April Cards

Tuesday Morning Sketches has this sketch this week:

 The theme is "Think of Spring"  Well around here Spring is popping up everywhere, and it's my very favorite season!  So thinking of spring is so easy!
This card probably took me longer than any I've ever made...Note to self: Glue buttons for a button frame, don't sew them, unless you have all day!

I also made this "Thank You" using the same sketch. 

Thank You Inside :)
I am entering these in the following challenges:
Trimmies Craft Challenge-Inspiration Picture- (Bottom card) I was inspired by the lovely green at the bottom & the blue mountains in the distance with the water & sky...tried to recreate a bit of it with misting.
Crazy4challenges-Blue & White plus another color (bottom card)
The Sisterhood Of Crafters -Recycle Challenge (Top Card) The lace on the front
Do You Stack Up- Glitter/Bling- Bottom card- (It's hard to see but the the blue & green background (behind the tree) is glimmer misted, the card has glittery stripes and I colored some of the flowers with a glitter pen)


  1. Both cards are fabulous! I LOVE the buttons. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

  2. Lovely cards...I really love the button border on the first one! Thank you for playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

  3. Wow - that button frame sure turned out beautifully =) Gorgeous use of the recycled lace! Thanks for playing along with The Sisterhood of Crafters for our Recycle challenge!

  4. Absolutely beautiful! The button frame is fabulous (and I'm sure a TON OF WORK) and that recycle lace is beautiful! Thanks so much for joining us at The Sisterhood ‘RECYCLE, REUSE, RENEW’ challenge and please come back again soon!

  5. These both came out great. Think the sewn buttons look amazing, but can't imagine how long it took. Beautifully done. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week.

  6. Both cards are fabulous. I would've used glue dots, I couldn't sit and sew!! Great job!! Thanks for joining us this past week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I hope you'll play along this week.

  7. Great project, thank you for joining us at CRAFT Challenge this week and good luck! Love how you have used my inspiration picture to inspire you for this project. Don't forget to check back with us again on Thursday for our new challenge and to check if you have won or made our Top3.
