a day to create...

A day at home may be risky...the kids left to play together and hopefully not start a brawl, me tucked away crafting (yeah!), a house that is a little on the messy side (where does that come from?) and an empty pantry of kid friendly food. Time to bake some cookies I suppose. But before I do...the reason I sit down at the computer each day, sharing a few creative goodies. The first photo is for Glue Arts today. A little fabric spring gift bag. Found a large bag of flower petals in my closet the other day that just never seem to find a place in my projects, until today. A few layers of flowers, fabric and a fabric button to top it all off. Used Papertrey Ink stamps and ink, Martha Stewart glitter and a premade fabric bag from Stampington. To see a complete list of supplies and instructions, head on over to Glue Arts here.On to another spring inspired tutorial for Momenta today. A little peek-a-boo window envelope and matching card. A complete list of supplies, instructions and additional photos can be seen here. The next two cards are from my "just because" moment yesterday evening after an entire day out with friends...This card was created using Pink Paislee Prairie Hill papers, My Mind's eye paper, Chic Tags, Glitz stamp, Papertrey Ink stamp, Tim Holtz pin and ribbon from Frost It Pink.Oh how I love the bright colors of the second card. Spring Jubilee paper from Pink Paislee, Heidi Swapp paper, Chic Tags, Glitz stamp, Papertrey Ink button and stamp and, of course, gotta have the beautiful ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique to complete the look. The coming of spring...gotta love it (ok, maybe minus the allergies a bit)!
