Wishing You All Things Beautiful

Good morning peeps! How's your weekend? I had an adventure marathon, weekend. LOL, I am talking about Indiana Jones and The Mummy Returns movie marathon! Oldies but goodies. I do love Brandon Frasier. Yummie eye candy! :)

Also, did some cleaning. I can actually see the top of my desk. From now own, I am determine to buy less embellishments. I still have tons of brads and eyelets that I just never use, acrylic flowers, etc. No more buying embellishments for me. I guess at the end of my spring cleaning, I'll either package everything in a box and just sell it or I'll do a giveaway.

On to card, shall we? A lovely blogging friend recently helped me in getting some yummy Hero Arts goodies. One of them is the Friends definition that I used as a background on this cheery spring birthday card for Hero Arts March challenge. And yes... I am soooo ready for spring. For beautiful colors to pop up!
Challenges:
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo inspiration
Simply Create - power of flowers

I am using stamping markers by American Crafts for this card. The colors really pop out, don't they? Next card is a reject card from Paper Crafts submission. I am not too happy with this card, either. I think the window idea is cool, but the rest just didn't happen quite as I planned.

Challenges:
Less Is More - Pastel Colours

Hope your week start off wonderfully and like my card said I wish you all things beautiful! Hugs...

I like that "Miss you" card, reject or not! I love the red bird in the cage, and the button on the ribbon at the bottom is a great touch :)

I see nothing wrong with that adorable birdcage hanging in the window. I think it is very clean design and a cute little touch.

Hi, I love the birdcage card - the window idea is fantastic. I think the card works well. For me personally to balance the card I would have swapped the button and sentiment around. Hugs, Lynn. x
