My daffodils are blooming now and the Tulips will be blooming shortly.  I found a fun video of some Daffodil and Tulips growing fields in Washington.

Delicate Blossoms

Hello and thank you all for stopping by.  We have had three days in a row of sun. Of course the rain is not far off again.  I am busy getting my garden boxes ready for Spring.

I sponged the clouds using a cloud mask.  For the hummingbird I really went all out, I used watercolor pencils, then coated the bird  with Sakura 3D crystal lacquer and sprinkled on glitter.  I added a little mounting tape behind for dimension.

Butterfly in Motion

Greetings and I hope you are all well.  I saw a video on the Poppy Stamps website where Dave Brethauer used gold thread to create a moving butterfly.  I did not have double stick paper so I used wonder tape instead and the string sort of moved on my finished design. But the butterfly will spin around when the card is upright.

PS - I watched a video the other day on a product that cleans shower doors (the water spots and soap scum) , fiberglass etc.  It is called Amaz (Amazon ) As soon as it arrived I tried it on my shower doors, you use a Scotch Brite Dobie  cleaning pad (or something similar) which I got wet, scooped on a little of the paste and rubbed it on the shower doors.  Then you wait a minute or so and use a clean rag to wipe off.  Oh my gosh, the shower doors look like new and I even used it on a hard water stain on the fiberglass tub which removed the stain.

Swirl Birthday Design

Wow I am really pulling out the hardly ever used dies.  I have had the Heartfelt Creations Layered Elegant Swirl die for years.  But I was thinking why not use it on the sides of a card design.  Once again, that Ultrafine Tip Applicator Bottle filled with glue really came in handy attaching the Elegant Swirl die cut.  The flowers are coated with the Nuvo Collection Aqua Shimmer - Glitter pen which I am just loving the finished results.  Yes, I know I am almost gushing over that glitter pen.
