Spring is in the air!

Hi everyone & happy Monday!

It is starting to feel a little like spring in London and it makes such a difference – it is lighter later, warmer, the sun is trying to sneak out every once in awhile – its so nice! It really does make everything seem better – I do looove spring.

As it starting to feel like spring, I have definitely been drawn towards my cheery patterned paper and sweet floral stamps. When I saw the beautiful color palette over at The Play Date Cafe I knew I wanted to play along. Here is my CAS creation:

Here is the color inspiration photo:

Delightful Doilies are sooo delightful!!

Its been a super busy weekend and we still don’t have a computer at home. Luckily my husband brought his computer home from work so I have a chance to do a quick blog post.

I have really enjoyed the week of honouring over at Joy Taylor’s blog and she has posted a challenge for her readers to do the same. There are so many people I get inspiration from, but I really love Dawn McVey’s work and chose a card from the Love Birds release in December. I decided to do some Mother’s Day cards and did a lot of variations on color. Here are my creations:

Sorry for the dark photos – couldn’t get any good pictures of these with good natural light. The first card uses the new Papertrey Ink color, Royal Velvet – it looks very blue here, but it is a beautiful, vibrant purple and I can’t get enough of yellow & purple at the moment. In all these cards I have used the color that is 1 shade lighter for the layer on Mat Stack 3 – it is hard to see in the picture, but very nice in real life!
Here is Dawn’s card that I used as inpsiration:
Thanks to Dawn for being so easy to ‘honor’ and thanks to Joy for this wonderful challenge!
