Our spring garden will be blooming soon. The tulips are getting taller and hopefully the deer will let them alone.
I was with my grandsons after school today. It was an easy laid back day. I just had to pick up Aidin after school. He had play practice but no homework. Ethan had a basketball game but my son came home in time to take him.
I stayed until 6:15 and then headed back to my side of town. We have bible study on Tuesday evening at church so I went up there.
That was a little of my day and now onto my card. I made this one for the color challenge #366 on Splitcoaststampers.
I am the hostess this week and I chose the color trio of daffodil delight, pool party and poppy parade. These nice, bright colors definitely said spring to me.
I decided to use the field flowers set from Stampin-Up. I stamped the flowers in poppy parade ink and cut them out. I popped the flowers up for dimension and then stamped the stems in pool party ink.
Stampin-Up’s attic boutique designer paper is my background layer and this pattern covers all 3 of the challenge colors.
I used a Spellbinders label 16 and cut some daffodil delight cardstock and more of the attic boutique paper also in daffodil delight.
The Easter Joy sentiment is 2 different stamps from Marks Finest Papers "blessings" set.
To finish my card I used some pool party seam binding and added a dew drop in the center of my bow and a couple on my flower stem.
The layout is one that I saw on Sandy MacGiver’s blog. It is a MojoMonday sketch from last year.
That’s my card for today. It's late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
