From the Heart - March image

This month From the Heart tribled the fun, since freebie of the month included three sweet images and great sentiments to go with them: Easter Trio. In my card, I put 2 out of three, :=D

I colored images with ColorSofts and dig some old papers to go with, sentiment means something like "spring greetings"

I'd like to join some challenges:
From the Heart - Stamp of the month
Lacy Sunshine - springtime
Crafting from the Heart - AG
Paint your world - bunny
Digi Design - Spring is here

Easter bunny from Oddball

I got some fabulous news about a week ago. I got to be part of most amazing DT team: Oddball, they have two teams and I'll be DT on blog challenge, woooohoo, been smiling since I get to now this, :=D. Since I am in need for some Easter card, I decided to make one, I love cute bunnies (we have one, called Randy) and so I adore this Oddball's Bunny image No. 97. I combined that cutie with cloud image and added sentiment from FTH in the middle of the cloud.

I coloured with ColorSofts. First I tought I'll make a very CAS card, just the image and edge, but then I got my new KaiserGraft papers and had to use one.. Lovely bright pad.

The East Windin kevättyttö

Samalle arkille kuin aikaisemman postauksen korttien kuvat päätyi myös tämä The East Windin tyttö. Varsinainen kevätkuvahan tämä ei ole, mutta keväiset värit ja kevään juhliinhan sitä aina joutuu vähän siistimmin pukeutumaan - vaikka olisikin "farkkutyttö", :D

Tämän värittelin omilla ColorSofteillani, paperi on Magnolian ja lehdet sekä kukkaset kaivelin jemmapussukoista.

Muutamaan haasteeseen:
The East Wind - kevät
Penny's - suosikki koriste (die cuts)
Art by Miran - kaikki käy
Fussy and Fancy - tyttömäistä
QKR - kevät
Creative Craft Cottage - 3 samaa (leaves - pearls)
Crafts and Me - kukkia

Kraftille Aurora Wingsiä

Sain lainaan Prismacolorit - halusin verrata niitä omiin ColorSofteihini ja kyllähän ne Prismat paremmat ovat; pehmeämmät, huonompana ominaisuutena pidän sitä, että tarkkaa kohtaa on vaikea tehdä, koska kynät tylsyvät todella nopeasti - juurikin siitä syystä että ovat pehmeämmät. Printtailin kraftille, kun jostain syystä nyt olen tykästynyt värilliselle värittelemään...

Muutamaan haasteeseen tällä Aurora Wingsin kaunokaisella.

Aurora Wings - kaikki käy
Throw the Purple Haze - äidille (my mum loves poppies)
Fab'n Funky - kevät
The Paper Shelter - kevät
Cute Card Thursday - kevät
SLS - kaikki käy

Ja toisenkin kortin kasailin, myös tämä Aurora Wingsin kuva, taitaa olla tarkoitettu jouluksi, mutta minäpä teinkin pääsiäisversion, :)

Muutamaan haasteeseen hänetkin:

Aurora Wings FB - eläin
Artistic Inspirations - pääsiäinen
Aud Sentiment - 2 sanaa
Fan-Tastic Tuesday- neliö

Kaunista alkukevättä kaikille!

Four Green cards

Lately I've "found" my ColorSoft again, problem with these pens is, that I don't have a proper paper for them, I have few colored sheeds, but those are so expencive, that everytime I decide to use one, I have to make a most of that A4 space. So I print four images, and this time I had green paper...

With first card I'd like to join Aurora Wings challege, theme is "lucky color" and since I'm a Capricorn, green is supposed to be my lucky color.

With second card I'd like to join Sparkle and Glitter where the theme is Spring / Easter.

The third card I'd like to put into DP2 challenge, anything goes, with a animal twist. And a twist green is in Artistic Inspirations.

And with the last one I'd like to enter The Eastwind challenge, where the theme is "Doodle" and this cute image is this months freebie, brilliant, :). And with a luck theme I also partisipate Open-Minded Challenge. Hope this would also go with a "Welsh" theme at Through the purple Haze.

Sentiment is from the TLC and all the papers are Graphic 45. Lots of green in a one post, eh??

Can you believe it, it's already March and days are getting longer and it seems that spring will come eventually, :D. AND it's also time for a new awesome sketch challenge atSTAMPlorations. Hope you'll feel inspired (I was) by it and join us.

I must be dreaming summerdreams already, since this is what I made:

I found that blue/cold piece of paper and I so liked it and went with the gold theme and embossed sunflower andbutterflies and sentiment  - all from STAMPlorations, :D. I colored using my DI markers and then just added few golden pearls. Go on and take a look what other DT's have done - awesome ladies, and we have tree QDT's also: AshaSandie andMilla.


Freebie, :)

My older (12 years) daughter likes magna and pullip dolls, and she loves to draw, so take a look what she made for her mum:

So, if you would like to create from the image, please do, :), and I know my daughter (and I) would be thrilled to see what you have made...

Using ColorSofts and Copics to color, added some sparkle to the letters and in the middle of the flowers.
