Challenge masters-April challenges

Hello, it's a beautiful day here in eastern PA, and it's my oldest's birthday! So shortly we'll be heading off to her party. Until then I thought I'd share a couple of cards I did for challenges over at CHALLENGE MASTERS. They have a ton of groups to join in on, so if you haven't checked them out you really should-

The first one is for the April color challenge and was to include: yellow, blue, spring green, and grass green. Supplies used were: cardstock:bazzill; rub-ons:basic grey; alphas: thickers; stickers: Heidi Grace; crocheted flower: other and mesh was magic mesh. Yes-- I dug deep in my stash for that one! Trying to use up some old stuff.

Next was the challenge for the April card challenge and it was to be a Mother's Day card with 2 layers, at lest one flower, a swirl and some glitter or stickles. The colors were turquoise, white, yellow, and light green. The supplies I used were cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: American Crafts; flowers: Prima; letter stickers: Making Memories; swirl: Prima; butterflies: K & Company. I used a light touch of stickles on the butterflies.

Thanks for looking- off to take birthday pics. Have a great day

Spring has sprung!

Oh! My, have I been a bad blogger. Sorry about that, I had no idea that so much time had lapsed. We've been busy with family business here. My oldest daughter had her heart surgery (very successfully) though, she's now having severe migraines, so wish us luck with that, and my dear sister-in-law has lost her battle with cancer. So we're hoping to be moving on to better times here.

I thought I'd share a picture of some of the flowers out the front of our house. Hopefully the warmer weather is here to stay. I'll be back later this week with some things I've done for CHALLENGE MASTERS.

Thanks for looking, .....Hugs,
