Hello Sunshine!

Happy Spring all! The sun certainly was shining yesterday and I hope it does today as well. I'm ready for winter to pack up for the season. The Yoshino cherry, red bud, and cherokee princess trees are just about ready to pop.  I planted them last summer so hopefully they survived the winter okay. The past week was spring break for the little one and she spent about 7 of the 10 days sick with a fever. She is finally feeling back to normal.

I have another adorable By LORi Designs image for you today. When I saw the yellow and white background designer paper from My Mind's Eye, I knew it had to be paired with this cutie. I colored the image with copics. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I used Retro Sketches #57 for the layout.

I hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by. Please visit the rest of the DT listed in my sidebar for some fresh spring inspiration.

Spring Smiles

Happy Spring All! Well spring has officially sprung here by the abundance of daffodils that are in bloom. Of course winter isn't ready to give up yet. I woke up to a blanket of snow on the ground yesterday morning. March is certainly a crazy weather month.

My card today uses an adorable By LORi Designs image called Sugar Sticks Derby Girl. The paper is from My Mind's Eye. The burlapish ribbon is from Stampin' Up. I colored the image with copics and used Deconstructed Sketch 94 for the layout inspiration. Make sure you visit the rest of the DT listed in my sidebar for some more cuteness inspiration.

Remember when I mentioned working on a quilt for the hubby's college friend? I finally took a picture of it. If you look closely, you can see koi swimming in water for the quilt pattern. That part was given to someone with a long arm machine. After three years in the making, it is finally done.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Snap!

Happy Tuesday all! It is time for another look at the adorable By LORi Designs spring release. When I saw this paper pack I knew I had to use it for this sweet image. I'll have to update you with the name of the paper pack tomorrow. After I loaded my picture I noticed I forgot to added the blush to the cheeks. I will also do that tomorrow as well, but alas it is late tonight. I colored the image with copics and as you can see I let the papers do the talking this time and didn't add any additional embellishments.

Please visit the rest of the DT listed in my sidebar for some more jumping into spring goodness. Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week.

Thank You Friend

Happy Tuesday all! I was hoping to get a bunch of chores and spring cleaning done over the weekend, but was only able to finish about 1/4 of what I wanted.  I did pick up my quilt. Once I have the binding on, I will share a picture. For a while one of my bottom molar teeth that has a crown on it would get a zinger feeling when eating at times. Over the weekend it felt as if my crown was being popped on and off when I ate, so on Sunday while I was enjoying a sticky girl scout samoa cookie that popping feeling was very strong so I tried tugging on my crown slightly with my fingers and felt a slide. Of course I quickly slid it back into place. Fortunately I was able to get in to the dentist to get it fixed on Monday. My mouth feels so much better now. I had chipped my tooth eating a pretzel when I was pregnant with my daughter 6 years ago. I hope I never have to have another crown.

For my card, I use another sweet image from By LORi Designs. I colored the image with copics and kept the layout pretty simple. I think this would be a great card for one of those handy-man friends that come to help with home repairs or to keep your hubby from misuse of power tools. LOL. I also some black washi tape for some contrast and pop. Maybe this weekend will be more productive and include changing out some copic nibs.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a great week and please stop by the rest of the DT listed in my sidebar for more Spring time inspiration.
