Springtime

A breath of fresh air throughout the city and children coming outside to play after school each day – must be Spring!

I wanted to celebrate the season with some fun, happy cards.  Springtime means color, new life and joy.  I made this cute ducky card for my sister using some adorable paper from October Afternoon.

I love this paper!  The houndstooth pattern is the backside of the duck print.  I used some Thickers to spell out “Spring”and then topped it off with some Vintage ribbon and flowers.
Then I thought, why stop there?  Any cheerful pattern will make a fun Spring greeting!
I used the same card layout design to make this polka dot piece.  I really enjoy working with monotones, so I used the teal blue for the top of the card, along with the lettering.
This one is available at my Bella Stitchery ArtFire shop and is fully embellished inside as well.
Hope you enjoy the season and take time to enjoy the delights of handmade!

Avast, Ye Scurvy Dogs!

Yar! 
Our weather be good, so we decided to set out on a treasure hunt!
Me mateys and I followed the clues throughout the house…er…island to discover the wooden treasure box buried in the sandbox…er…exotic sand dunes.
Me first mate, Jackson and his swash-buckling cousins had so much fun with the adventure. 
The candy and gold chocolate bounty were enough to keep ’em happy until they sailed off to bed that night.

Springtime in the Kitchen

Please tell me that I am not the only person that looks forward to each and every season or holiday. In August, I start mentally preparing the Christmas decoration layout in our home. Now, I’m dreaming of SPRING! Ahhhhh, the sunny days, flowers and baby birds.
I’ve started creating with Spring themed goodies this week and am having so much fun with them!
