It is coming!


The good weather has come and visited us and brought so much sunshine and warmth that we were all so happy and excited. For February this is very unusual and greatly appreicated.

Sunshine, warmth, birds chirping, and some greenery dictated our weekend and we made sure to spend time outdoors getting some of that Vitamin D into our system. Fabulous! But I also spent time indoors, in my craft room, doing some cards and putting some nature in my cards. Today's card is for Mojo Monday 485 and it has a bit of nature that we enjoyed so much the past few days. Dragonfly Dreams set and framelit gave the images along with retired Bountiful BordersBanners framelit made easy to cut the banner and the Island Indigo Baker's Twine added the finish touch. A sunny and happy card indeed.

Thank you for visiting today. Be well

Swirly and Ribbons.

DSC#218


Hello my dear friends and readers. I am so glad to be able to find a bit of time to craft, but now that we had some beautiful days, we have spend a bit of time outside enjoying the sun and the very mild temperatures. Yesterday, I was too excited and no longer able to wait. I put my seeds on potting soil. I am hoping that the season will continue mild and the spring will be here soon. I do not plan, of course, on transplanting my seedling too soon.

This card is prepared for the DSC 218, and ribbons are a favorite of mine - sure you know that - and since we have good weather, I wanted color, lots of it. I also have needs for several Get Well cards so I made this a Thinking of you/Get Well card. I think it will bring a bit of cheer. I used the Swirly Bird bundle for the flowers and leaves and I layered the flowers for a bit of 3D. Sentiment, from the Rose Wonder, was placed on a Layering Circles, which is such delicate details for a layer. Then, the ribbon, oh so pretty and soft. I love this ribbon and the bow is always perfect. I add texture from the Fancy Fan TIEF on the Crumb Cake layer and love all those textures together.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you will visit again. Be well

Life is beautiful Thankful.

http://dostamping.typepad.com/.a/6a00e54f9444b9883301bb09674b0e970d-pi

Each day, as I wake up and read during my breakfast, I get more and more mesmerized as how beautiful life truly is. The miracles that comes forth with each dawn, the small surprises that the little ones bring, and the beauty all around us.



As the beauty of daily life, having art around us just enhance the experience. The inspiration from Dostamper Stars 217 jumped on me and the only set that I could think of was the Thankful Life. This is a beautiful stamp set and the fact that I can effortlessly add colors to the flowers in layers make me that much happier. I used the retired Label Collection for framing the image and add a touch of Early Espresso ribbon with a bow just for breaking the color and to utilize the hint of brown from the inspiration picture. Now, the dots on the vase was just for fun and they were heat embossed in white. The bigger Delightful Dijon flowers have a pearl on them which makes them so nice and delicate. A card that is sure to bring a comfort and smile to a friend or loved one.

Thank you for visiting today. I look forward to your next visit. Be well

Miriam

Birthday special!



Winter made its way back to us, but we are ready to ward it off with a call to Spring.

A clean and simple card for the PP329 that makes a call for Spring to come at once. On this one I used the now retired Going Places dsp stack. I have been totally in love with the Oh So Succulent stamp set and its matching Succulent framelit. The flowers are so pretty and when stacked they sure us. I stamped some on the back for the color, but I did not want too much of it. Sentiment from the same set, a bit of Rhinestones and the candy dots on the corner to bring it to a close.

I hope you will be inspired to make something beautiful too. Thank you for your visit. Be well
