Bus stop, wet day....

Recently one of my cards was top pick at the C.R.A.F.T. challenge, and they asked me to do a guest DT stint for this week's challenge.  The theme is Easter/spring, and I chose to make a spring showers card. (That's quite appropriate considering our weather.)
My card features a sweet image from The Paper Shelter, which I colored in pencils, adding some stamped shrubbery on the side.  The image is die-cut with a Spellbinders pierced oval. The clouds are cut with a die from Whimsy Stamps called Stitched Clouds.
The papers are all snippets -- the three patterned pieces are from a really old stack. The scalloped strip in the middle was cut from a snippet that was only an inch wide (why do I keep some of these things?)  The clouds were cut from bits of white.
If you're in the mood to do an Easter/spring card, hop on over to C.R.A.F.T. #460. You could win a prize from Eureka Stamps.

My card is for these challenges:

Pixie's Snippet Playground -- use snippets
Cuttlebug Mania -- spring
Stamplorations -- Spring
Crafting from the Heart #199 -- anything goes
Pammie's Inky Pinkies 1811 -- anything goes
Word Art Wednesday#327 -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper


  1. Lovely card - and congratulations on your guest designing

  2. Really love this card Sandy! Such a cute couple and really pretty colours as well. I did giggle about the tiny snippets remark you made in your post. I'm exactly the same - really it's a fear that one day I won't be able to find a little piece of card to match something. Sigh.
