Weekly DT Inspiration @ FTHS

Hello crafty friends!I hope this finds you all well :)
I didn't get a chance to make a weekly sketch card this week. It's just been a lil' crazy around here lately. Between work, people out sick at work, sister in law having open heart surgery, planning & finishing stuff for my daughter in laws baby shower coming up in 2 weeks & my niece's wedding in a month........YIKES! Deep breath - I can do this...LOL!

So, I opted to 'catch up' by making a card for our weekly DT inspiration post. I think Ali is just a darling image, and then to pair it with a cute kitten...what's not to LOVE right! Don't know about you, but I am SO ready for spring. We are bracing for another snowstorm tomorrow. Anywhere from 2 to 4 inches here by us, to 12+ inches about an hour and a half from here. Depending on how the storm tracks. Freezing rain, high winds...YUCK!

That's what inspired me to make this spring like card! I suppose the colors could really go either way - spring or fall. But I went w/more yellows to give it a more spring vibe.

  1. Spring is there ! Adorable card, Michelle. Fabulous colors and layout. I hope you have time to calm down and relax a bit !

  2. This is just lovely. The bright yellows do make me think of spring, which I need badly as we've had a terrible winter here in Southern Ontario CANADA. I love that image and how well you've coloured it. That DP and ribbon/flower really add to your card too...just lovely.
