Dream Big



If you're going to dream, why not dream big? That's what this sweet little doggy on today's share is doing. This wonderful card was made by designer Kren Kurts, using the "Darling Doggies" set. Kren used such a wonderful mix of colors and textures on this. The sentiment looks perfect set inside the doggy's little dream bubble, and don't you love how she used the "out of the box" technique on that part of the image so that it stands out? Of course, seeing that doggy enjoying his nap makes me long for one of my own. Maybe later! ;-)

Somebunny Loves You!



We all want to know that we're loved. What better way to remind someone that they most definitely are than with a super cute card like this one? Designer Donna Hanley combined an image and one of the printable papers from the "Pocket Pal Bunny" set to create this little sweetie. The pink accents are so pretty with all of the green in the background and image, and the heart-shaped sentiment piece is just precious. You can't help but say, "Awwwww," when you see this, can you? I sure can't! :-)

Hello Spring!



Although the weather may not agree, Spring is almost here! It's such a wonderful time of year that I know we all look forward to. Green grass, flowers blooming, birds nesting, and wildlife emerging from their Winter sleeps -- what's not to love about that?

For today's share, we have a beautiful card by designer Carol Longacre. Carol used the bunny image from the "Hello Spring" set to create this. The colors and patterns on this, not to mention that gorgeous lace, are so fresh and lovely, just like the start of Spring. Soon friends...soon! :-)

Are We There Yet?



Do you travel often? Though I daydream about it often, I haven't had the opportunity to travel much in the 23 years since I became a mother. But today, even as you read this, I am embarking on a very special trip. I am off to Texas to meet my next younger sister, who I haven't seen in 32 years! We were separated by adoption as children, and although we reconnected a couple of years ago -- through Facebook of all things -- the means to travel to physically reunite just haven't been there. But now, well, my sister is facing a very tough challenge in her life, so I had to find a way. In December she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although she has a good prognosis for healing, she also has a long and difficult year of treatment in front of her. So in addition to reuniting with her, this trip will enable me to provide her with some much-needed support. I'm feeling very blessed to get to go, and to be able to support her in the way a sister should.

Because this trip is nearly the only thing on my mind at the moment, I thought it especially appropriate to share this darling card by designer Jerusha Borden today. She used the "Are We There Yet" set to make this. I love the fun colors and shapes she used, and how beautifully the airplane image stands out against the green matte. Of course, the sentiment totally sums up how I'm feeling -- "Are we there yet?" ;-)

Just a quick note that, although I will be away from home for a bit, I've scheduled posts here for the days to come, so there will still be fresh inspiration for you here each day. However, I may not be able to check email, so if you send a question or comment, please be patient, and I will respond as soon as I'm home again and able. Thanks so much, and have a wonderful week!

Challenge Inspiration -- Week 2



Happy Monday! It's week 2 of our March Digi of the Month Challenge, and today we have some inspiration for our challenge players by designer Denise Goeldner. This month's featured set -- "Uneggspected" -- includes two images, and Denise used the one of the patient hen waiting for her egg to hatch. The Spring-colored papers and the little jewel accents make this such a festive card! You just know that the hatching of the egg is something to look forward to, egg-spected or un-egg-spected! ;-)
