I love the spring!

I love the spring. The smell in the air outdoors is just awesome. Fresh, clean.....New! Love it! I love all the spring flowers too. 
I just bought this bunch of daffodils last night and all morning I have had spring envy from their delicate scent.
I have been working on items for a craft fair so I will be posting many spring themed crafts that I am making. If you see something that you like, I will also be selling them on Etsy. My shop is called JustSayinCards. Nothing for sale yet, but I will let you know as soon as it is open!
I have an addition for today...I went to my friend Sandra's house today to see her new room of Heaven. It is really beautiful. She put a lot of work into it and now that her scrapbooking things are back in the room, it really looks awesome. (I am sooo jealous!)
AND....while I was drooling over her room, she showed me a card that she was working on which was very pretty. It was a criss cross card. I have never made one before, so when I got home....I tried it out. This is what I came up with...
I had a lot of fun making this card. I love that it is a flat card that you have to pull the inside out to read it. I used my AMuse Studio butterfly dies, papertrey ink stamps, burlap ribbon, and cardstock from Carta Bella.
Hope that you like it! Thank you Sandra, for the inspiration!

Husband's Valentine

This is a quick card I made for my husband today. I really like the cards with the sheet music that have been out lately and I figured using my Papertrey ink set that had "You are the beat of my heart" would be fitting for the sheet music heart. Most of my card is made with the Stampin up valentine paper. I just got it last week and I have been dying to use it! I hope you like it!
