Note: I love you!

Happy Saturday friends!!

What a week - between sick kids and snow days, I never thought I'd see Saturday.  And, not only is it Saturday, but the sun is shining in Jersey and the birds are singing!!!  Woot!

Some Odd Girl is having a week long celebration on their Facebook page filled with lots of inspiration and challenges.  Each day of the week has a different challenge which you can enter for some fabby prizes!  If you love SOG as much as I do, you seriously need to hop on over to FB and check it out --only one day left to get in those minute makes!

So Monday's challenge was Punches and this is what I came up with using the current Deconstructed Sketch as inspiration:

Isn't she just precious-ness?  Love Letter Kaylee and her matching sentiment were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and Copics.  I used some textured grey cardstock from Wassau and all the rest of the papers, including the dp, is from Recollections.  I used my Fiskars punch for the side edging.  The heart was cut out using my Cricut Expression, and then I took a Sharpie Poster Paint pen to create some faux stitching around it.  The flower and self-adhesive pearls were laying in my stash for quite awhile.

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Pining for Spring

With snow still on the ground from the storm we just had, the sun is shining and temps are near 45 today in Jersey.  Crazy weird, but can someone say Woot!!!  I'm seriously pining for all that is, sunshine, WARMTH...

Today I have a card to share that I made using the ever adorable image from Elisabeth Bell.  I'm so jealous that she's laying amongst the flowers; daydreaming and thinking of someone special ;)  I'd much rather be doing that instead of laundry, for sure!

She was brought to life with Copics and given a little texture using Liquid Pearls in Pink.  I used kraft cardstock from Recollections and designer papers from the adorable Heidi Grace collection called Sunshowers.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions and is inked in Momento Rich Cocoa.  I've used some Twinery flax twine and a crocheted flower from Recollections.  Also, I edged the papers using a Fiskars border punch and adhered some Queen & Co. pearls in the corner. 

Hoping where you are is sprouting tiny signs of spring!!
