A break from the cold...



I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but here in PA it's SOOO COLD...and rainy... and gloomy......so I decided to take a break from the Christmas, Halloween and *cold season* cards, and make something with this pretty Sarah Kay Spring is Back stamp. The colors are for today's' JUGS3 Challenge and the fun layout is Card Patterns Sketch 37 that I saw one Renee's blog. I took my inspiration from Renee and changed the large oval to a different shape.

The aqua panel is up on foam tape and so is the sentiment tag. I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the flowers and the little girl's blouse.

Here in Central FL, we finally got a break this morning from our record-breaking-temps in the 90's. It's so gorgeous out today, it's starting to feel like Fall here....even though it will more than likely be short-lived.

I just love this one Denise...what an adorable image, so sweet, and again, you did a fabulous job coloring her in. All of your embellies are great too...especially that tag!

Happy Saturday!

Love the colors and papers Denise! This is so soft and pretty!!

Wish you could share your cold weather!! I'm sick of the 80's and upper 70's!! I could use a good 40's. I'd even welcome some rain!!!

Stay warm my friend!! And I'll continue to run the air conditioner here. *groan* Hugs!!

Soooo pretty, Denise!!! Such pretty colors, coloring, and I love the layout!!! We are still having warm weather here but it supposed to get down in the 40's in the morning. I better dig out my jeans!!!

Whimsey said...

Oh wow; what a beautiful card Denise; I just LOVE the colors and your coloring is spectacular!

It's been pretty darn cold here in KS too; at least we seem to be done with the rain for a bit (good thing, it rained/misted for 4 days straight last week).

Enjoyed watching the race at LMS; but I have to say - I'm tired of JJ winning. I like the guy, I really do, but I really do not want him to win a 4th championship. :D Come one, let someone else win. tee hee

Fantastic coloring job, Denise. I was in Harrisburg last week and it was cold - had to bring out the wool coat! Hope it's a little better now! Great card!
