I'm getting my supplies together for a weekend crop with some of my online friends so I probably won't post a card today. I have a couple more finished but I need to finish the scrapbook layout for our contest at the Crop. I'm really crazy to have entered the contest since I don't scrapbook. We were given a kit and we need to use something of everything in the kit, and we can't add anything. I have most of the pictures figured out, but I'm having a little trouble deciding what I want to do with some of the paper. I know I should just go to some of the sites that have sketches for scrapbook layouts, but I have an idea in my mind how I want my pictures on the page, and none of the sketches I've seen are going to match my criteria. Do I have myself in a pickle?? LOL If I manage to get this layout done, I'll post it.
Have a great day and happy spring!

The products are all Stampin Up and I just love the springy colors: Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, and Wild Wasabi. The stamp is Embrace Life and Kathy stamped the main image and cut out the flowers and added a little glitter in the center of each flower and "popped up" each little one on the main image. It's such a cheery card! Hope it chases away any of your winter blahs. It sure helped mine!

I found that using the markers direct to rubber worked great for the middle flower on the three flower stamp, and to color the small blossoms and branch on the longer top stamp that is mostly covered with the medallion. Using markers direct to rubber gives you all kinds of new options I find. ;-)
Time to call it a night. Did anyone else notice that March really came in like a lion this year? It's cold here in Ohio again and it snowed off and on today. Hope we aren't going to get much accumulation.
