Spring Is In The Air

Good morning everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
Has spring arrived at your house yet?  It's been here in my little corner for the last few weeks.  The temps have been in the 80's, trees are budding, bees are buzzing and there is a fine, yellow covering of pollen on everything standing still!  Wonderful for the allergies!

Speaking of spring....we have a "springy" challenge for you this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge (Challenge #103) is called...
"Spring Is In The Air"
There are two requirements for this week's challenge:
1.  Use at least 3 flowers on your project.
2. Make sure that your project has at least one Cricut cut.

When I started thinking about spring, I thought of new spring clothes (I can't help it).  Clothes shopping made me think about this adorable new stamp I just ordered from my very own, personal, Close To My Heart consultant, Bobby from Cricut Couple.  So, I put this fun stamp together with some fabulous roses from Cricut's Art Philosophy cartridge....and...this is what I came up with....

(doesn't she look like she has been on a fun spring shopping spree?)

* Tag - Inkissentials #8 Manila tag
* Printed paper - Paper Studio - "Ooh La La! paper stack
* Solid paper - Recollections
* I used a MS punch on the top and bottom of the black layer
* Image - Close To My Heart - "Everyday Life" stamp set
* Roses - Cricut's "Art Philosophy (cut at 2.5 and 3.5 inches)
* Glitter - Recollections - "Blush"

* I cut two ovals, stamping and inking the edges of the first oval.  Then I used pop dots to adhere the two ovals together.  I also added a few black gems for a bit of bling.
* After assembling the roses, I gave them a spritz of spray adhesive and sprinkled on Blush glitter.  A bit of black tulle added just a bit of style!

Ok, that's my project for this week's challenge.  I happen to know that the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design Team has lots of amazing projects waiting for you to ooh and aah over.  So...hop on over there and be inspired!  Then .....go...get creative....and link up your project with us over at FCCB!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Until next time,
