Oh So Spring

Hello my friends! It's still cold in central California...where the forecast for the rest of the week is: *singing* It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring... ugh! I am just itching for Spring when the weather is warm enough to be outside, but also not too hot to be outside!

Yesterday I went shopping to buy some exercise clothes. I haven't been shopping in ages - well, obviously I HAVE been shopping for crafts (it's one of the basic 'food' groups isn't it?) as well as grocery shopping - but not for clothes. I've put on waaaaaay too many pounds and my cholesterol needs checking...yuck! So... now I have some spiffy new duds to work out in. Maybe when I wear them it will make me run faster and jump higher. Oh wait. That's PF Flyers. What do you mean you don't remember PF Flyers. I loved my PF Flyers. They made me run faster and jump higher. Really! LOL! Oh my goodness. You will never believe this... I just searched for PF Flyers and this is what I found: Here See? I was telling the truth hee hee

It's time for a new Fairy Fun Friday Challenge and we'd like to see your Spring projects! Here's my sweet 'Oh So Spring' card using the adorable digi Fairy Love by Prairie Fairy Designs:

I am totally in LOVE with this digi!!! I've colored it with my fave copics: E35 E34 YR21 YR20; E11 E21 E00 R20; R85 R83 R81; BG05 BG02 BG01; G28 G24 G21 G20. The oh so sparkly wings were created by coloring them in with my Quickie Glue Pen and giving them a generous dusting of Glamour Dust.

DP is a digi paper pack by Aimee Asher. I love using digi papers cuz you can print out as much as you need, over and over and over! I actually lightened the paper before I printed though cuz I wanted a softer look. It's just amazing how much you can do with computers... I think we have a love/hate relationship with them lol!

Although I've covered the roses in the image with Prima mini roses, the actual roses are very pretty. You can just color them and it looks fabulous!

I've used another of Chelsea's sketches - this time from CLP Sketch Challenge #35. I've rotated the sketch because it worked better for me! Also, I am early for Challenge #35... I will be reminding you again next week when the new challenge begins. For now, you can still enter CLP Challenge #34 : )

Your fairy card is gorgeous! I love that really soft pink that you went with...and the way you colored the blue sky behind your adorable fairies. The whole card looks so feminine without being "girly". And that beautiful lace you added to it is the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing.
