Is it spring yet??

Well not here it isn't!! Today it is dreary & damp....not spring like at all! But....I did make a very spring-ish card with one of the very adorable Magnolias from last year!



I actually *just* ordered this Strawberry Tilda from 7 Kids College Fund the other day.....& she's on her way to me right now. I really wanted to use her NOW (I'm not very patient) & lucky for me I had a few images of her in my stash!! I colored her with my Prismas, added Stickles to the flower & some Glossy Accents to the watering can. The papers are SU (one of those darn In Colors I can never remember) & K&Company Berry Sweet. The flower in the corner was cut using my Blossom Two Nesties....the raffia lace is from my friend Nikki's shop....I tied a strawberry charm to that using some tulle.....of course I decided to do this AFTER the card was all glued together! I have a habit of doing that....thinking of something that would look perfect AFTER it's all done. I managed to use my pokey tool to get the tulle through....but I highly suggest adding things like that BEFORE you glue the layers together, lol!




I was hoping you could see the shiny watering can in the closeup, but I'm not seeing it. Trust me, it's shiny :)


***New addition!!!!!! Click HERE to see the magnificent new Ritz microfine glitter at 7 Kids College Fund! Soooo many colors....how is a girl to choose????


Well this is the beginning of the rest of my week. Tomorrow is Matthew's basketball party (they had their tournament last Saturday), Thursday is his LAST den meeting before crossing over into Boy Scouts, Friday is our school dance & Saturday is the Pinewood Derby!! I'll try to sneak something in during that time, but if you don't hear from me you know where I am!! Thank you for visiting!!!

I'm sorry, but I had to laugh because I can't tell you how many times I've glued layers down, then thought, "hmmm...I'd like to add..." LOL. Your card is adorable! Gina L

Wow great job on the coloring. Love the color combo and love all the embellies you put on here. So cute! I know what you mean about not getting enough time to play. I think I have stamps I haven't used yet and that's just not right! LOL!
