April Showers

April showers bring May flowers, there most likely aren't too many people who haven't heard this little saying :)  The challenge over at The Card Concept this week is April Showers and although the lovely photo provided for the challenge has flowers and boots I chose to focus on the "showers".

This little girl stamp called Patsy from Whipper Snapper is adorable and I always like bringing her to life with color and sparkles.  I used a new paper pad by Lawn Fawn for the background and umbrella, love the plaids and colors in this paper pad.

Here is the inspiration photo:

Thanks for stopping by today, those April showers are coming down at our house today :)

Love brings us home....

I like the sentiment on my card "Life takes us in unexpected places, Love brings us HOME".  I made this card for the challenge at Muse Card Club this week.  One of my favorite stampers, Kay Miller, provided the Muse card for us and here it is:

Thanks for stopping in today.
Oh, Auntie Em "There's no place like Home"

Less Is More - Stripe

I made this card for this week's challenge at Less Is More, challenge #325 - Stripe.  The coffee cup is from Stampin' Up, the donut girl and sentiment are from Neat & Tangled; I just love this set it's so darn cute.  Don't know about you but I can always enjoy a cup of coffee and a donut. 

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Dogwood Branches

This week's challenge at Casology is the word Grow.  Again, I'm trying my hand at CAS cards and although I may have missed the mark this week I'm going to give it a go and enter my card in the challenge.  I used Memory Box dogwood branch stamp and stamped it twice.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for popping by today.
The flowers are starting to bloom in the foothills, won't be long now :)

Muse Challenge #212

It's been some time since I made a monochromatic  card and I must say I'm happy with this one.  I made this card for the challenge at the Muse Card Club this week.  This week's Muse card is by Jenni Murray, here it is:

Glad you stopped by today, have a nice evening :)

Amazing Butterflies

My card was a Featured Member this week at the Muse Card Club :)

I'm a little late with my card for the Muse Card Club challenge this week; somehow time got away from me.  For my card I used a butterfly stamp from Inky Antics and did each in 2 blended colors using my favorite Zig markers.  The Muse card this week is by Tracey McNeely and a pretty card it is (see below):

I took my inspiration from the multiple, colorful spheres on Tracey's card.

Thanks for visiting today, a lovely Saturday here in the foothills :)
