Spring is in the Air


Hi there thanks for coming by today, I hope you had a great Easter I did, we went to church and then just hung out at my son's and had Prime Rib and lots of goodies. There is nothing better than quality time with the family, we all did get a good shock when we had a pretty good earthquake here in AZ., we were use to them in CA but not here.

This little card today is called a Criss Cross card and you can find instructions here. Tilda with 3 flowers is from the new Hoppy Easter collection and you can get her from Magnolia-licious, just click on the link on my side bar. The little Tilda on the note part of the card is Sparkling Tilda from the So Jolly So Snowy collection. Both images are colored with copics and I have added Stickles to the flowers, wings and halo for a little bling. Edges are distressed with Tim Holtz walnut stain. The papers were just some I had in my stash I think I picked them up at Hobby Lobby. The Chandelier Glass Garland is from Magnolia-licious also.



I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Just Magnolia Fold it
Papertake weekly anything goes
All that Scraps Spring bling
Simon Says Stamp distressing
Roses on Paper Layering

Have a great day !
Hugs,
