I am thinking positively.  Spring is here, it just isn't showing its face yet.  We have had 6 months of snow now and still have about 3 feet of it in our yard.  Our walks had to be cleaned three times last week because of more snow.  God tells us to give thanks in all things so I am thanking Him for the moisture that the farmers will be happy to have.  Sorry it has taken me two months to post but I have been very busy the last while with Splitcoaststampers.  I am on the Birthday Committee and am responsible for mentoring all the new volunteers.  I have just done the Annual Spring Cleaning which is almost completed.  For this I send out about 130 emails to all of our volunteers to check to see if they want to continue making cards and to make sure we have all the correct information.  As the replies come in I have to keep updating the volunteer database and when it is completed I send it to our Co-ordinator Barb.  I love doing this and being part of the Splitcoaststampers, I find everyone to be so supportive, caring and loving and a great place to learn all things to do with paper crafting.

Here is a card I did recently.  It was made for one of the challenges and we were to make a card with smiles.  I love Penny Black stamps, especially the Hedgies and thought this little guy had such a sweet smile.
The base is close to cocoa with a layer of cameo coral that has been embossed with a cuttlebug folder.  The image is stamped with black Momento ink on white and die cut with a Nestibilities die.  Mounted this on top of a close to cocoa circle cut out with a Coluzzle.  Image is colored with Copics markers and popped up on dimensionals.  The two corners are a cuttlebug die and added a couple of pearls.  I really like the white lace down the side.  A very simple, cute card that I am very happy with.
