Mother nature is pointing and laughing at me....

March 21, 2008

It is SNOWING! Our backyard is covered in snow that is not melting!! Seriously...mother nature is mocking me right now...I was so ready for some spring weather!! Sigh...oh well, this means we will have a gorgeous summer, right?

Well, I got a layout and two cards done last night! In my last post I said I had found the first kit that I ever wanted to purchase. I have been watching this kit for the past 5 months to see if it was for me or not. I love bright colors, patterns, and cutesy items when it comes to crafting- and I think I found what I was looking for in a kit! So, I ordered my first one in March. The name of the kit is My Sweet Spuds, and the kits are really cute and fun! Here are some projects that I did with the kit so far: Layout Journaling:
"You see this precious little cocker sleeping soundly? She looks so sweet and peaceful, doesn’t she? I dare you to wake her up…
Truthfully, she IS super sweet and cute…but has a bit of an attitude when she wants her way. And the bark…oh man, the bark. It can get the best of you some days. But, we love her to pieces and we are so glad she is our little Sadie girl, even when she is having an obnoxious moment."

And a couple of cards...aren't those stickers on the second card darling!?

I did a sneak peek of this card earlier in the week. It is my card for this week's sketch at the CPS Sketch Blog. Be sure to check it out...lots of great spring themed cards this week!
Well, that is about it for me today. Just staying warm in our lovely wintry spring weather we have going on!
