Garden Green & Wild Wasabi

garden green 001Hope you enjoyed visiting Joni’s blog – I’m sure she had fun with these greens!  I had fun playing with MDS – I CASEd the idea for the shamrocks  from Creative Mary on SCS.  I don’t have these Sale-a-bration stamp sets, but I do have them on MDS – I opted for the disc instead of stamps – that way I got everything, and it doesn’t really retire!  AND you can change the sizes – a bonus for sure.  To make the flower into a shamrock I painted with white on top of the two petals I didn’t want to show – I did the same thing to make the stems – just painted on top of the leaves – It’s just a whimsical “top of the morning” card.  I’m sure you’ll be hoppin’  like a leprechaun to get over to Sandy’s blog – even though St. Patty’s Day has come and gone – still gotta love the green.  Recipe: Garden Green & Wild Wasabi CS, markers, retired GG ribbon, Framed Tulips EF, rhinestones, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Itty Bitties (Spring Catalog), Madison Ave & Bloomin Marvelous (SAB) disc on MDS.

More Mustard & So Saffron

more mustard march 001It was easy to be inspired to used these colors.  I just got back from a wonderful visit with my Mom in Chestertown, Md and the daffodils there were already popping open.  I’ll post a picture of my visit at the end of this entry.  If you hopped over from Joni’s I’m sure you were impressed with what she posted today.  I’m still busy working on my National Teacher Board certification, so I’ll keep this brief.  Hop on over to my dear friend Sandy’s site at Ice Mountain Designs and see what little treat she has designed.  For this card I used Field Flowers, retired ribbon, punches, Fancy Fan & Needlepoint Border EF’s and the Delicate Details Lace Tape from the Spring Catalog.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.  I hope by next week I will have adjusted to the time change!

Weather Blog Hop

20130306_114804If you arrived from Carol’s blog (she lives in Schellsburg, PA ) I’m not sure what she got in the way of weather – I’ll have to jump over there myself!  On our chat this morning (at Butternut Sage Designs) we decided to post pictures of our yards after Winter Storm Saturn arrived.  For some of us it was very disappointing (like nothing) – but here in Winchester, VA we got about 10 inches of snow.  Most of that has melted this afternoon, but I really enjoyed having a “Snow-Day” – some of us teachers really value them – others think they just add to days in June.  I am a snow bunny, so I love them!  I left my little snowmen lights out hoping they would get the company they so deserve, and it finally worked – don’t they look right at home with the snow? (if you click on the picture to enlarge it you can see their smiling faces).  Now hop on over to Marilyn’s blog (she lives in Tewksbury MA )  she may still be waiting to see what this storm will bring, if anything!  Below is one more pic to show:20130306_114746
