Is it Spring yet?

Is Spring here yet 2014

Hello to all my wonderful friends and welcome to my blog. For this week at The Outlaws Twisted Thursday challenge as always it is “anything goes” and we add a twist and the twist is “to add a pocket to your card or make a pocket card”. The card I made today is called a “Criss Cross card” and if you would like to try any make one, I found the directions on Splitcoast stampers. Just to put this out to all my friends if you would like to be a guest designer for one month or for one week we would love to have you. Just put a GDT after your comment and I will try and get in touch with you. 

Our Sponsors for the month of March are

and Paper Temptress

My images is from Anne’s digital art and she is called “Suzy getting ready for”. I printed my image out on Cryogen Heavenly white card stock and you can fine that at Paper Temptress. The paper I used is Die Cuts with a View, Mariposa stack.

Here I removed the band I made for around the pocket card and placed a ribbon from stampin up 1/2inch stitched poly pear pizzazz, the image,  and poppy flower from Sizzix die. I set it in front of the pocket part and I should of taken a picture of it without the pocket behind.

The Sizzix poppy flower die can out so nice. I have several of the flowers dies and I want to start using them.

The little flourish I add was in my stash and thought it looked nice, so I added it. Added 3 metal dots to 3 of the corners. The little flowers come with the set from Heartfelt creations posy die. Added some Pearl pen color black to the centers of the flowers. I sponged around the edges with distress ink color rusty hinge.

I shared my other Orchid with you (still blooming beautifully) and this one was not blooming yet and I was not sure what color it was going to be (first time it has bloomed) so here is a picture and it is so beautiful. Not sure how much everyone knows about Orchids but once they bloom they last most of the time for more them 3 months.
