Just a reminder that Mary of http://carolinacardsbymaryh.blogspot.com/ has a second drawing for blog candy that ends 3/26.

This card today uses a 2002 SU  lilly stamp colored with Copics, a SB die oval and a sentiment from DeNami. Those little gold circles are from Hero Arts, I'm pretty sure. They, too, are older. A little WOS in the flower centers. We are back to cold today after a Sunday in the 60's. I need to start working at cleaning out the garage but I need a long stretch of time to drag everything out and really reorganize and purge. Hopefully that will happen soon. It's getting me down having all that stuff in the garage. Be kind to one another.

Edited to add: I forgot to mention the paper and Greta https://ggnursecreations.blogspot.com/ asked about it. I did not make it, it is a sheet from a 6x6 pack made by Glitz called Vintage Blue. The pack is a mix of blue and yellows and it is lovely. I've had it a long time too and I'm going to start using up my papers.

  1. Good morning Brenda! What a beautiful Easter Lily! I love the yellow background. We are having the same weather...sunny and warm, the next it is raining cats and dogs...at this moment it is just cloudy, but I think the rains are heading our way! Have a wonderful day friend...after all we have only been in "spring" for two full days!!

  2. Gorgeous coloring, Brenda--love that stamp! Would you believe those are old-fashioned sequins?! Yep--I have them, too, & they're beautiful on this card! Love the background--printed paper or did you make it? I've started taking tiny steps in organizing & purging, so maybe I'll finally get somewhere with it. Hugs, Greta

  3. Thanks for sharing the candy link. I love this blast of cheerful yellow, and so perfect for Easter. Love that background paper, and of course the S/B oval mat is one of my fav dies. The pale spring green looks lovely with these flowers too. Good for you at shopping your stash. (I think there are some challenges for that!) We have about 20 degrees colder than the lovely 83 we had yesterday. TFS & Hugs. Stay warm.

  4. This is so gorgeous, Brenda!! I love the flowers!! You colored them beautifully!! The background is fabulous!! I hate that it's chilly again. I had to wear my winter coat out this morning and I really don't like to do that in the spring!! Temps are supposed to hit the 70's this weekend, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed ;) Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  5. Hi Brenda, what a lovely spring like card. It's been very wet here today and colder as well. As for garage clearing out, I've started clearing mine but it never seems to look much different.
