Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    Spreading a Little Warm Weather Cheer

    Our beautiful warm weather inspired me today, along with the simple little Freshly Made Sketch, of course, so I just knew I had to incorporate a fun little flower somewhere on my card. While the colors are a bit fallish, I think the bright flower gives this card enough whimsy to wish someone special a happy spring or summer day. I used The Green Stack from DCWV to create this card; and to tell you the truth, I was very glad to be able to use a few pages out of this paper pad because I’ve owned it for a very long time and really haven’t used it much (for whatever reason).…

    Colorful Marine Critters for OWH

    Our Daily Bread Designs sponsors a challenge through Operation Write Home each month and February is all about designing with animals. Yeah!! I’m so excited, because this was the perfect excuse to use my new Recollections marine animal stamps that are so absolutely cute! I had a great time creating these little critter cards and have several more I want to make. I used basic papers and simple accents, and pulled out my markers to make things colorful. I also added simple messages and splashes of Stickles to add a bit of sparkle. Click on images to enlarge.
