Thank You For Your Kindness Card

What’s On My Work Desk This Week?

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! Spring is in the air – can you feel it? While we are still a week and a half away from the official start of spring, I’m feeling the energy of spring burst forth in my creative projects!

Spring is bursting forth in the crafting realm too, as paper crafters around the globe pull out their brightest spring greens, pinks and oranges – their prettiest flowers and blooms – and their sweetest stamps, punches and embellishments to create extraordinary cards and gifts for their friends and families!

Today’s card exemplifies these themes.

This year, I’ve begun working my way through some of the pretty patterned papers I’ve been stashing for no good reason.

I turned to my 6 x 6 SEI Jocelyn paper pad – combined a few of the patterned papers with a backdrop of pretty pink paper from a 6 x 6 TLC Paper Stackz pad – and began creating my own flower garden!

I layered and cut the Jocelyn papers to create a sunburst effect, then added bursts of stamped and layered flowers and a glittery butterfly to bring my garden to life!

I also filled my garden with the pretty flowers found in my Scotch Decorative Tape – you know, the tape I’ve been incorporating into every project I possibly can!

For my sentiment, I created a distressed tag that I popped out of a pretty stitched pink and orange pocket (pulling from some of the colors from the patterned SEI papers) and placing the message of gratitude front and center for the card’s recipient!

Now, it’s your turn to inspire us with your creativity! What have you created this week? Be sure to share your latest creations with us at one of our weekly parties – and be sure to visit the Art Challenge Blogs at the end of this post!

      So glad to share, Sandy, and glad you enjoy them – it takes awhile to cull them each week but it’s nice to have them all in one handy place!
      Have a lovely week and do share your lovely creations with us at Inspire Me Monday (I’m always looking for new talent to feature!)

  3. What a pretty bright card! Love all the colors and patterns. You’ve combined them well. That is fun tape and I can see why you’ve been using it a lot. The 50 shades of gray thing made me laugh. My Dio is all about just one shade of gray. He is very dedicated to it. Judy #67
