"Spring Has Sprung" Daisy

Pin It

Spring has sprung over at The Paper Players and that's what this card reminds me of...Spring!  I love the simplicity of this card. What do you think?

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Yellow and Yellow/Orange
Free Digital Image from Birds Cards
Spectrum Noir Markers
Studio G Clear Stamps "Thanks"
Yellow/Orange Pigment Ink
Yellow/Gold Rhinestones, 2 Large

I have been playing around with the Spectrum Noir Markers (they are like Copics (alcohol based), but a little less expensive) and the Sugarloaf Whispers Strokes Markers (water-based) and just having a good time. It can become very addicting. I figure it's just another avenue for my creativity. There's always room to expand...right?

Yesterday I started to clean up a small area in front of my washer and dryer...well, that turned into all day! In fact, I still have things to sort through today...a lot of socks for one...hahaha (you know the ones I'm talking about, you do a load of wash and end up with a lonely sock, so you put it to the side hoping you'll find the mate...well, the lonely sock pile kept growing...and growing...and growing...I'm working on the white socks today...(I did the colored ones last night....still have some missing socks though. Maybe it's just time to throw them out!...oh, my son would be so proud (I hate throwing anything away))) Wish me luck!
