Happy Easter, Passover!

I was lucky to have yesterday off so my plan to hide in my craft room all day which I did..sort of...I get "sidetracked" very easily and something got in my head that I needed to re-organize my buttons and brads.  I have about 15 of those plastic jewelry/bead storage containers.  So I decided to sort my buttons by color and put them in mason jars.  I enlisted my daughter and we spent a couple hours going through everything and I'm happy that everything is more organized.  I am a neat freak and it makes me happy to have organization!  So needless to say I didn't spend as much time crafting as I wanted to but I did get a couple cards done.
Love this sweetie from Sylvia Zet.  Colored with Copics, floral paper is Doddlebug.  The leaves I cut with my new Meadow Leaf die, flowers are Wild Orchid and the little corner piece and buckle are Close To My Heart (re-discovered them while organizing lol).  Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

High Hopes Guest Designer

So I was so excited to win the High Hopes Challenge and be asked to be the guest designer for this week's Dots & Stripe's Challenge.  Here's my card:
You can tell I'm anxiously waiting for warm weather!  We had more snow yesterday and it's cold!  I've had enough now.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I'm hoping to go see Oz this weekend!

Waiting For Spring

After a foot of snow last Friday we had three days of 50 degree weather, got spoiled, now we are back to low 30's and I woke up this morning to find it snowing.  I'm so done with winter.  So I made myself a pretty, bright, Easter card!
Image is Lili of the Valley (which I'm waiting for my latest order to arrive!!), colored with Copics.  The paper is Doodlebug and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid.  Ok off to drag myself to work happy Thursday!

Time Change

I don't know about you but this time change messes me up.  I set my alarm way early this morning so hopefully I will fall asleep tonight.  Spent most of the day in my craft room yesterday while re-watching the first season of The Walking Dead (best show ever!!!).

Made this card with the new acrylic set from Penny Black Chick to Chick.  I'm so happy these are available through Penny Black I was so sad when Elzybells closed down.  I've mostly be a lazy bum today, got everything done early so we could hang out on the couch and watch the race.  Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

High Hopes Clarabelle And Riley

High Hopes remains one of my most favorite stamp companies and I really love their "farm" stamps.  I've used Clarabelle and Riley for this card.
I colored this with Copics.  I took some twine and twisted it around, it's glued down with crystal lacquer and then I added the brads for a little extra support!  I'm entering this in High Hopes "Anything Goes" Challenge.  Hope everyone is having a good week.
