The Mystery is....Where is Spring?!

Hi all!

I'm back with my card for the current round of Mystery Swappers....a group of happy card makers on Split Coast Stampers website.
The real Mystery around here though is..........GOSH! Where is the Spring weather?! The high today was like 35* and it spit snow! It's almost April and it feels like it is still January. Oh me!

For this Mysterious round of card making, Ms. Mae was our hostess. She sent us an adorable SU! image.

This is what I made:

I made a super simple card (gasp! I know you can't believe that) with her cute image. I wanted it to be the spotlight.

Here's the inside:
I can't wait to see what everyone else did with this image.
Thanks Mae for a great round of Mystery Swappers!

Until next time...

The Dueling Darlings are Celebrating......


March is National Umbrella month.....who knew?! LOL

The Dueling Darlings are a group of ladies I create with on Split Coast Stampers. We have a different hostess each round for the Dazzler team and the Diva team.
This round, Terry is the Dazzler's leader.
She and LJ (Diva's leader for this round) decided to send out kits that included umbrellas. That is such a cute idea! I had fun with this kit, even though I had to color the image 3 times and I'm not happy with the end result. uggggggg! My Spectrum markers didn't like the paper or something, they kept bleeding over the lines of the image. So, I had to color the image with my watercolor pencils. Well, I haven't done that in ages so I royally messed it up. Oh well.

Here's what I made:

I cut the image out after I finished coloring and matted it with some of the paper Terry sent. The flower paper I cut at an angle and then backed that with the pale blue paper.

The image is popped up with pop dots. All of the embellishments I used came in the kit along with the sentiment.

Thanks Terry for a wonderful kit! So sorry I am late in the day getting it posted.

Be sure to check out all the other Darlings creations. You can find their blogs listed in my left sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until next time...
