happy birthday fleur..

Woooo Hoooo for Monday's because that means you get to hop with the E.A.D Designs Team!
{it officially starts at 10:00 am EST}


You should have hopped over here from the Fabbie January Guest Designer, Lauren's blog:  


If not, you'll want to pop over to the starting blog which is EAD Designs!!!

Today I have a wonderfully sassy 'sweet marmalade' spring-y card....


I tell you, we could use a bit of springy sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest, it's been raining...alot...BUT I shouldn't complain because it could be SNOW....


Did you notice the fun green stitching?  The sentiment is from the EAD Designs Monster Birthday Stickerz set {thanks for the inspiration Amy C!}....love the font on that set!

I was inspired by the latest Waltzing Mouse sketch:


My Sassafras Entwined Bloom was perfect for the challenge...I did some subtle zig zag stitching in the lower left hand side of my center panel...The design just screamed for a sentiment in the lower right hand corner so that EAD Designs Happy Birthday was perfect for my sassy card.

Well, I'm the end of the hop...hope that you had fun!!!!  I wanted to give a big shout out to the fabbie Lauren, who is our January Guest Designer....she ROCKS!

Just a reminder of the E.A.D Designs January Steal:



Get yours TODAY!!!

  2. Sunny and happy - just what we all need for a Monday! If you want to trade weather forecasts let me know :>) Of course all the rain on top of the FEET of snow we already have on the ground might cause huge issues.

  29. We had spring weather over the weekend. Friday and Saturday got up to 76. Tonight we are expecting snow and ice with a love of -6. It is no wonder everyone is getting sick.
