Seasons Change!

Have you heard?  It is officially Spring!  Here in Illinois it is probably wise not to take that too much for granted, as we have had absolutely dillies of snowstorms well into April. But for now, the days are getting warmer, the sun has been shining and my dear hubby has been in the mood to work at picking up the fallen branches in the yard.

So here I was with this "Seasons Change" challenge.  Not really sure what to do, I decided to create a card with spring flowers. I love these papers from the So Much Happy paper packet.  The vase with flowers is actually a sticker in the Complements pack.  I rubbed the back with a anti static pouch to remove the stickiness and then bumped it with Thin 3-D Tape.  The sentiment stamp is retired, but the card will be perfect with a sentiment of your choice.  A few Bitty Sparkles on the flower centers finished the card off.

By the Numbers!

This week, Heart 2 Heart is challenging us to use numbers in our project. You can accomplish this by using patterned paper with numbers or stamping your numbers. You can use stickers or chipboard embellishments, or cut your own numbers using dies or an electronic cutting machine.

Design credit to SQSC 15

To create my numbers, I used the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I cut 3 of each number from White Daisy and 1 from the patterned paper.  I then glued the layers together to create a dimensional emellishment that coordinates perfectly with my paper choices.  This can be seen in the photo below.

All the products used are from CTMH, most from the current Seasonal Expressions 1.  For questions about this card or how to order product, feel free to contact me or click here to visit my website. For more number inspiration, please visit  Heart 2 Heart Challenges I have also submitted this to the Color my Heart Color Dare Challenge.  For this challenge, I have used all the colors shown.

Til next time,
