Look what fun you can have when you freeze balloons with colored water. Aren't they fun? Just leave them outside overnight and then pop the balloons.

I participated in Holly K.'s Rubberredneck Spring online class and here's one of the cards I created for her sketch challenge. The other is a picnic basket I found in my file. I filled it with s'more ingredients. S'mores always conjure up summer memories for me. I didn't have magnetic fasteners which the original directions called for. The color combo was: black, crushed curry, and Bermuda bay.

Add small little box I decorated for a gift.

 A sympathy card using a color challenge from Rubberreneckstampede classes.

I made a little envelope using the new punch board I got from Santa for Christmas. (don't tell, I'm Santa)  I used the fun SAB set.

watercolor welcome spring

This card was made for a Rubber redneck color challenge. I have been practicing the watercolor look. Funny how trends sure come and go and then are eventually back again . I sponged the doily to match the theme. It's not what I'd typically do but I think it turned out pretty.

A card I made for an online card challenge. I really love stampin up's butterfly embosslits die. They never go out of style and look great using any color of cardstock and work for many occasions.  Think spring everyone.

Winter birthday card

We do all get a little flaky in the winter, especially by the end of Jan. into Feb. I don't know how it is in your area, but around here we call it "cabin fever". I love snowflakes just not the cold cold that  goes along with it.

time to ride bikes again

 I made this card last fall. Living in the hills and country, bike riding is something I stopped doing when my kids were young unless we took our bikes to town. Now that my kids are grown I'm remembering some of the loves I had before kids. This fall I want to go to town and  ride my bike again. I top card is the inside. The leaves are just some buttons my mom had in her stash. I just cut the shanks off of them and glued them on.
