No More Snow ...Please!

I definitely live in the wrong state for someone who hates snow and cold. We have had a ton dumped on us in the past 24 hours and more predicted for next week. And cold? Oh my....about 9 (yes I said 9) degrees here. It will probably dip below zero later tonight the weather man predicts. I am so ready for Spring already. I hibernated in my craft room today and was searching to find something 'spring like' to lift my mood. So...I made the cute card below, with a little snow lady I colored months ago. Yes, I know she is made of snow, but she has spring like blossoms on her hat so that counts.

The stamp is actually a paint pattern from a book that I've had from my painting days. I can't remember the artists name but will post it later when I find it. The lacy mat behind the stamp was created on my cutting machine. The leafy embellishment is a Cuttlebug diecut and the rose I made myself.

I also needed to add to my Valentine stash too so I created 2 more cards. The first I've seen on the web and I've been wanting to try it. So I used a cute scroll design from Silhouette and cut it on my die cutting machine. I added punched hearts from red glittery paper and added a red ribbon.

I just loved making this next robot card with his chocolate candy tummy. I wrapped his tummy in pink patterned paper and added a punched glitter heart. The robot is a cutting file from Silhouette. Isn't he just too cute?

Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe and warm this weekend.
