~ spring shower ~

Hello Nice People!!

(making a visit here automatically puts you in the nice-people category) ;o) 


Are you having spring where you are? it's getting from summer-y to summer-est here where I am. and that means HOT. not nice at all.

So, I have need of fresh air sometimes... here it is in the form of spring cards. Sweet, light colors, like ice-cream or candy.  


That big cabbage rose came from Frog Feather's etsy store, stirred up with a little tea-dye... (if you shop at Frog Feathers, let Christi know via convo that I sent you there and she'll give you a 15% discount)


We'd better prepare ahead of time for Mother's Day... cuz Moms are special! (nest&egg from CraftZany)

Another pretty cabbage rose.. non-tea-dyed this time. Trim the middle with a twist of jute loop fringe and a little rose, and you're good to go... 

One more for Moms... 

 Buttons, posies, fairy wings and more...

And I know there's way too many pictures in this post, but I have one more card... just one more.

 I found this cute grapevine wreath on etsy... you might like to look them up in other stores as the one I purchased from doesn't have anymore. That cute button and lace trim are from my friend Patty... I got a gift package from her today and after opening it up I used it right away :o) THANK YOU Patty!!!

Stamps today were from BasicGrey and PaperTrey Ink... scrunchy ribbons from MemrieMare ... with a whole lot of other goodies.

Thank you for being nice today :o)

I ~heart~ you all.......
