Yup......April Showers.......3 days and counting!

Okay maybe I should be thankful that it is NOT snow, like I have heard from so many of you.  Eek!  Rain is good......good for my gardens and good for me to stay inside and play!  And that's exactly what I will be telling my Husband!  :)

I made this simple sweet card for the CASology week #41 Giggle Challenge:

It only measures 4.5" x 3.5" but I do love how it came out.  I always struggle with Clean And Simple cards, I LOVE to hide behind layers!  This card uses Gina K Products, Pure Luxury Card Stock, Jelly Bean Green and Ivory layering weight, the flower stamp is from the Shine On! set and the sentiment is from Birds And Blossoms, the Yellow Gingham Ribbon also came in the new Kit, Spring Parade.  Colored with Copic Markers and Sakura pens, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and some adhesive pearls to finish it off.  I think for a little card it really packs a Spring Punch!
My next card was made from the inspiration I drew from the Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop, Spring has Sprung over at Stamp TV.  If you haven't hopped, you should, it's a great way to bring some beautiful spring images and inspiration indoors, especially if you still have snow on the ground, or are experiencing a gray day outside.

Another smaller sized card, 4.25" x 4.25" square.  I popped the top tulip on 3D adhesives and outlined it using a Sakura Clear Star pen, to add more depth and dimension.  This card also uses many GKD products;  Pure Luxury Card Stock, Ocean Mist, Grass Green, and Ivory, stamp sets; A Year Of Flowers 2, and Spring Has Sprung.   Designer Paper from DCWV, Stack 7.   Spellbinders, Classic, Beaded and Scalloped Ovals, StazOn Teal Blue ink, turquoise rhinestone accent.

I would like to thank so many of you for leaving me such kind and encouraging comments.  I can only imagine how lonely it would be out here on the World Wide Web (remember when we used to call it that?  lol)  without you!   I hope you continue to enjoy what I post......tell me what you'd like to see, tell me what you hate.  I did get rid of that "notification" thingie, should make your life easier.  Okay......honestly, I didn't even know it was even there, but now it's gone.  (thanks Regina).

In the near future I hope to post some other crafts I will be attempting, maybe a give-away or two, that would be FUN!

So, thanks for joining me.....I do appreciate it!
