Thank you for being so thoughtful!

So after making THIS card the other day with this fabulous patterned paper, I had scraps left that just kept calling to me to be used up! See? The hoarding thing? Yeah...I'm workin' on it! Getting better already!

I am totally loving these colors! So warm and springy! After repeatedly asking for snow...yes I am sorry...I really wanted it and now I don't anymore...I promise...well, now I am asking for spring! So if nothing else...my card is showing a little sun today! (Although it was close to 70 here in Kansas yesterday! Talk about serious spring fever now!) OK sorry...back to the card...

I have had a couple emails asking about this paper and you know I am terrible at supply lists! All I know is it was on clearance. So I had to buy it. But I have an email out so I will let you know when I find the name! It is gorgeous! Double sided and has lots of patterns on one piece! I so wish I would have bought more!

OK so I am beginning to ramble! Going to stop now! Have a good day! :)  Except I should also tell you about my Lemon Tart flower!  I made that from a flower svg file on my computer and cut it out with the Cricut!  I took 2 flowers and rounded each petal out with this tool thing I have that has a round end...sorry I have no idea what it is....and I used a little mouse pad underneath that so it gave each petal lots of dimension!  Does that make sense?  Clear as mud?  Rambling again...bye!

  3. Beautiful paper...let me know what line is it when you find it!
    And the round thingy to round the petals..could that be an embossing stylus? just helping you remember! :D
    I'm no good at those things either!

  4. I thought part of being a chick was to change our mind all the time :) You just wanted snow for a nice photo, a snowman and hot cocoa but then you are good with spring right .... ME TOO!!! Love the card and that paper just screams spring is coming ..... the green is for all the leaves and I have orange tiger lilies and yellow tulips ..... PERFECT colors as far as I am concerned. I do love that flower!!!

  11. Such a beauty! As soon as I saw your card I had to run to my scraproom and check my paper stash 'cause I knew I had it! The paper is Scenic Route-the Ashville Line.

  12. That is beautiful! It's been foggy and gloomy her in Sacramento so those colors are really making me yearn for spring. I think Tejal is right. It sounds like you used a embossing stylus. Fantastic card as always.

  26. This paper is really pretty! I love how you combined the patterns and added the flower to accent it! That green button is perfect too, such a "soft" look to it (if that makes sense, lol!!).
