Pheeew....what a busy week! I don't mean to ignore my little blog, but I've had my head down and have been working and creating like crazy. Lots to share with you very soon, but for today, I'm forcing myself to sit and post a bit. Things around my house are looking so fresh and spring-y. I am learning to find the beauty in this old, desert wasteland of mine, ha! My husband's eyes light up with all that surrounds us and I am learning to see the why he loves it so much here. The Indian Paintbrush are popping up everywhere, wildflowers are making their way out of the earth and up towards the sun, even some buds beginning to open on our trees, and I can't forget to mention the baby calves that sprinkle the fields on our drive into town. We try to count them , but there are too many to number. I love all of theses sweet signs of spring and am so inspired by them...something about the freshness, the new life, and the hope that spring brings.
This first card was created for Emma's Paperie with My Mind's Eye as our focus. I LOVE My Mind's Eye. What an inspiring company! It was fun to stock up and create a little something using their products.
You can find a complete supply list and instructions HERE on the Emma's Paperie blog.
Lastly, a fresh and fruity number. I love mixing in the weathered woodgrain patterned paper from My Mind's Eye with soft elements such as a Freckled Fawn doily, Prima flower, and Memrie Mare scrunched seam binding. I love the combination of rough and weathered with gentle, soft accents. The Black Heart Lace Washi Tape is also from Freckled Fawn and I love the punch of boldness it adds. The sentiment and floral cardstock stickers are from the C'est La Vie Melissa Frances collection and I used Papertrery Ink's A Little Argyle stamp set along with the Button Card die to add lots of layers. Definitely a hodge podge of what was scattered on my desk, but I love left-overs! They inspire me.
Have a beauty!
