TSG154 & CFC50

April 30, 2012

Happy Moday everyone!
It's time for another TSG challenge!:) This week our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week, Laurel! She is challenging us to make a card or project using May flowers!! Since April is almost over, and we all know how the saying goes, it is time for May flowers, so be sure to use SOMETHING floral on your card, whether it be paper, stamps, or embellishments.


For today's card, I used Forever set (image) and Bloom set (sentiment). Both sets are perfect for the challenge, aren't they!
I'm also entering this card to this weeks CAS-usal Fridays challenge (CFC50), which theme is flowers or trees.

Please hop over to the TSG blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from other Trendsetters! I hope you'll have time to play along with us this week!:)

Thank you for stopping by.

Inspired By #18

April 10, 2012

The inspiration photo over at the Inspired By challenge #18 is so pretty that I had to play along with!



I loved bright and cheery colors on this photo, but I knew these were out of my 'safe' zone. So I decided to pick up only yellow and to follow the 'weather' theme.



Thank you for stopping by!
