Just a note . . .


     Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  It's a bit soggy here again,
It's Monday so it's time for a new challenge at There She Goes.  Our hostess with the mostest this week is Tangii and she wants to see "April Showers Bring May Flowers" themed cards.  So water or flowers, take your pick or use both.  I've used one of the What's Up Buttercup set images and sentiments.
     Don't ask me where this design came from.  It started out as a simple kitty corner CAS card and some how I worked a chipboard postage stamp frame and some whatchamacallits in the corners.  The matted paper was embossed and then sanded.
     Hope over to the TSG blog and link up you creation for the new challenge.
     Happy Monday!

Supplies:  Paper--We R Memory Keepers "Hall Pass"; Recollections, Kraft Outlet chipboard, Copic XPress-it Blending card; Stamps--There She Goes Clear Stamps "What's Up Buttercup"; Ink--Copics; Tools--Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing folder, Sizzix Postage Stamp Frames; Miscellaneous--Recollections brads, Celebrate It ribbon, Michaels wooden button, Kraft Outlet Hang Tag String

This is beautiful, Tracy! I LOVE all the texture and the mix of elegant and rugged materials. The coloring and paper piercing are wonderful, and I really love the "anchors" you made to hold down the image!
Sounds like we are having the same weather as you......nothing but rain and gray skies. Our spring has disappeared again...
