Spring Thinkin'

I sat in my (clean) craft room this weekend, watching the rain drip off the trees...I wanted to make more valentine's day cards, but I have plenty of those, so I reached for some spring inspiration.

Cold Heart

Brrrrr! It is so cold! I can't believe it, but I am soo looking forward to the rain, because waking up to 23 degree mornings is just not working for me! Lots of pictures on this post...

I was able to clean up my craft room over the weekend and then I crafted up two cute little cards. 

outside lighting
 This first one is made with a heavy foil-type cardstock.

inside lighting
 I used a decorative paper ribbon and flower, with a gray pearl accent.

This second card features a flocked red paper, with a reverse pattern on the second layer. 
this is standard 4.25 x 5.5
The stamped  Heart is double stamped and the stamped "ribbon" image is cut out and mounted.

I added some cute red gems, too.

Inside the polka-dot washi tape starts and continues to the front of the card. 

gray area is for writing your little love notes

Hope you're staying warm!

LOVE-ly little card

Happy New Year! I hope it was a terrific new year for you! I am so happy to see 2013....I'm looking forward to meeting my goals and just being happy!

During our winter break (and I use "break" very loosely. I didn't get a single "break"...between stomach bugs, holidays and colds) I was able to make two didn't quite turn out the way I like. I think I better post that one, too. I'll have to take a picture. Anyway, I was able to make one nice card.

this is 5 x 7
I also have a HUMONGOUS mess in my craft room to clean, purge and organize. I think I'll tackle that after I eat these bon-bons and finish watching my stories.........
