"Friends"

Hello All
Mother Nature has dealt us another of her not so pleasant snow storms yesterday
and we have a bit more of snow/rain mix predicted for tonight and next week...
so I want to know..."who the heck stole Spring?"

 
I am entering this card in the Tuesday Trigger Elegant Emerald
using the "trigger" shown below
from the Moxie Fab World
 
 

 
 I also  made this card (aren't the colors yummy?) for the challenge at
"Our Creative Corner" to use this photo for inspiration
using the colors~patterns~and metal....
 
Well, I have to tell you I was excited, as I got to use up a few of my older things...
but first...the background was cut out of a handmade paper I just purchased
for another project, but can't remember what that project is...(that happens when you get older)
I cut it out with the chicken wire die from Cheery Lynn Designs...
I made a stacked Rosette from the TH Alterations mini paper rosettes die...
the flowers I just bought on clearance at Michaels for 50 cents (to use for St Pattys Day)
the "metal"word  is an "oldie" I have had for ever from Making Memories
the ribbon is scraps and now all gone...yeah...
the little leaves are left overs from a Cheery Lynn project
and the cardstock is SU Taken With Teal....
well, there you have it....like??
 
 
Don't forget I will be a "guest Top Talent Thursday designer" on April 4th
at "Our Creative Corner"...where you might learn a few of my "secrets"....
 
 
and wanted to share "my" first signs of Spring....(excuse the messy garden)
these are getting ready to bloom (now covered in snow)...
known as Hellebores...or the common name "Lenton Rose"
