In the Garden

Oh... yesterday was sooooo beautiful!  The sun was shining, the temperature was perfect.  I even went for a bike ride with DH!  I'm thinking that today will be just as nice.  Not too hot, not too cold.  I love Spring!  It is my favorite time of the year.

Tomorrow is Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge, but I have two other cards I need to post, so I'm posting this a little early.  We have an inspiration photo for the Challenge this week.  You'd think that this would be a good place to insert that photo, wouldn't ya?  Ok... so here's my story.  It all started when I was just a wee little babe.  I wouldn't do that to ya :)  The real story is that I deleted it.  How boring is that?  Oooops!  I just keep making mistakes.  I'm gettin reeeeeeeal good at it too - lol!

I do have a card to show ya today.  At least I didn't delete that, thank goodness!
I've used the fab digi image from Prairie Fairy Designs "In the Garden".  Isn't it gorgeous?  You'll just have to believe me when I tell you that this card has inspiration photo written all over it - ha ha!  In case you need to see to believe, head on over to Fairy Fun Fridays to see what Roberta and the DT have cooked up using the (invisible) photo as inspiration...

It may look like I've placed the nesties cut oval on top of the dp, but actually, I cut the oval from the dp and placed the image behind it - like a picture frame.  The rim around the oval was achieved by cutting the oval shape as usual, but then I left the die in place and traced around the outside edge.  I carefully cut the thin "rim" and glued on top of the dp.  Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink was used around all edges.  Maybe you have an easier way to frame the oval.  I'm all ears!  Tell me your tips and tricks.  I only have one set of ovals though...

Challenges Entered:
Creative Card Crew - Vintage
Cute Card Thursday - Mono Mania

That's it for me today.  Thank you for stopping by and saying "Hi".

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
