Well, I'm pretty sure that everyone is really in the mood for Spring!  I have see some really beautiful creations from a lot of you and have truly been inspired.  Also helping my inspiration is my daughter and her husband.  They got a dandy little green house and have been busy planting.  I decided toget my own garden going too.  With all this Spring fever going on I created this card.  It is to congratulate my kids on the fab job they did building their green house!

I used a darling stamp from Dearie Dolls which I colored with my Copics.  I added some pre-made daisies and a gold charm that says "BLOOM".

Hope it is soon Spring in your neighborhood!  In the meantime, try making a Spring themed card to get in the mood!  Happy Spring!

The birds are singing and the sun is shining ~ at least where I am!  Hopefully it is where you are too, or will be soon, because Spring is on the way!  To celebrate this lovely time of year our challenge over at CC&CC is BRING ON SPRING!  Our sponsor is the fab Doodle Pantry and they gave us two cute images to play with.  I used "Song Birdies", they look like they are chirping out songs of the season!  I used a die cut to frame them and colored them with my Copic's.  This was a really fun image to color!  I made a 3 panel background, added some ribbon and dew drops.

So fly on over to CC&CC and check out the inaspiration by our great DT.  Get your mojo working and join in the fun!

Welcome to challenge #34 at CC&CC!  I have some VERY exciting news!  I am now the official owner and blog master of Chocolate, Coffee & Card Challenges!  Jenn, the former owner had to step down.  I wish her everything good and positive, and she will be missed.  I am very honored to be following in her footsteps.

So, lets get to it!  First off, I had the pleasure of introducing our new DT, a super group of talented ladies.  Be sure to drop by and get introduced and see their lovely creations.

Our generous sponsor is Crafty Sentiments.  I have used their cute image called Mia.  Our theme is BANNERS, fun!  I colored my image with my Copic's and framed her with a die cut frame.  I then added the glitz, lace and flowers.  I made up a new fold and call it "The Flying Nun Fold" because it reminds me of Sally Field's hat in that program, lol!  I added two pieces of balsa wood (painted with pink nail polish) to the top of the card to hold up my banner tied with pink and white twine.  The banner pieces were cut with my Silhouette and then I added the peel off letters.

Please come join us for this fun challenge at CC&CC and a chance to win 4 free digis from Crafty Sentiments and meet our new DT!!  See you there!
