Happy Easter

Good Morning.  Is the weather nice where you are?  It was beautiful here in the Northeast US.  I loved it!!  My windows were open, fresh air in the house, walking around in T-shirt and shorts!  How fast things change though.  This week is very very cold.  It got down in the teens last night.  I am back in sweats with my windows closed and the heat back on.  Mother Nature can be such a tease.  

In a few weeks we will be celebrating Easter so we thought it would be fun to start on our cards at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  This week we are asking you to make an Easter card or project.  This is the card I will be giving to my mother.  We would also like to welcome 2 new DT's to our team.  Welcome Carrie and Chrizette!     We are excited to see what you create!

Flowers Everywhere

Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Saturday I got together with some friends to stamp.  It is always a really fun day.  This is one of the cards I made.  I think this Wee stamp is so pretty with all the flowers. 

Speaking of Flowers, that is our theme this week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  The flowers can be silk on the card or on the image.  As you can see I put them everywhere.  Spring is right around the corner in the Northeast and soon we will start seeing all the spring flowers being planted and we thought we would like to see them now on your cards.

Happy Wishes

Good Morning! I hope everyone is have a good week. It is starting to warm up here and I am loving it.  Spring and Fall are my 2 favorite seasons.  Not too hot and not too cold.  Yesterday hit 72 degrees!!!  I shut off my heat and opened my windows!  I was sad when it got cooler later in the day and I had to close up the house and put the heat back on.  The good news is I should be able to do the same today!!

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we have a fun and easy theme.  Ribbon and Pearls!!  These are some of my favorite things to use on a card.   As you know if you follow me, I love girly images and paper so Ribbon and Pearls were perfect for me!  Pull out those ribbons and pearls and play along!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Good Morning! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was quite which was great.  Work has been stressful and busy so I like my quite weekends.  I got my copics out and did some coloring.  Coloring for me is so relaxing.  That is one reason I love this craft.  I can get lost for hours making a card.

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we are thinking Green!  The theme is St. Patrick's Day!  My picture of my card did not come out well but I thought this image was adorable.  I usually use green as an accent color so using it as my primary on this card was a challenge for me.  I'm glad though.  We should all challenge ourselves once in a while to see how we do. 

Also, Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is looking for a few DT's.  Would you like to join the fun?  Kristen has put together a great group of ladies and we would love you to join us.  The details are posted on her blog.
