Spring Card and Die Cuttin Divas!

 Today I am  SO excited to be the Guest DIVA over at Die Cuttin' Divas! I just love this challenge blog! They are SUPER nice and always have such fun challenges for us.   This week our challenge is PASTELS!  Can't think of a better challenge for Spring.  Here is my card:

I used my ever favorite Cricut Cartridge - Elegant Edges.  Don't you adore this paper!! It is from a Colorbok book I picked up at Walmart! I love the spring colors.  The sweet sentiment is from a children's song and it truly expresses how I feel about Spring.  My own Teal Ribbon, VersaMagic Ink in Malted Mauve ( love that name), Recollections Rhinestones, Heidi Grace Metal Dots and the font is Bradley Hand.  That's it! Super easy when you have wonderful products to work with.  My Thanks again to Georgiana and the rest of the crew at Die Cuttin' Divas for a super DIVA experience!  Happy Spring Everyone:) If you are not following me yet, click that follow button! I love to make new friends!

Easter in Pastels

Hello My Friends!  It is April 6th and I have 3 inches of snow outside that fell last night!  Looks like a soggy Easter Egg hunt again this year.  Gee Whiz, I Finally got an Easter card done!!!  Maybe I have drug my feet because I have never really sent out any Easter Cards.  This card is formed around some Easter subway art I found on the web that you could download...just can't for the life of me remember where I found it.  There is so much wonderful stuff out there to enjoy!  Here is the card:

I really enjoy working with pastel papers and they are the epitome of Spring.   I used the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge.  This fab cartridge is a staple for my cricut and I use it a lot.   This lovely paper is from colorbok,  Rhinestones from Recollections, Dragonfly from K & Co., Versamagic ink, green grosgrain ribbon and the font inside is Amaze.  Pretty simple!  Here's wishing ALL of you a wonderful Easter and lovely warm spring weather!  This card has been entered in the following challenges:
