a note for you....

We woke up this morning with lots of snow that had fallen overnight..yuck! I am really ready for spring. Today Korin over at Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge blog has a great sketch for us.

I certainly had spring on my mind when I did this card...I pulled out the C.C.Designs stamps and did some masking so that the fence could go in behind. I coloured her with distress inks...which I just love to play with!

I sure hope you can play along this week. I have a hockey tournament all weekend with my son so not much crafting. Have a wonderful weekend!

WOW, your coloring is breath-taking, it's so soft and looks like porcelain. It's a perfect spring card.

That does look like spring. How I wish it was. Your coloring is really good and I love the fence.

Christine, this definitely SCREAMS spring to me! Love it! I keep meaning to pull out all my CC design stamps! When you say you colour with the distress inks, do you water colour with them? I LOVE the look!

Dena said...

Christine! This is totally adorable! I forget I have this cute Spring set! Love the papers you used and how you masked the images!
Yes, enjoy those hockey games, those times go by so fast!

Very cute! I would love to be out basking in the sun on a nice warm summer grassy patch.

Monique said...

Awwe I love this... I can smell the fresh cut grass... Full of Country charm :)

This card is certainly "Spring-ey" and so, so cute. Your fence is the perfect backdrop. Sorry you got more snow. We've warmed up all of a sudden here, and it's delightful, but I wouldn't mind a bit more of the cooler before it turns warm and stays there. Guess we're never satisfied, are we. I'd happily send you some of this if I knew how. :)

Danielle said...

Sorry I didn't get here sooner to comment Christine! What a stunning and gorgeous card ... your colouring is divine and the image so perfectly spring-like! Love the gingham and polka dot papers - they really complement each other beautifully! Those flowers are too cute! Hope you enjoyed your Family Day today!
Hugs, Danielle
