Dies R Us Think Spring

Time for a new challenge at DIES R US. Are you ready to Think Spring? With the record snows in some areas I know many of you are ready for the first sign of spring. In California, the almond trees fill out with soft pink blossoms in February.  Since we have many almond orchards surrounding us, I am looking forward to the day they begin to flower.  .

Last fall I made a similar card using fall colors and liked it so I thought I would make another one with a spring theme. I sponged a sun then covered it with a mask so I could sponge a blue sky. I layered the bench grass and tree and then framed the scene. A couple kitties and  my scene was done. 

The team has some fabulous inspiration for you so go take a look Dies R US  and then link up your spring creations.

New Mood Board and New Challenge over at Double D Challenge Blog and as usual we have a wonderful mood board. I liked the soft pastel colors mixed with white so I used that for my inspiration.                    


    I love it when I see a mood board that allows me to use something I have not used for awhile.   I pulled out My Favorite Things Chevron Cover Plate for this challenge. I cut it four times so I would have a variety of colors and patterns.

My fabulous PTI papers were perfect for this design.    I had lavender moon, spring rain, and harvest gold paper packs. I enjoy these papers so much that I had several others on my wish list so can you imagine my happy dance when they put them on sale for their anniversary (marked down from $12 to $ 1). I got every color on my wish list.  since I cut it four times I saved the parts I did not use so I can make three more cards. I used PTI Wet Paint 2 for the sentiment and added one of my homemade flowers and some greenery. This pattern would make a cute baby card.

Out team is always so impressed with your entries in the challenges. There are so many talented designers and we are glad the mood boards inspire you. Here is the prize for this challenge.

 I can't wait to see what you all come up with. Visit the  Double D Challenge Blog  to see details and find more inspiration from the team.
