Springtime Cards

Hi friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Unfortunately, for me, I have spent most of it sick.  I feel terrible and hope it will pass before I go to work tomorrow.  My dear, sweet Mom gave me a container of homemade soup today--I can't think of anything better when feeling under the weather!

Today, I have a couple of quick springtime cards to share using papers from Prima's Anna Maria collection.

This card is my favorite of the two.  I love those skeleton leaves made with Prima dies.  The flowers are also Prima.  The crystal flower is Zva and the crystal frame on the journaling card is from Martha Stewart.  A little rose trim and a bow add the final touches.

My next card is similar to the first using the same color palette.  The doily and crystal oval frame are from Martha Stewart.  The pink flower and rhinestones are from Recollections, and the button is from Jolee's Boutique.

All the papers were cut from the 6x6 paper pad which is perfect for cardmaking.  I also inked the edges a bit.

Well, that's it for me today.  I think I'll heat up some soup in a bit and rest.  Also, welcome to my new followers.  I thank everyone for taking the time to stop by and leaving a comment.  It means a lot.  Have a fantastic day!
