Crafting by Designs Blog Skip - Your Favorite Season

Hello blogland! 
At long last, we've kicked off our new home for Crafting by Designs and are doing a little blog skip to share our favorite seasons with you.  You should have come here from the super talented Cindy Leek's blog Paper Pads and Pictures - don't you just love her work?

Spring is my favorite season - everything is waking up and turning green again, flowers, birds, warm breezes thru the windows....so here's a few of my favorite cards for spring:

 
This CAS card was made using a Unity Stamp butterfly and StampersBest sentiment, white embossing powder and some Distress Ink blocking.
 
 

I just love when my strawberries start blooming - this little card was made using a StampersBest stamp and colored with some Copic markers.
 

Spring flowers...I can almost smell them!  These were made using white embossing powder then coloring them with some copics.
 
 


And last but not least, little Tilda and some spring butterflies colored with Copics.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed a few of my projects from my favorite season of spring.  Your next stop on the hop is Julia Vasquez over at Paper and Scraps Creations by Julia.  In case you get lost along the way, here's the whole line up - be sure to stop by and see everyone's creations from their favorite season.

I'm with YOU!! I would LOVE for us to be going into SPRING right now, versus this dreaded cold weather.

On the upside I'm looking forward to a break when I go out to visit Brian and Meg, sometime in January or February!! Hopefully I'll be away during the coldest parts of the winter!

Love the NEW blog and all the designers are really pretty...great work!!

Congrat! and Best Wishes for lots of success!
