Quiet Time

It has been a very quiet weekend at my house. I am the only one here, and I've enjoyed it. I can eat, sleep and cook when I want....or not, without any distractions. I cleaned my house yesterday so I could play in my scrap room today without feeling guilty. I'm one of those people who CAN craft in a messy house, I just can't be as creative when it's messy. A little voice says "You should be cleaning, not playing"
Anyway, I am ready for Spring and decided to make some cards today with a light, springy feeling.

This first card I created using some of my favorite buttons, and a new set of button card digital stamps that I will be releasing soon. They should be available in all my stores sometime next week. The set has 10 different stamps that you can use to display your favorite buttons. I will be showing you more cards made using these stamps later this week.

The decorative paper used in this card is from ColorBox,the lace mat I cut with my cutting machine, the pink rose I made ,the lace ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the heart pin was a gift from my daughter.

This second card I have been thinking about for awhile. Birds and birdcages seem to be a popular embellishment on cards this year, and they are showing up on blogs everywhere. So I needed to add mine to the mix.
Remember you can click on any photo for a close up view.
The birdcage is a Silhouette diecut file, the bird and leaves are a Cuttlebug die, the paper is from ColorBox (from Walmart)and the flowers I made with a punch.

Thanks for stopping by, keep warm where you're at and take some time out for yourself this week.
