A bright sunshiny day

That unfortunately does not seem to be something that we are going to have here in Calgary today.  It’s still a bit cloudy and cool today.  The last vestiges of winter are still lingering around.  I wish they would just go already.

Today’s challenge at Use it Tuesday is All About Spring.  It’s time to break out the flowers, the bright colors, the sunshine, all the good stuff.  As always you need to use up some of your stash so make sure you let us know in your post what you used.

I finally have used up all of the Lil Sprout collection by Crate Paper so here is my final project.  The stamp set is one from my stash that I don’t use enough by My Favorite Things.  It comes with its own sentiment as well.  I just used my spellbinders and inked it up with some Tim Holtz ink.  The bling is from my stash as well. I hope you like it.

Live in the Sunshine

Ah.  Sunshine.  I am living for the sunshine.  Winter’s here in Calgary are cold.  At least next week we leave for Cuba!  Todays ACAD was a simple one.  A great idea for any quick cards because this one took me NO time!  Using of course scraps and diecuts from my stash! Gotta love it.  I’m still trying to create as much as I can using stash stuff.  No new buying for awhile.

So here is the inspiration piece today

And here is my card

Nothing fancy about it, but a simple every day card.  Excuse the little bit of adhesive sticking out there, apparently I didn’t press my ribbon down hard enough!

Remember, the inspiration pieces can be found in A Card A Day by Papercrafts magazine which can be found at any bookstore or you can order it here.

I have a huge list of cards I need to make so I will be back with some more hopefully today.

BTW in case you were wondering..I’m doing a Biggest Loser challenge on FB so I was doing a Biggest Loser workout today and my butt kills! The fact that DH changed out my computer chair for one of those big balls is just adding to it! LOL
