Hello again from sunny (NOT) Montana.  We have about half an inch of snow on the ground again, another spring storm.  Our senior class planned to take their senior trip (in my day called a "sneak day") last Thursday.  They headed north into Canada to spend the day at the mall in Edmonton, about an 8 hour trip (each way).  The storm was so bad that they only made it a couple of hours before they had to turn around because of the icy roads.  Talk about a bunch of unhappy kids!  Hope the school board will let them try again.

Meanwhile, I've been having lots of fun making cards.  Here are a few...

The first card, colored with pencils, is made with the ballerinas from A Day For Daisies.  I think I'll use them a lot.  The actual card is made with 2-sided paper and the front is cut in a scallop so that the ballerinas overlap the inside paper.  It has a simple sentiment inside.

The second card, also colored with pencils, is less than the best... I really wish I had made it less square.  There is way too much blank space on the left side.  All in all I'd have to say that I need to try this again, because I am not satisfied with it this way.

This last card is a one layer digital I made for my hubby's birthday.  I arranged 3 digital papers, a digital sentiment (just with it had been a .png, not a .jpeg) and the Bugaboo cowboy the way I wanted them.  After printing, I colored the cowboy with markers, added twine for his lariat and three tiny copper brads.  For his 65th birthday I think it made a good statement!

Hope this finds you enjoying better weather and enjoying life.  Happy SPRING to everyone and thanks for looking.
