April Showers

April Showers Bring may Flowers....right??? So I will be thankful for the rain we are getting today. LOL! I can't complain, the breeze we had flowing through the house last night was amazing! And 80 degrees :):):) ... if only for a short moment ;) ;) ;)

So how is your week looking? time moves so quickly. I have some goooood news! I had a few cards picked up for the recent Cricut Magazine calls! Wahoo! I am so glad that I am using it more and more and it is such a great tool to have in your arsenal of scrappy supplies.

You know what else every scrapper should have???? AN I-ROCK! Back in the beginning of the month, I won an i-rock over at the Imaginisce blog!!! Not sure if you have even been over there (I am sure you have) but they are beyond generous with their give-a-ways so check it out. In celebration of my winnings, I wanted to post a fun little project I made with some Imaginisce goodies.

It is a fun little gift card holder and perfect for Spring. I love these crayon boxes. They are so great for all your paper crafting needs.


Some stamping on Core'dinations...


More Stamping... and I cut the layers for the flower & the butterfly with some Spellbinders dies and then embossed it.

And can you see the rubons on the clothespin?
