Ewe are so Special

Good morning everyone,

I love Monday's now that I don't have to go to work!!  I hope that you have been able to get outside and enjoy this fabulous weather.  Now that I am retired it is a challenge to keep active.  I could spend all my time making cards and scrapbooking.  Gotta spend more time in the yard and walking.  Saturday's lunch was out of this world.  Sorry for those of you who missed it but the rest of us enjoyed the crafts and the CHOCOLATE.  Can you tell that I live to eat.  I love the taste, the texture, the smell of food.  I'm in my glory when someone puts a brownie sundae in front of me. 

Today's card is another spring inspired design.  The adorable lamb is adapted from a design created by Kim Score.  Be sure to check out her website for details on how you can get instructions on how to make this lamb and several other spring designs.  You can find her at

Enjoy - I had so much fun making this one.

YIPEE!! It's Almost Here.....................

Spring that is.  Yesterday afternoon my husband and I sat out on our porch enjoying the beautiful sunny, warm weather.  The winter seems so long, practically endless, so Spring just lifts my soul. My hyacinth are up and tulips, daffodils, and crocus are poking their heads above the soil.  It makes me just jump for joy.  So,  I made a Happy Spring card to celebrate the season.  Hope you enjoy. 

Materials used for this card:
Stamp: Springtime D1415
Ink:  Pear, Dutch Blue, Sunny Yellow
Paper:  Pear, Sunny Yellow, White
pop dots, liquid glass

I want to share an idea for a gift.  I made a single page, mounted it, framed it and I am sure you will agree - this makes a great present.  I purchased a 12x12 artist canvas at Michaels store, added a ribbon frame around the outside and Wow.  This one is about my grandmother who loved kitties and sewing and is for a cousin who also loved her.
