If it isn't going to snow...

...i'd rather it be Spring. So far this year we've had only a couple dustings and some flurries. Bah, i say! i know some of you reading have been bombarded by snow, but here we're really lacking.

The crummy weather hasn't hindered my creative spirit, though - i've been playing in my craft room a lot recently, not only making cards, but also working in my art journal. i hope to show some snippets from that soon, but for now it's mostly a work in progress. So more cards...

Trying out different color combos here. This card is much cutesier than what i normally do, but it was fun. And i love images of trees. i got this stamp set at Michael's for $6! Can't beat that!

Ingredients: CS - Colorbok, stash; PP - K & Company; stamps - Colorbok Friendly Forest, Studio G (letters); ink - Colorbox Chalk, Versamagic; ribbon - Offray, A.C. Moore; buttons - stash; brads - MM; pop-dots.

i love bird images, too...could you tell? And these colors are my comfort zone. i always wish people a double "Happy Birthday".

Ingredients: CS - stash, Bazzill; PP - We R Memory Keepers; stamps - Inkadinkado Gem Stone Birds, Studio G (border), PTI Paper Tray; ink - Versamark, Colorbox Chalk, Pallette Hybrid; ribbon - Bobbin Ribbon; chalk; white gel pen; pop-dots.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a happy day!


  1. You can HAVE our snow! Blech.
    I am impressed with the color combo on the deer card Jessica! It's awesome. Did you layer two ribbons? I love how that looks, especially with the buttons. And your owl card is cool. I like how his head and body are paper pieced in different colors. And ric rac too! I LOVE ric've inspired me to get out my stash and use it again!

    Hey, not sure what kind of music you are into, but check out the Weepies. (
    There is a small blue blob on the bottom of the screen. hit play to listen to some samples. I have that album and am making some cds for friends. I will send you one if you like them.

  2. Thanks, Dana! i did layer two ribbons on the first card.
    i'll have to check out the Weepies. My dial-up often prevents me from being able to listen to music online, so i might have to wait until i go to my mom's.
