Thinking spring



Yes, this post is dedicated to the thought of Spring

We are so weary of the snow and cold here. Plowing the driveway, shoveling the walkway, keeping the heat turned up, putting on multiple layers just to walk outside. UGH. I've had enough!

 I made this card using PTI's Tags for Spring, Vintage Picnic Sentiments, All Booked up, and BB: Text Style II. I also used my new MFT die, Dainty Lace Border.

Wouldn't it be lovely to be going on a picnic with the fresh spring air breezes, birds chirping, and warm sunshine on your face? Ahhhhh, a girl can dream, right? *sigh*

Until next time,
*mwah*

Well, come on over for lentil soup poolside with me! The water's too cold for swimming but the air is sunny and warm. Looks like you've been cozy in your craft room, though - I love this fun & funky card!

And a recommendation from you & Sue Ann? Say no more. Super Baby Food it is. For the last kiddo I used Annabel Karmel's Healthy Baby Meal Planner which got me using parsnips and rutabaga :)

Christina said...

Ooh, Dana this is fabulous! The layering is just perfect! I love the distressed edges and the way you stamped the text on the Distressed Dots. So jealous of you and that dainty lace border, too! That's on my wish list, but I was hoping the rolled rose die would be back in stock first!

Sue Ann said...

OH MY LORD GIRL ...... the colors, the texture, the edges, the embossing folder, and the edge punch you used ....... THIS IS FANTASTIC!!! I am really digging these colors girly!!!
