Happy Monday Morning!
I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and are ready to start your week!
Has spring made it's way to your neck of the woods yet? It has been hanging around my house for a couple of weeks now and I am loving it! The weather is just perfect with sunny, blue skies...I hope it stays around for awhile longer. Our springs here in LA (lower Alabama) are usually short-lived...then comes summer with all it's heat and humidity...but in the meantime it's.....SPRING!
And speaking of SPRING...it's time for Challenge Me Monday over at
This week's challenge is.... "Looks Like Spring"
The challenge is to create a project with any spring theme. Remember to use at least one cut from any
For the challenge this week, I decided to try my hand at a step card...
* Papers - I used scraps! Isn't it great...love when I can make something and use up scraps!
* Tree - Cricut cartridge "Freshly Picked", apple tree cut at 4 inches.
I used the Sizzix embossing folder "Burlap" on the bag and Cuttlebug's "Divine Swirls on top of tree.
*Gnome - "Freshly Picked" - cut at 4 1/2 inches. I used the Cuttlebug folder "Candy Cane Stripes" on his hat. You can't really tell in this picture, but I also used white flocking powder on his beard.
*Sign - "Freshly Picked" cut at 2 1/4 inches. I used tiny brown brads in each corner to look like nails.
*Spring sentiment - "Straight From the Nest" cut at 1 1/2 inches.
I used my white gel pen to add some stitching lines. I added a tiny white flower (from a MS punch) to the dot of the letter i. A tiny gem in the center is the finishing touch!
*The grass is also from a Martha Stewart punch.
*Some great red twine (I love this stuff) and a button complete the card.
