I'm dreaming of spring...

Welcome to Unity's Friends With Flair Friday. Make sure you go to Unity's blog for a list of participants and find the flair for a chance to win some Unity goodies! Have you seen the newly released sets? Wow!

It's been very cold here in Croatia, so I felt like making some springy, bright cards. This first one uses the lamp and sentiment from Shine On. The little penguin is by Hero Arts. I'm entering this to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge to use a touch of green. What's spring without green, right? :-)

Penguin Lamp

Papers: GinaK Sweet Corn, Passionate Pink, Ivory, K&Co patterned papers
Ribbon: Certainly Celery grossgrain
Ink: Memento Black, Passionate Pink
Others: buttons, rhinestones

For my next card, I just love these Farm Fresh papers from October Afternoon paired with a Kraft card base. I used the cute trees, which are colored with Copics, from the Friendship, Love, Miracles KOTM. The sentiment is from Bevy of Butterflies. The ribbon and button are by PTI.

Lovely Trees

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    I just discovered your blog yesterday and LOVE it all! Your cards are just so darn cute!
    And I LOVE that you speak up for the Lord!
    I have one question: I just recently started a blog and I'm wondering if you could tell me how you do your great signature with the flourish? Thanks for any advice!
