No Joke - April Fool's Day!

This was the view from my house yesterday (April 1) as the April Fool's Nor'easter traveled through here and dumped all this white stuff on our spring hopes.

Today is a better day!  Sun shine and high 40's.  Yay!!!  The snow is melting.....
Have a great weekend!

Floral Birthday Basket

I'm not sure where you live as you read this, but if you live in a cold, snowy winter weather area as I do, I'm sure, like me, you're about ready to see spring.  It has been a long, long winter this year in Maine - lots of snow and frigid weather (much of it below zero).  So, in an attempt to create my own spring, (until the real one gets here) I purchased this stamp set and made a birthday card for someone special!  

Stamp sets - "Spring Basket" and "Basket Blessings" both by Melanie Muenchinger from GKD.  
CS - GKD Pure Luxury White and "Wild Lilac" (awesome brand new color).  DP- Memory Box "Spearmint".
Inks - Memento Tuxedo Black
Misc - Copic markers (sorry, I don't remember what colors I used), paper heart doily, pearls, wrinkled seam binding (from Prairie Bird Boutique), Janome Sew Mini sewing machine, dimensionals.  
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate in Style

I'm having some fun this weekend playing with some new stamps.  The stamp I've used on this card is one I just received and you can get it FREE with a $35.00 order over at StampTV.  The details are  HERE.  

I'm using this card in two challenges this week.  The first one is a color challenge over at StampTV 

Wild Lilac is the newest Gina K Pure Luxury Card Stock and it's a fabulous shade.  It's a fun color combo.

And the second is for the Trina's Wednesday's sketch challenge (SC0323) over at Outlawz  

Card details:  GKD Pure Luxury CS "Wild Lilac", "Sweet Mango" and "White".  DP is from DCWV "Cafe Mediterranean".  Stamp Set:  Celebrate in Style from Gina K Design, CB EF "Big Dots" and "Swiss Dots".  Ink: Memento "Grape Jelly".  Buttons and ribbon from GKD at StampTV.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you all had a great weekend!
