So many times I see cards that inspire me and make me want to make something similar, the great thing is that sometimes I see several different versions of ‘that card’ and it just makes me want to make it even more. This card is based on at least four other cards of a similar style. I think it is the clean and simple design that really speaks to me.

This was a card that came about a bit by surprise. I have a ton of different wreath digital stamps and flower stamps that I can make a wreath out of. I was just not having any luck finding the one that worked right on this card. I started working on cutting apart a sheet of paper that had small sentiment squares on it and realized how perfect these two images were.

Color challenges are probably the most daunting for me.  I think it has to do with the fact that I already know that there is such a big variance in how color can be perceived.  Computer monitors are not all set the same, my color vision is ok but always suspect, even when I buy packages of cardstock I notice the same color will vary slightly from one pack to the next sometimes, and honestly not everyone agrees on what color mauve is anyway. read more

It’s kind of funny to me, every year I get into making Easter cards and all of a sudden I have this thought “I don’t really like Easter”. Why then do I get so into making Easter cards? My theory is that it has to do with where we live more than anything. This house used to be my husband’s grandmothers, and she always had an Easter celebration. The funny thing is that there was always an egg hunt but all of the eggs never were found. Since we have moved in we have a small collection of eggs we have found.

I think it worked! My card wished for sunshine and there was actual sunshine coming through my window today! I would be even more excited if I didn’t know the next week’s forecast is for rain almost every day. At least it seems to be getting a little bit warmer around here.
