Holidays always sneek up quickly on me and I don't get to make everything I want to before it comes and goes. Does that ever happen to you?
Well, I thought since today is March first, I would share my FIRST Easter creation with you.
It is simple but cute, cute cute.
Punches and dies make this little darling card. AND the Fringe Scissors too. The card was made with the scallop circle die, leaving it hand over the edge of the fold just a little bit so the card is hinged on top.
Hope you enjoyed this little cutie!!
See you again with another Easter Idea.

How has your week been so far? We FINALLY have a sunny, blue sky day. It is not warm, but the sunshine and the blue sky is so wonderful I DON"T CARE.
We were outside most of the day yesterday with our two horses. I was using the shedding curry brush to try to get some of their shedding winter hair off them. They have been rubbing on the trees, on the fences and constantly seem to be itchy. I know how it feels when I got for my haircut and a few pieces of hair get on my neck, so I knew I had to start getting that shedding hair off of them.
They enjoyed the "spa day treatment" as I call it when I groom them. They love the attention and the brushing feels so good to them. Oh My Goodness - I would stuff a large pillow with what I got off of them after just 10-15 minutes of brushing on each one.
Ok. I would like to show you the SFF SKETCH we are using this week starting today:

My card today is showing you that I am WISHING FOR SPRING. Flamingos are a tropical bird and I would love to be feeling the tropical heat and sunshine right now. We aren't as bad as New England is for sure, but I am sick of the cold wet weather we are having in February. My pasture is just one big mud pit for my horses. With all the MUD on them they pretty much look like dirty little homeless beggars!! Black mud up past their knees!!
Anyways, here is the sketch challenge for this week's SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY:
Thanks for visiting.
