Easter Bean

Before we know it it will be Easter so I thought I'd try and get a few cards done and hopefully I'll get them sent out in time too!

My card today uses the super sweet Easter Bean from The Greeting Farm! I just wanna hug her and squeeze her!

Think Spring!

I do like winter with the cold and snow but after a certain point I start to long for is that point! It's crazy we have temps one day of 85 and then down to the 30's the next. I'll be happy to have it warmer and to see all the trees and flowers start to spring to life!

My card today uses a digi from The Paper Nest Dolls called Avery with Birdhouse Banner. We are getting several bird feeders and maybe a house or two for our yard so I thought this digi was too much fun!

Good Luck Anya

Isn't it funny how our mind works? One minute you are "on fire" with creativity and then the next minute you think about selling all the crafty supplies because you have no desire to create. Slowly, ever so slowly, the desire to create comes back and you hope that it's around to stay awhile. That's my story over the last few weeks. I see a glimmer of creativity so I'm trying to capture and go with it.

I have the images sitting on my desk that I colored for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge so I thought I'd try to get some of them onto cards. I started with this cutie, Good Luck Anya

I didn't put a sentiment on this card as I thought it could be used as either a St. Patrick's Day card or a Good Luck card and I couldn't decide which it wanted to be right now.

It's a start at getting back on the creativity train--hopefully it will stay! Have a happy day!

Stamps~ The Greeting Farm~ Good Luck Anya, TAC Little Spring, 
Ink~ SU Garden Green, 
Cardstock~ SU Basic Grey, misc white, Copic Xpress-it,

Not for me

The 30 Day Coloring Challenge was so awesome in theory. And I know lots of people do very well with it but I'm going to be a 30 Day Challenge dropout.

I have issues. Lots of issues but I have noticed that each day when I add a colored image to my stack "to get on cards" the more stressed I get. I am a color the image-make the card kinda gal and just having the images colored and not on cards is driving me bonkers. I don't have the time/energy/mojo to do a card a day so I'm just going to let this challenge go and get back to working on what I want, when I want.

Have a great day and I'll be back soon!
