Spring is on it's way. Today is one of the colder days this week but earlier it was in the 50's and low 60's. Woo hoo! I am so ready for the nicer weather. Soon I can get into my garden. I love watching my perenials come. I really think nature is God's Artistic Masterpiece! Can you find anything more beautiful than the landscape around you. Today I have so much to do that I am running around in circles trying to think of what to do first, so I decided to do my post first.


Yesterday I saw the WT210 Challenge- "Stuck to you, Again" and knew I had to play. I don't normally use stickers so it was a good challenge to help me think outside of the box. I made two cards for this challenge one more inspirational and another that is more fun or cutesy. The first card I made is using the SU By the Sea set (retired). I used some Jolee sticker's to create an ocean scene. The yummy dp is from Best Creations and it fit so perfectly with my theme. That paper I hoarded from a trip I took to Lancaster, PA last spring so I thought it was about time I used it. The image is cut out popped up on dimensionals directly on the dp.
The second card I made uses the newest release from Our Daily Bread Designs called "Scripture Collection 2". I used my friend Angie's favorite verse. Kelley took a favorite verse from each of the dt members and made into a stamp for the One Year Anniversary of ODBD. It is such a great collection and all of these verses can be found in the stampsets Scripture Collection 1 and 2!!! The colors I chose for this card were inspired by the flower stickers I used from EK Success. I didn't want to use just black and white so I looked through my stash of DP and came up with this yummydp with black flocking from Best Creations Inc. It is so textured and beautiful. I used Sketch Challenge 217 for my layout. I love these green pearls that are now offered at Our Daily Bread Designs. They offer blue, pink, green, black and white pearls now! The butterfly behind the verse is a stamp from SU's Priceless set. Believe it or not, that rose button on the ribbon, I found at Walmart!
I hope you enjoyed today's post! Thanks for visiting my blogs and for any comments left. Have a blessed day!

WOW and WOW!!! The seaside one is just gorgeous with the paper and starfish and glitter that reminds you of sand! I love the second one - what a fabulous layout and colours. Love all the flowers....and that verse is my Mum's favourite, so it really made me smile. :)

Wow Chris! These are both beautiful! I really, really love the beach scene!

Help you organize your ribbon you say? Honey, I did NOT roll ALL of that myself!! I conned my kid into helping me! A movie on TV, rolls of ribbon, a slew of bobbins and a bribe. I'd still be working on the first case otherwise.

I just love that butterfly stamped "in" the scripture verse, such a really great idea.
