Spring Has Arrived

That’s right, it’s spring . . . well at least on the calendar!! This is the time of year where we do get some lovely sunshine and warmer days, letting us know we are past most of the winter, and warmer days are coming. Where I live we will still get some more snow, but I do love those warmer days we are treated to. My card today has a real spring feel to it with butterflies and flowers.

CASE the Catty

Some days it is really easy to create, while others seem to stump your creativity. I don’t know why or how this happens, but we all seem to experience it from time to time. I’m grateful on the days that I go to my craft studio and the ideas just flow like butter melting on hot toast! On days that have no toast, I call upon one of the many ways to jump start creativity.

Rhino Meets Brusho

Have you played with Brusho Crystals? These are watercolour ink crystals, and they are so much fun to play with. You can sprinkle them directly on water-washed paper, or use them with an Aqua Painter to colour an image you have stamped. They are bright and fun and every time you use them you can create something different and unique. I had made a number of background pieces with my Brusho Crystals, and today my card uses one of those.
