Is it spring yet? 😬


It is a very cold April, still lows of -20 and lots of snow yet. I am looking forward to the days like this one of children playing from Flourishes. I put a piece of clear acetate inside a door frame and placed it over. Die cut Happy Birthday from SSS.

Scenic cards

I used several pages of yupo, cut into various pieces and swiped them through alcohol inks and blending solution on a craft mat. Once they dried, I chose Stampscapes scenic stamps that suited each piece. Love these Color combos!
