friend.

Please come and join us this week
for our fun filled challenge at Creative Knockouts,
we would love to see your work.

Have an amazing day and thanks for sharing this card with me.

Happy Easter

Good morning! 
What a wonderful weekend we had.
We sure were blessed while walking in a park
this weekend with a friend to enjoy nature
and see an amazing sign of spring.
Lots of geese where swimming in the cold river
and they were even standing on the snow and ice still.
Love this sign of spring.

Today, is my day to post a card for The Project Bin
The stamp set used is
Clear stamps, springtime, card making, paper craft, stamping, Easter, tulips
I chose to use the cross as it is just about Easter
It is so much fun that their are three stamp sets that you can color.
On the cross, I used Copic Markers
and added only a bit of color to high light it.
It was a blast to get inky with the vellum from Stampin' Up.
Spray adhesive is what I will be looking for to stick it down next time.
To add color to it, I covered the panels with ink and then whipped off
the excess.
My work in progress is to find a way to take a good picture
with lighting in my new craft area which is dark corner.
Would love to get to the real color as possible for you.

My card layout is from
Two-for-One Saturday: Mojo Monday and Freshly Made Sketches รข€“ STAMP WITH BRIAN
A clean and simple design using just pattern vellum paper and Concord grape paper
with pearls.
Please hop over to The Project Bin blog to see even more 
inspiration from my team mate Kelly
and the rest of our team each day of the week.

Have an amazing day
may it be one filled with tons of little blessings.

Thank you so much for joining me today

Another Birthday....

Happy Monday morning!
It is The Project Bin Monday
and here is my latest creation for you to see!

I was asked to create a very clean and simple card 
in these colors and papers. They picked out the stamp set
So, I pulled out my markers
and colored up the stamp in Real Red and Basic Black. 
Then I used a Huffing Technique before stamping it down.
It has been so long since, I used this technique.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafting With Friends - Challenge #62 - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers Challenge - Challenge #143 - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Challenge #207 - Let's Celebrate

Be sure to come check out The Project Bin 
for their stamps and all of the awesome inspiration 
they have to share with you!
Denise the owner does an amazing job of designing these stamps.

Thank you so much for sharing my card today!
Have an amazing week ahead.

Spring brings beautiful things

Good Monday morning!
We had quite the snowy weekend 
but the end result is simply stunning outside.
Although the snow is beautiful,
we are looking forward to spring time at some point.

Today, is The Project Bin Monday, it is my
day to share a brand new creation with you.

The Egg stamp and sentiment are from our 
brand new set called Spring Zen. The egg was colored using Prisma
pencils and highlighted with Wink of Stella. 
 The dies are from Gina Marie Designs.
 It was a blast to get my sponges out
and ink up the paper, all with Stampin' Up inks (barely banana,
 daffodil delight, cajun craze, peach parfait, lucky limeade).
Pearls and diamensionals

Denise has designed another fantastic stamp set.
You can color the images, keep them black and white
with or without these simply fabby sentiments.
The inspiration is simply endless with this set.
Clear stamps, springtime, card making, paper craft, stamping, Easter, tulips
