Daffodil Basket

I think Spring has finally Sprung for good.  The weather here has been so up and  down.  One day its 85 the next its 30.  I decided to make this darling daffodil basket for the Die Cutting Diva's 3d Challenge.  I used a memory box  picket fence die and a  flower die  but I'm not sure where I  got it. I also added a flutter butterfly to the  handle. I like to  cut butterflies from  Velum then color them to give them that soft graceful flutter. Pinspirational Challenges has  a Spring Challenge.  Simon Says Wednesday has a  more than  one  punch or die  challenge.

Lucky Little Bird

You  guessed it!  I found yet another St. Patty's day card I made and did not post.  I had decided the bird  didn't  color too well because my  marker is drying out and was  going to  throw it out.  Well today I decided  maybe it looks like I tried to shade his  feathers.  I used the image at  From the Heart.  I always enjoy using their images.  I also used the sketch at I {Heart} Sketches.  Simon Says Monday has a Layers Challenge.

Have a Beautiful Day

At the rate I am going I will soon run  out of Green scraps.  That would be a very good thing.  Today I used  the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches to complete the challenge at Catch the Bug. Their challenge is  Bingo.  I had to use a Bug A Boo image, washi tape and gem stones.  Crafting By Designs has a Thinking of You challenge.

One More St. Patty's Day Card

Last week  I colored this cute  guy.  I used my glitter gel pens for most of him.  I like the soft shimmer these pens gave his hat and  vest.  I used the  sketch from Sketch Saturday.  Hiding in My Craft Room has a three designer paper challenge.  I actually used  5 but  who is  counting? Di's Digi Designs has a Green Challenge. there are also several  Anything Goes Challenges I want to use this card in.

St. Patty's Jar of shamrocks

I haven't  spent a lot of time in the craft room lately.  Just too many things  going  on in my life to make time  for playing.  Tonight I took a break and made this cute St. Patrick's Day card.  I added glitter to the  word lucky and some of the shamrocks. Hiding in my Craftroom has an Any Holiday  Challenge.  I'm not real sure St. Patricks Day is a Holiday but maybe it should be!  Curtain Call has a Green Challenge.

There are a  bunch of Anything Goes Challenges.
