Oh Happy Day!

 I hope someone is having a happy day out there -- a birthday, anniversary, new job -- or it's sunny!  I try to celebrate every day even on those days that are challenging.  Having beautiful spring weather certainly makes it a good day in my book and always uplifts me!
 

For my card I used several Reverse Confetti items (see below).  Taking the Striped Frame die, I inlaid colored cardstock.  For the center, I water colored using Distressed Oxide inks and gold embossed the sentiment on vellum adding a few sequins.  I love the feathers in the Boho Vibes set and color coordinated them with the cardstock colors.
I'm excited to share my card in these challenges:

April Showers

 April showers DO bring May flowers -- and my allergies can attest to it!  But I don't mind at all because Spring is my favorite season!  I love spring showers.  Everything smells so fresh and clean after the rain stops and the trees, flowers and plants just jump to life when next the sun shines!
 
 For my card, I used the new My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Showering You with Love stamps/dies.  I may have gone a little crazy with pattern paper, but couldn't resist the yummy designs in the American Crafts Shimelle True Stories 6x6 paper pack!
 I really enjoy paper piecing...can you tell?!




I'm happily entering my card in these fun challenges:

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #244 - Wreath

 Welcome to a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge!  Linda is our hostess this week and she has an awesome challenge for us:  Create a Christmas card with a wreath!  Can't wait to see what you'll share this week!


For my card, I'm using an exclusive die from Taylored Expressions.  The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Seasonal Sentiments set.  For the life of me, I cannot recall where I got the petal/flower dies ;)


Be sure to check out the gorgeous projects created by the rest of the Design Team:

Happy Easter!
I can't seem to get enough of this sweet little lamb from the new Reverse Confetti All About Ewe set.  For my card, I started with pattern paper from the True Love 6x6 pad and then incorporated Petals 'n Posies and Lacy Scallop Circle Confetti Cuts (LOVE!).  The design for my card was inspired by this month's Sketch For You To Try.
