Is it Spring yet?

A lot of us are still looking for Spring. The date says it spring, but the weather, well, the weather isn't cooperating in some places. I think Faith over at from the Heart Stamps is trying to get spring to come and stay a while. The Free Stamp of the Month is Spring Medley.

This is also my card for the SSSD COTM swap. The colors for the swap are Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo. I also added the green to my card, because to me, flower stems are green.

Here's hoping that Spring gets every where she's suppose to be before Summer arrives. 

Thanks for coming by, Take Care and drive safe.

Pinterest Inspriation

Your Scrapbook Place blog is having its first challenge of 2014. Its an interesting challenge. What you need to do to enter the challenge is peruse Pinterest. Sounds like fun doesn't it. Only the challenge doesn't end there. You need to take inspiration from there. Make a card, scrapbook page, or other crafty project that Pinterest inspired you to make. Tell us why you chose that piece of inspiration. You can find all the rules and some examples here.

As for me, I only go to pinterest when I'm looking for something specific. I have looked for punch art items. I joined some Punch art swaps and needed to find food, animals, plants, people, etc. Later on this month I will need to find a treat box I can make; Pinterest, here I come.

But for now, here are a few punch art items I have made in the past, getting the inspiration from Pinterest.

Here are a few punch art items that I have swapped. That little orange cat was not a Pinterest find, it was an SU find. But he is so cute, I had to put him in here. The angel and little man were for a "people" swap, the two cats and angry bird for an animal swap and the donut and chocolate chip cookie

Below is a birthday card I made using a caterpillar  I found on Pinterest. I think she is so cute. Had a bit of trouble with his face, her mouth isn't quite as smiley as I would like, but ya only get one chance.

I belong to a birthday club and this card is going to our April birthday girl. I hope she likes it.

Ingredients: SU Owl Builder, Bird Builder, Create a Cupcake, Word Window and Modern Label punches. Yellow paper and cupcake stripes is from the Watercolor Designer Series. Sentiment is from SU Big Wish stamp set. The circles are from various punch sizes, and SU embossing folder. Everything else if from stash. There you have it, my first entry into a Your Scrapbook Place a challenge.
You too can enter, just go here.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care and drive safe
