Where 'O Where...

Spring has really been on my mind lately..and I thought it was coming soon. The grass was peeking through in large spots in our yard, but then... another storm hit us last night! We had several inches of snow again and a late start to school! ICK! I really need to get out, get some fresh warm air, hear the birds, and feel the sun on me! I tell ya, the winters here are sooo very long. Maybe I need to get some tanning sessions or something. ha I'm so jealous of all of you who are sweating right now! :) One thing I do have to look forward to is that my mom is coming to visit me SOON! I miss her so much...can't wait! I just hope the weather cooperates for her to get here!

So, with me longing to get outside, I can't help but make more of these little birdhouse cards and tons of butterfly things! I'm so addicted to anything with butterflies on it lately! This little birdhouse card was made with the card kit from Right at Home. I think there are still a few kits left, if I'm not mistaken. Papers are the new Scenic Route "Providence" line.And below: the butterfly card was created for this month's contest over at Scenic Route's website! I got a wild hair to enter a contest. hehe What I did was use the negative of the butterfly chipboard and painted it white and stitched with red stitching along the edges. I backed it with some more of the new Scenic Route "Providence" papers and added a Scenic Route sentiment.

I'm not sure if they'll like the "shabbiness" of it..but I guess we'll see! :) Thanks for stopping by today. I'm finally on the mend and feeling creative once again. When the virus hit me last week, my creativity went right out the door, I didn't think I was going to feel like scrapping ever again. lol Don't forget to check out my new card kit which will be revealed in 2 weeks at CMK! You must be a member to get a kit each month (visit the link for more info). I think you are going to LOVE these! Lisa put together the first kit for me and it's so much FUN!
