Spring over to 4 Crafty Chicks

Hello friends, I can't believe how much I wanted Spring this year.  Such a long and cold/snowy winter.
So today Lori at 4 Crafty Chicks is challenging us to make something for Spring! I made this card for my parents for St. Patrick's day last Monday.  I had fun coloring and blinging it up some.  I also now realized that the word "Bling" is a new word for my Mom, she didn't know what it meant when I said I added the bling to it.  So now Mom likes this word.  She makes me smile.
I have so many stamps and embellishments for spring, but thought this clean and simple for me worked alright. Please go over and check out what all the chicks are making for spring, I would like to thank Kallan for being on our blog this month as a guest designer, it was a joy creating with you.  Till next time, happy crafting!
Supplies I used: SU-Cardstock, Embossing folder, Bling, Ribbon, Pearls, 3D Foam tape, Computer for sentiment, Copic Markers.

I then matted the sentiment and used foam tape to pop it up.  I added three buttons at the bottom.
Our other sponsor today is Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet

Back It Up!

Hello Friends, welcome back to my blog.  There is some fun stuff happening over at Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog.  Our Challenge is pretty cool.  Back It Up!  That's right, lets see you make your own background paper, no pattern paper or some call it designer paper.
The sponsors today at LTS are Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Eureka.
I am using from Eureka the lovely Digi Tea Cup!  
I thought it was pretty.  I printed the cup on white cardstock and I faded the printing, so you can see it a wee bit.  Then printed it off so I could color it, and 3D it up on my card.  I liked how it turned out. 
I do hope you get into your craft room today and play around, make your own background paper, I am sure you will have as much fun as I did creating.  Please pop on over to Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog and share the love with our amazing team and play along.  Till next happy crafting!
Supplies: Stamp-Eureka-Digi Tea Cup, flowers, Pearl Gems, Die Cut Leaf, Embossing Folder, Copic Markers, Ribbon, Leaf Punch, Foam 3D dots, glue dots, black ink for inking edges.
