Hello & Thank You

We had sun & clouds yesterday, so started the Spring yard work.  Always rewarding to see how much nicer things look, although I still have a lot of roses to prune. Hard to imagine some of you are getting more snow, but maybe you can think Spring when you see my cards today.
First up is another entry for W&W BD Bash--this time Color Challenge with Heather P & Gold + Watercolor Challenge with Heather H.  I'm hoping gold counts as a neutral for the color challenge.  The watercolor panel is smooshed with watered down Distress Inks abandoned coral, peacock feathers & shabby shutters.  I added my favorite gold splatters--Distress Stain tarnished brass.  Back to my obsession with foiled self-adhesive fun foam--haha! This die is absolutely perfect for it!  The rest of the sentiment is from PTI Wonderful Words: Hello & is stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate. The panel is mounted with fun foam to a card front covered in textured coral cardstock. Might send this with a Happy Easter greeting inside.  I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday.

Next is a card heading to a sweet blogging friend using my newest SSS die--Heart Banner. I had St Patrick's Day in mind & inked the Sizzix tag die cut with Distress Ink mowed lawn--love that color of green! The sentiment is from SSS Hello Friends & the sweet bow is a PPP die cut.  Fun to "color" the hearts & sentiment with Stickles.  I'm entering the challenges at SSS Flickr, SSS Wednesday & CASology.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  12. 2 gorgeous cards but the first one with that golden sentiment is my favorite ( hope you don't mind....) I also love that soft, muted background. Ohhh working in the garden; that sounds lovely! We had frost here again; not much. But the temperatures are not going up yet. We are waiting for spring...:)

  13. I love the smooshed background on your first card. Such soothing colours. It has turned bitterly cold here in the UK so I'm not venturing out into the garden just yet even though it is crying out for a tidy up. Hugs Mrs A.
