Spring Fun

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a fabulous weekend! The wind here is blowing like crazy and it's supposed to be bringing in another storm. I just hope that whatever it brings, it's in the form of rain, NOT snow! I'm DONE with snow for thise year! LOL! Although I know that it's still way too early for us to be expecting that. Enough about the cruddy weather! LOL!  I've had fun working on this card, but I'm still not sure if I like the way it turned out. Something is just "off" with it. *sigh*  It doesn't seem quite balanced to me. Oh well...they can't all be home runs, right? I couldn't get a decent pic of it either. This one is too dark, and the last one below is just too light.

Isn't she so cute carrying that precious little ladybug? She was fun to color. This is a Sassy Cheryl's digi image called Gentle Friends. She's colored with Copic Markers (listed below) and then cut out with oval Nesties and petite scalloped oval Nesties. I used a multi-liner to draw the horizon.

This angle shows the dimension (I do truly love lots of dimension on a card). I'm entering this into Sassy Cheryl's challenge 55 which calls for "something new". I used my new Cricut cartridge "Create A Critter" for the cloud. (only 27.99 at Hallmark Scrapbook!!) I just cut it in half and chalked around the edges. I also cut the fence out with the Expression as well, but I used my Gypsy and can't remember which cartridge is was from. Sorry! The butterflies are from an EK Success punch and I covered them with Diamond Stickles and added some Kaiser half backed pearls. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The DP is Tippy Toes from Nitwit Collections and the cardstock is Bazzill.

That's it for me today! Sure hope your weather is a lot better than what we're having right now. But I guess it's not too bad since I get to stay inside and craft! :-)  Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon!  Hugs!!
