I made this card for the SC card sketch challenge today. I put some fine cosmo orchid glitter on the flowers.It doesn't sparkle in the scan like it does in real life. I used the watercolor crayons and aqua painter to color with.

scrapbook pages

This weekend I did some scrapbooking. This is one of the spreads I did of some of the grandkids. I really like how it turned out. The flowers are made using both of the triple flower punches and then layed using brads. I'm trying to get at least 2 or 3 spreads finished each week or as much as my other life allows.

Today I wanted something to remind me that spring is REALLY coming. It has been cold (-13C)and windy. This is what I came up with. My card is 8 1/2 x 3 1/2. I used Carte Postale for the flowers and the chickadee is from Spring Song. I stamped the flowers with pretty in Pink and then used my markers to color the leaves and stems

Circle Card

I wanted to make a card that wasn't cased and also was not the standard size. This is what I came up with. I had fun coloring it. The sky is sponged with ink. The deer is colored with watercolor crayons and the aqua painter. The ribbon is the poly-twill ribbon from the Occasions mini.

My Other Life

This is pictures from my other life. These are my Babies. We have a 30'x60' greenhouse where we grow bedding plants to sell. If I miss a few days or weeks where I don't post it is because I am busy in the greenhouse. At this point we have no hired help, just me and my husband who helps part time. In May when sales start it will be very busy for about a month. It is so nice to have this touch of spring early as we still have lots of the white stuff and it probably won't be gone until the end of the month. I can get my spring fix starting the first part of March with the greenhouse, which helps make our long winters bearable.

Mother's Day is coming up fast and I wanted a card that was unique. While cruising SCS last week I cam across this, and thought it was a cute idea. I used Priceless stamp set for my main images and different word sets and an alphabet for the words. the base card stock is 4 1/4x 11, scored at 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 4 1/4, 5 5/8, 7 8 3/9 and 9 3/4 inches. the netural squares are 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2" 3" and the coloured squares are 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 2 3/4" and 3 1/4" square.
