Double D - SPRING

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and today's theme is:

Here's a pretty mood board to inspire you!
Look at all that springtime goodness ...

That pink umbrella really caught my eye so here's what I've created for you today . . .

Of course we all know that you are guaranteed to need an umbrella (or 2) in the Springtime here in NE Ohio and a good pair of rubber boots (wellies some folks call them) are good to have also.  Here I've used a fun die set from Sue Wilson called 'Rain or Shine' as well as a Frantic Stamper sentiment called 'Spring'.

Sue Wilson Designs - Necessities Collection - Rain Or Shine
Frantic Stamper - Dies - Spring

I used a Tim Holtz 'snow' embossing folder to mimic rain (hope it worked lol).

We have this fabulousKaren Burniston 'Happy Spring' die offered as theprize to one lucky random winner.  Remember ... you gotta play to win!

  3. Your bright pink umbrellas and wellies is darling! We call them muck boots here on the east coast, but I like to call them wellies. It sounds much nicer! Happy spring to you Darlene and happy crafting!

  4. Oooh oooh Happy Spring! In the middle of what is going on it's so nice to see a pretty little card like yours! Makes me want to go splash in some puddles....well if we had any and if Penny were still here lol Be Well!

  5. Bright and cheery - just what we need right now!!

  6. All the things that you need for a typical spring. I have a weakness for the bright pink that you used as it really makes a statement. I also love the header on your blog.

  8. So cute! This makes me happy and we need that right now! The embossed background works does look like rain drops. Dancing in the rain is still one of my favorite things to do. Beautiful colors too!

  9. The pink umbrella caught my eye too, but it is such a pretty board that every part caught my eye, I love this die set and how you used it, and the bright pink is awesome.

  10. Cute card with all those spring necessities and wonderful colors. Very eye catching design.
