I spent a little time playin' in my craft room this afternoon! I was saddened to realize that it is already the last day of Spring Break for my kids and I, so I needed a little cheering up. I really enjoyed hearing the pitter-patter of rain and seeing the storm just outside my window while I created. I made this standard-size card using the new "Dotty for You" papers that will be available for customers to start purchasing very soon (April 17th)! I also used just a little bit of one of the B&T patterns from the Cruisin' paper packet X7154B (can you spot it? here's a hint...the paper is grey wool in color and it doesn't include dots). I LOVE this bright and bold color combo that makes me feel ready Spring: Creme Brulee, Lagoon, and Sunset with some Grey Wool thrown in as well (don't you know...Grey is the new Black! lol). Using these fun colors was just the thing I needed to cheer me up! I also used black ink and a Grey Flannel marker to do just a little coloring and shading on the dog. My card design is inspired by this weeks Heart 2 Heart Blog Sketch Challenge!
