Happy Spring

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great week – the weekend is almost here! A couple weeks ago I shared that I’m guest designing for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge this month. We’re being sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps so be sure to join The Outlawz so you can join in the fun! The Twisted Thursday challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist. Today’s challenge is being hosted by Janet and the twist is ‘Hoodie-Hoo.’ It was explained to me that on this winter day (usually celebrated on the 20th) people go out at noon, wave their hands over their heads, and chant “Hoodie-Hoo.” It’s a day to chase away Winter blues and bring in Spring. After all, everyone in the northern hemisphere is sick and tired of Winter at this point and a little crazy being cooped up inside all winter and not seeing the sun. So this one is wide open to interpretation and we can’t wait to see what you create!

I created a ‘Happy Spring’ card featuring the adorable Bugaboo Birdhouses digital image from my stash. I adhered a floral print paper to the front of the card base and then created a green print panel that I layered on foam and adhered to the left side of the floral print.


I colored the image, trimmed it and adhered it to the green panel. I affixed tiny iridescent gemstones to the center of each flower and a simple red bow at the top. I adhered the Spring definition (created on the computer) on a vertical tab and a few larger gemstones on the right side.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the papers used on the front and a layered computer-generated sentiment.


And one more look… I so love how this turned out and it sure makes me ready for Spring! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. How sweet your little birdhouse is, Leslie. It is extra cheerful with the use of primary colors for pop and that bright red bow. Thanks for being our guest designer over at Twisted Thursday. Hope you will join us again soon!
