Spring has to be around the corner

With my two cards that I am posting today and with the photos I am adding, you would think that spring was here but our weather outside this week is any but...
This first card makes use of the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. After I looked at what the trigger images was for the week, I stumbled upon a blog hop for these digital papers from Digital Design House. They look like they were made to go with the trigger! That meant I had to give it a try. The downloads for this digital kit are free and each design team member has a different part of the kit on her blog. The papers I used are from Jen Allyson's blog download. I opened a Word document and inserted the papers and the label. I printed them out on the Curious Iridescent Cryogen White cardstock from that I just love to use.
The label shape is part of the kit and the butterfly is a Hero Arts stamp.
For this card, I used the 2 Sketches 4 You #50 sketch and the WoodGrain challenge on the CARDS blog. I so love my woodgrain Hero Arts stamp so it was fun to use it again, I stamped it with black ink and added Glimmer Mist.
Notice the cardstock for the card base, that is from the new Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions collection with Core'dinations. The design is part of the cardstock and I just sanded it slightly. The bird cage was colored with Copic markers and Glimmer Mist.
And, of course, some more photos!
We were playing with bubbles this last weekend and my granddaughter was having so much fun creating some very interesting bubbles.
Can you believe how long this one is?
And, how about a really weird shape!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Lindalou said... response to the comment you made on my blog. Although I haven't yet read the No. 1 Women's Detective Agency, I have seen the few stories done on HBO and they were wonderful. I really do need to read this series as I already love the characters.
