I’m sort of on a card making roll! It feels so good to be crafting again. No, the house isn’t done- there is still painting to do and pictures to hang, not to mention we are almost at garden season! But I’m going to keep crafting as long as I can!

These two cards are the same layout but the outcome is different because of the colors and design elements used. Both were made using some backgrounds that didn’t work as originally planned so I cut them up! I love when I can recycle something into a new project.

I decided to celebrate Spring, even if it’s still in the 30s!

I don’t do a lot of hand coloring but I did on these birdies. I gave them a gentle wash of color to keep them soft looking. I also watercolored the branch and leaves.

I feel the sentiment is so appropriate for so many times. After all, life is a journey so we need to do our best to enjoy it.

Happy April 1st!

Traditionally, in this household, my husband makes all the holiday meals. Today is Easter and he is out there cooking while I am in here making cards. It’s a good life.

I have made a few different models today. I have been having a clear out of things I no longer want and in doing so I have discovered all the wonderful items I have! So I thought I would start at one end of the stamp shelf and work my way through all the sets.

This first card is just wonderful. I really love the colors in this one. Wouldn’t it be lovely for an anniversary?

Next we have a bright and happy card that could be used in so many situations! Moving home comes immediately to mind but just think how versatile this card can be.

And finally, another card with lovely colors. I tend to make a lot of friendship cards. I think people really like getting a handwritten and handmade card in the mail “just because”.

Today we have another simple and sweet card. I think you could give this to a graduate, someone just starting a new job, someone who just got a promotion – really the options are endless!

All those lovely colors make me feel happy. And that big flower really brings a smile to my face.
