We are having the craziest weather here today...
we have had below zero, teens, 20's, 30's 40's, snow, ice all this week
and today, gloomy doomy rain on top of our mountains of snow
to cause flooding and a messy day!! Oh, and it's to get in the 50's today....
tomorrow...back to the 20's and snow!!!
All I can say is "Mr Spring" had better show up soon!!
I wanted to get a few things done today as I think I will be gone
from my computer the next 4 days or so....
We need to go "North" and check on our house there to make sure all is well.
We were unable to get a full load of propane and has us concerned ....
So, all that being said, I really wanted to join in "The Shabby Tea Rooms" challenge
using the cute inspiration photo below......
and also in the challenge going on at
Craft Hoarders Anonymous using the color inspiration photo below!!
I normally make a project for just one challenge in mind, but it just so happens
that these two challenges fell into place together for me...
I used a darling little image from Crafty Secrets and built my entire card around it.
I just love vintage baby cards, and these sweet little "joy buds" stole my heart!!
The background paper I have had a few years....my sister gave it me for a Xmas present
it is from DCWV...and has a quilt pattern on it...so cute for a baby card, soft and pretty!!
I made my little banner from snippets of ribbon (I can never throw anything away)...
and the cute little baby beads...well, I hate to admit it, but have been in my stash for about 15 years...
The little blue bird...he has lived here at least 2 years.....what can I say, I am a "HOARDER"!!
The christening dress is a cottage cutz die...it is so sweet and vintage looking!!
