'ello monday

if you are here for the SPRING NOOK DT HOP March 23-28th, please scroll down to DT HOP post to start the DT hop and leave comments for your chance to win $200 in prizes.

good morning everyone. today over at the 'Nook, in the CARDS FORUM,
we have posted a new monday challenge. we hope you'll stop by to see the challenge inspiration, dt cards, challenge deets/prize and post YOUR cards for the challenge.

here are the cards i created for the new challenge

(cards created using the new APRIL 'Nook Kit filled with gorgeous Crate Paper Story teller)

'brand new' card

(that's what i think of when i think of 'spring' and am putting all kinds of cute bunnies and birdies inside on the sentiment mat)

(pop over to the CARDS FORUM to see the inspiration room. for my card, i was inspired by the squares, flowers and the pop of red that catches your eye in the flower)

see the white flower buttons?

i used the "negative" from die-cutting those button flowers to create the card in this post
so don't throw away those negatives, they can really create fun new cards

happy 13th birthday card

and a more liberal interpretation created with APRIL GRAB BAG KIT filled with Crate Paper Pretty Party....sigh, love.

(this card was inspired by squares and pattern on pattern and that gorgeous flower)

i love the mini clothespins that come in the APRIL kit and sentiment stickers in the APRIL grab bag, so fun

we hope you'll come visit and see the room inspiration these cards were inspired from and the dt inspiration.

happy creating♥
