Inspiration Photo at Friendships' Garden

Hello out there! I hope wherever you are, a bit of spring weather may be coming your way this weekend and that you find some time for some fun paper crafting!

Our new challenge at Friendships' Garden this week is based on this great photo and color scheme:

Aren't those fun colors? They definitely make me feel like spring! Our challenge also has a BIRTHDAY themed twist, be sure to check out the Friendships' Garden Challenge blog to see all of the Design Team's fab creations, there are some really wonderful cards! Here is my take on this challenge:

We'd love to see what you can come up so please visit our Challenge Blog and link up your card by midnight EST on Sunday March 4th for your chance to win a gift certificate from our great sponsor, Altered Angel and a chance to be a guest designer for Friendships Garden! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I used this sketch from Card Patterns to help design my card, I really like the rows of boxes, tons of possibilities there!

Thanks for looking!

Quick and Easy Valentines

Just wanted to share these Valentines I made for my kids, I found the ideas on Pinterest and then created my own for my kids to take to the classes today. I thought they turned out pretty cute and the kids were happy with them! (Even Carter, who wanted nothing pink, no hearts, and it not to say "Valentines" on it!)

Thanks for looking!

It's a Love Thing! (And some Goodies for You!)

Well, I'm back from my vacation and it's definitely time I got this post working-- so sorry about those problems, I hope you are all enjoying the Blog Hop anyway!

For our Garden Girl projects this week, it was so fun to work with a digital design from Designs on Cloud 9-- Michelle was so generous in providing us all with this file:

Aren't they adorable? Make sure to check out this and all the great things she has available at her site. I had so much fun with these cute bees, thank you so much to Michelle!

And here is the card I created by printing the digital file, then cutting and piecing this little guy together.

Since you have hopped over to my blog, you can also take a peek at the inside (which I like to keep fairly simple so there is plenty of room to write) and another view of the front:

As part of this blog hop, I have some "love thing" goodies for you! For your chance to win my Valentine themed blog candy (don't worry, there's plenty of stuff that can be used on any old project you choose!) all you need to do is go and become a follower of our Friendship's Garden Challenge Blog and then come back here and leave me a comment that you have done so.
