Is it Spring? Is Easter really coming?

Well the calendar says Spring had sprung and I do see tulip and daffodil foliage popping out of the ground all around my yard, the birds are singing but.....where are the warmer temps?  I'm still cold and not going to put my Winter clothes away just yet.  It IS raining so that IS typical of Spring weather.   I can't wait for those tulips to bloom...soo refreshing and soo needed to boost the spirits with all the cold weather.  I know the kids are looking forward to playing outside often.  Adoree especially is happy when she is running free!  So has Spring arrived in your neck of the woods or is it a different season for you?  My Aussie pals...hope you guys are enjoying great Fall temps!

Well I think Spring is on the minds of my design team.  I'd love to share two projects using my 3-D butterflies file.  This file has been around since May of 2009 and yet time and time again it flys into many a project.  Time and time guys amaze me with the creative way you use this file.  I have a feeling this one will never go out of style.  

First up we have Shelly M's elegant card/tag using my Card Base 6 file.  It is currently only available through my quarterly membership club.  I love how she used one of my 3-D butterflies to hold the memorabilia decorations on her stunning card.  I don't know why but it seem I'm always gravitating towards pink and completely forget about blue.  I love it though..not to self...use blue more!  You've gotta click on the picture to make it larger so you can read the sentiment Shelly used.  It is great! 

Below is a photo of the Card Base 6 Shelly used for her wonderful project.  It's amazing how different one file can look depending on what paper and embellishments you used.

If you look at previous posts you can see how I decorated the card in the preview.  Remember this file is only available through my Quarterly Membership.  It's a great little file as it's a card that resembles a tag.  So if you like this hurry on over and purchase my membership here.  It's an amzing deal as you get at least 20 files for only $10.00.  If you'd like to see what I have posted to the membership thus far..please look at the slide show to the right of this blog. 

Next up CDT member Lisa was in a butterfly mood too.  She gave the butterfly a makeover by turning it into an easel card.  You must check it out below.  I just love her card and embossed envy.  The glitter and papers she used is just perfect..don't ya think!  Oh and the butterflies fold flat for wonderful would it be to have these flutter into your mailbox! 

If you'd like to try your hand at playing with my 3-D butterflies please click on the words above the preview to purchase.

Well it can't be Spring without Easter.  So Sue is all about getting her grandson's Easter bucket ready.  That's right I said bucket.  Sue found soo many things she wanted to share with her grandson that she had to buy a bucket instead of a basket for him!  Hmmm could she be spoiling him?!  Well if you saw how cute he'd spoil him too!  Sue used two of my files from membership to add to his bucket:  Build a Bunny and Curly Carrot Box.

Didn't Sue do a great job with my Easter files?  I love her whimsical bunny..the inking, glitter and one pink toe on each foot is a great touch.  Oh and shhhh don't tell Clay but Sue stuffed paper towels into the bottom of that carrot box so she didn't have to buy more tic tacs!  Gee you know that's pretty practical...after Clay gets done eating Sue can grab that paper towel to clean up his hands and face.  Brilliant thinking there Sue! 
Below you can see the original files so you can see how Sue put her own special twist on them.

Remember you can only get these two files through my membership club so why not head on over and purchase today before Easter arrives!  Click here to purchase.  CDT member Kelly also put these files to use in fact she cut the bunny in my preview but Adoree is begging me to color with her so I'll think I'll do that now.  I promise I'll share Kelly's creations soon!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Shelly, you are SO sweet to have my creations on your blog! :) You KNOW how much I LOVE your designs and love, love, LOVE your membership club!

Shelly M and Lisa also did a super fantastic job with your files. I adore them both!

It's rainy and cool here today. I NEED warmer weather and I NEED sunshine. It's been SO dreary and you said "is it SPRING"? LOL
