April Showers....

...we know that old saying. It's been raining here some, but is getting warmer and the flowers are beginning to bloom i.e. tulips, hyacinth, grape hyacinth, bulbs. A lot of my perennials are making their way out of the ground too, so I'm happy. I love this time of year - new life! This card is stamped with a Unity stamp and then I pieced in the umbrella with some paper I had lying around. I love the way it turned out - it just makes me think of spring :) The sentiment is also a Unity stamp and inside it says "with a friend like you". So glad I have friends that make my life sweeter! Thanks for stopping in and hope your week is going well! Blessings - Brenda

Whooo Loves You...

I do! Glad you stopped by today! I made this cute little card b/c I had a picture of one sort of like it and loved the way it looked. It was simple and fun! The owl is from CTMH, as is the sentiment. The papers were some I had in my stash and love how there are little owls on the paper to go along with the big guy. Hope your week is going along smoothly. It's been absolutely gorgeous here for a few days, but I think there's a change coming in the next few days. *sigh* I guess we DO need the rain :) Hugs! Brenda

I got a page finished!

Hello and Happy Monday! Spring has finally arrived here in Wyoming (I'm sure of it!). The tulips are fixin' to bloom, hyacinth are breaking through the soil, and a lot of the perennials I've been waiting to see are making their appearance after a VERY long winter. I'm so excited, as this is one of my favorite seasons if for nothing less than the newness of life! The sun is shining and I couldn't be happier to see it getting so nice during the day. I finished this page up today, after having started it in Texas a few weeks ago. It was the last of my page packs that I took along and I'm pleased as punch to have those all done. I think it was 13 in all that I was able to take and now have completed. These pics are of my daughter's 8th birthday, almost 3 years ago. Yes, I'm behind and will never be caught up...that's just the way it is. So happy to have some of my older pics getting scrapped. Hope your week is blessed. God's goodness is all around us if we just look! With love, Brenda

Like No Other!

Hi! Long time no post, huh? Bad blogger! It's been a long dry spell for me - a lot like winter, without the dry - just long. I went to Texas and scrapped with my bud, Stacey, and we had such a great time together! I got 12 pages done and was working on the last one when it was time to pack up, so pretty much used up all the page packs I had put together. I was pretty proud of myself...and some of the pics were old, when my kiddies were little. So thanks Stace for taking time out of your schedule to come scrap and spend the day with me - I love ya! This card is my first attempt at coloring with Copics. If you haven't had the chance to use Copic markers, they are truly a blast and give such a lovely effect. They make it so easy to blend
and the colors are so vibrant. I'm hooked!!! YIKES - they're expensive! But, I have so many "color book" image stamps that I needed a great way to color and I think I've found it!
This is a Stamping Bella image (kinda looks like what I do all day!), and the word stamp is from Unity. The paper is stuff from my stash - Bazzill basics colored and SU! white cardstock. The others are misc scraps that were punched with my circle punch. Pretty cute, huh?
Hey - I hope I still have some followers that'll read this post - ha! Have a fabulous Tuesday and I'll be back much sooner than last time - I PROMISE! Hugs - Brenda
