Gifts of Spring

Okay, so I'm on this Design Team now and, it's true, I have a lot of images at my disposal. But it seems like everyone is creating with scarecrows and pumpkins, snowmen and santa. I didn't really feel like doing that today, so I chose this little darlin'. It's Thelma again and this time she's bearing gifts of spring...some potted tulips, in a cracked pot no less! LOL! Gotta love Thelma! I also decided to keep my card very simple, no fancy punches, no buttons, no glitz, no glam. I wanted to create something that a beginner could re-create and a seasoned card crafter could build on. I love Thelma, I think she's a hoot! If you haven't stopped by DZ Doodles lately, you're really missing out!

Supplies-Card stock:Stampers White, New Leaf, Melon Berry(PTI). Paper: Green Tea Leaves pad(PTI). digital image:Thelma with Tulips(DZ Doodles). sentiment stamp:Mailbox Greetings(PTI). Ink:Melon Berry(PTI). Ribbon:Celery striped(Stamp Simply). Copic Markers. Scor-Pal.

Today is the day I usually begin decorating the house for Autumn. It's over 100 degrees at my house today, fall is just not in the air! The trees are changing, so that's a good sign. I'm ready to start knitting again and wrap up in something warm and cozy. I want to make big pots of soup and homemade biscuits. I'm ready to smell pumpkin spice and cinnamon clove candles burning. And I long for cooler days. Sooo, I'm just sittin' here...waitin'! *sighs*

Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Until next time...

What a cute card Barb. I love that image.

Crazy that it's 100 degrees at your house but very cold here. Fall has definitely arrived in Colorado. I even had to turn on our heater.

It's felt very fall-like in my neck of the woods, but I well remember 100 degree days in October, so I know where you are coming from. Great image, great coloring, great card!

Hugs! *Ü*

Thelma appears to be quite a character and I love her already! Your card is very cute Barb!
I need to clean my house and get out my fall decorations also. However, at the moment, I am too lazy to do so!! *lol*
Have a great day and thanks for sharing your lovely card.
