WT311:anxious for spring

hi all!
bit of a late post as usual! i just do NOT have enough hours in the day to fit in all of my want to dos along with all of my need to dos and the needs had to come first. Pezza has been a 4 cups of coffee kinda kid today – sheesh she never stops!  she was in the bathroom earlier to wash her hands and in that time somehow managed to fill the garbage can with soapy water, fill the sink and dunk her whole head under!  really????

but i did get my card done for TIOT over at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design – Suzanne gave us a sketch to work with and i also included the Ways To Use It challenge from SCS – use gray as your neutral:
My papers are from the Kaisercraft Lush 6×6 paper pad. i love this pad – it is such an unusual and serene color scheme. Our sketch we were given to work with was wonderful!  i simply cannot buy any more nesties (wahhh!) so i used one of the cuts on the Lacey Labels Cricut cartridge to set off my image – i am loving this!  especially the little frame that goes on it too!  i have been playing with my quilling goodies too and wanted a little something for dimension so i added this simple quilled flower.  a few mini glittered skittles in the flower centers finished it off (tho i wish i had inked the cricut shapes).

i decided to use Bunni from the Sampler #3 set of elisabeth bell for SCACD stamps.  i colored her in with prisma pencils (no gamsol).  rather than just coloring the flowers on her basket handle i thought it would be a perfect spot for a little flower soft! i mixed a bit of orange into the meadow mix and sprinkled it on. i love how she turned out! she will be one of the cards i hand out when i go to my mom’s family reunion just before easter.

don’t forget to stop in at SCACD – there are lots of new goodies coming in!!!  she has new paper pads from my mind’s eye & bo bunny that rock, amazing new art stamps, the BRAND NEW COPIC COLORS, bo bunny trinkets – so much to choose from!
