This is a Stampin Up flower stamp done in white embossing, cut and finger curled to give a bit of a flare. My paper came from Michael's and is American Craft that has one side print and the other in coordinating plain color. Love using this type of paper because you know it matches. We had 4 inches of snow again but today the sun is shinning so it is a beautiful day. Hope you are all having a lovely day also.

This is part of a Stampin Up set done very simply to say " I love you dear friend".
I kind of copied the layout from one of my SBS 5 sisters Janine. Liked the LO so I
changed it up a bit and there you have it. Good week to all of you.

Here is my do over of my robin. A bit more spring like with the soft pink tones. Actually I'm not sure which of the two I like better, the spring or the fall one. If you have an opinion just let me know. This robin is a Stampin Up stamp done with water colored pencils.

This little robin is part of a Stampin Up set.I guess when I did this robin I wasn't really thinking spring.This looks like an autumn card . Well I will have a re-do in spring colors but for now this is it. Used my water colored pencils and some matching colored cardstock and a couple brads. Easy card.

This simple card is done with a butterfly stamp by Judith, although I'm not sure as the stamp is not identified. The phrase is Hero Arts. Stamped with black and matted simply on black and white with some red brads for a bit of color.

This card was made using an image sent to me by one of my SBS 5 sisters Cheryl. I believe it's a Stampin Up but I am not positive. Just used my colored pencils and a pre-textured card from Lasting Impressions, matching envelope in the green stripes. I'll just write a nice little note inside and send it off to a dear old friend.

Wow isn't this card just beautiful ! I got a big surprise in my mailbox today and this card was part of it. Thanks so much to my dear friend Janine who sent it all the way from Canada. I was so surprised and pleased with the packet and I can't thank you enough Janine. I'm anxious to get started with all you sent and have a surprise for each of my class on the 25th. of this month. LOL ( that to me means lots of love) and thank you dear friend.

Can you do the Irish Jig??? These cutie patootie's can and they sure are cute! Love the looks on their faces. A little green beer would do nicely about now. These stamps are Art Impression and were done with just water colored pencils. Can't help but take this stamp out each year and send it to someone. Don't have too many Irish friends but who cares if you are really Irish or not. Happy St. Patty's Day in advance.

This is another card that is kind of "manly" ( is that a word?). Focused on the great paisley paper. Both the randon stamped bottom paisley and the hello are Hero Arts. Easy card and I think it's appropriate for either or but I'm going for a man.
Have a great week to all of you. The sun is shining brightly here in Michigan and that in itself is a wonderful sight to behold.

This little guy was dug out of the $1 bin at Michael's and I used him in a card for my grandchildren Cal & Ellie. Colored pencils and a little bling. The phrase is a Hero Arts Stamp. I watermarked some Easter eggs which are Hero Arts also.
