Winter Blues

Hi everyone! Who's tired of Winter, snow, and cold weather??? ME!!! I'm ready to move on to Springy and bright projects! My duck has already started laying eggs and guess what!!! They're pastel green! I knew chickens could lay colored eggs, but I had no idea ducks could. They are beautiful and looked like Easter Eggs! Will definitely be posting a picture of one!

I bought the latest Noel Mignon kit and I'm in love with it! It is full of the trendiest papers, embellishments, and even pink Tim Holtz crackle paint! I want to share a few cards I made with the new kit.





I'm really addicted to the shabby vintage look at the moment.

I also did a second card for this week's DCRU Challenge - no patterned paper:



I used Prism Cardstock. Then I took a smaller piece of light blue cardstock and used a script rub-on from 7 Gypsies to add text. I then sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. My bird image is from a vintage magazine from Etsy. I touched up the picture with Copics and colored the tips of my Prima flower with the same color. For the bottom I layered lace and added a button that I glittered with glitter glue. I used a Melissa Frances Rub-On.

Now a few fun links:

You have to check out my friend Annette's ETSY Store . She has the most beautiful Spring creations! They are just stunning.

I was spotlighted at Sketch Girl and Sharing Memories Scrapbooking last week! How fun! My 15 minutes of fame : )

Enjoy!!!
