CTD287 and WAW


Happy Thursday, everyone!  The Color Throwdown had a lovely color palette yesterday:

I did a real simple card using the Freshly Made Sketches sketch, turning it on its side, but I did it from memory, so my panels are not quite right:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Easter Card Crafty Secrets Bird Lovers Stampin

Here’s the sketch:
I will have to try that sketch again, LOL!    It also used the verse from Word Art Wednesday, and since eggs are a perfect Easter symbol, I thought the nest was an appropriate image.  Of course, in nature, the eggs would be all one color, but I am taking artistic license!

I did make another card, no stamping on the outside, but it uses a digital image from my files, but I can’t find the source.  It had both a front and a back image, so I printed them out and adhered them to a folded Soft Sky card, then trimmed the cardstock to fit:

Here’s the inside as well:


Most of my day yesterday was tending to a hyper child with a croupy cough….all. day. long!   Poor thing, she couldn’t even take a nap, she coughed so much.  We played outside and she was in a good mood, so I am hoping it’s just allergies! The doctor said the pollen was kicking in with a vengeance!  Anyway, we found a caterpillar on the pavement and she was intrigued (I know, she shouldn’t be lying on the ground, but it was only for a few seconds, trust me):


She was mad because she touched it and it stopped moving:


So I picked it up and let her feel it, and then we let it go!


Enjoy your day!

LOVE the card. I follow you daily and really look forward to seeing what you post as well as watching Cassidy grow up. She is such a sweet little girl. You are a lucky G'ma! :)

Sweet spring cards today LeAnne! Poor little Cassidy, hope she feels better soon, those croupy coughs are the worst. They said the pollen would be high for a couple of days. My son had a major headache from it yesterday.

Awe prayers to Cassidy and hope she is better soon. I LOVE your darling card LeAnne, very cute.

Beautiful card - it's a great interpretation of the sketch and lovely use of the colour choice too. Hope Cassidy recovers from her cough soon. Elizabeth xx

Love these cards, LeAnne! And your Cassidy is getting more beautiful every day. I'm so sorry she's been sick. The pollen is getting to me too. Let's hope we all make it through to a happy and healthy summer!

This is so beautiful...I love your simple lay-out and so happy you were able to incorporate the scriptures we shared. Thanks for blessing us with your wonderful artwork at Word Art Wednesday.
