(this card uses the flower post/leaves from Can ya dig it-details below. What a cut card to mass produce huh? Bow Farme Cuttlebug folders-here)

Well it’s Wednesday-the week is half over (YEAH!!).

We got horrible thunder and lightning storm last night, with a down pouring of rain. The whole house SHOOK! Pretty freaky.  I hate thunder and lightning. I use to get really scared, but grew out of that. This storm was a little creepy.

My grandmother was always petrified of thunder/lightning, to the point she would close ALL the blinds, and make us hide under the kitchen table, if a storm hit. We weren’t aloud near the sink, tub or window’s.

If it was going to rain, she would not leave the house. It was a very crippling fear for her, and every-time it rains I think of her.

I was hoping the term APRIL SHOWERS WILL BRING MAY FLOWERS-will be brought by that storm. I am SOOOO ready for spring. I can’t look at one more winter image. I need TULIPS, and BUTTERFLIES again.

As for yesterday’s post-Bee brought to my attention that the flower’s were Lily’s! Thanks Bee! DUH!! I had no idea. As you can tell I don’t know my flower’s! LOL! I will say I still like them as Daffodil’s 😀 and think they served the purpose I wanted them to. I like taking creative liberty 😀 where I can.

My mojo has found it’s way back home 😀 When it’s gone-it’s gone, but it comes back with a vengeance. Since it’s return, I am working on SO MANY insane project’s I can’t wait to be able to share them.

Well for today’s post I have some more yummies to share with the NEW!MFT Release 😀 This release is a smaller one, so better for the wallet. There are only 2 sets this month-Happy Mother’s Day and the one I am sharing today-Can ya dig it! I really LOVE this set. Party/Release details provided below.

I tried to use image’s I thought other people may over look, so I hope you like what I have to share.

Ever since making THIS card, I LOVED having my main image stamped on patterned paper

I used the Memory Box paper-Sprout Collection, for this card. The barrow is paper pieced, and is 3D.  The flower’s are another punch a bunch-punch. Many of you inquired about those, and I an happy to say that I believe All that Scraps will soon be carrying them!! I will keep you posted 😀 There are also some awesome accessories for these as well-YEAH!! Stay tuned OK!

OK so the little flowers, punched from patterned paper, wth liquid pearls in the centers. ( I made the smae flower for the pot card above) The leaves are the bridal confetti, cut apart and colored.

The bird is pieced on an acetate tag.

I just loved all the little seed packets so I used  them for this. I framed them in an embossed rectangle-using my nestabilities. I like the simple embossed edge (used birds and swirls folder), with the scallops.  Inside the card is a gift certificate to a local greenery. Just a quick card. I love the clean and simple look.

I think its easy to find what suits you by going to a card shop, and browsing. WHAT catches your eye immediately? Is it the layered/embossed cards, of the insanely simple/colorful ones?

I try to make things that I would buy from a store. Make sense?

Anyway I hope you will join me and the MFT team for some chatter tonight!

Well today is another peek with Queenie from C.C. Designs. I need to make something using her. So I hope to be back a little later.

Till then, I hope you enjoy the day. It sort of does feel like spring today here in New Hampshire 😀
