Spring has arrived

Spring has definitely arrived here!  Although it seems like the weather is spring one day and winter the next at times.  The beautiful flowers are in bloom.  My climbing rose has already bloomed and been trimmed.  Butterflies are fluttering around my garden.  So, I have been inspired!

First, I added the month of April to my craft room calendar.  I chose several lovely images from Gecko Galz.  I used images from the Butterfly Kisses (find it here).  The background is an Authentique paper.  I matted each image in a deep brown so that they would pop off the background.  I added the iridescent green ribbon through the middle and then the images.  To finish I added some punched greenery and a few butterflies that I fussy cut from the Butterfly Kisses image sheet.

I have a friend who loves butterflies and her birthday is this week.  So I decided to play with another image from Butterfly Kisses images sheet.  The card front opens to reveal the birthday wish (just pull on the bow and a mini magnet releases to lift the paper).  The lovely rose cameo is from the Cameo image sheet from Gecko Galz.  I can hardly wait to give it to her!

I must have gotten stuck on butterflies this week.  The images from butterfly kisses are just so lovely!  I finished this quick little card with the leftover images from the image sheets.  Quick matting on pale pink, pop dotted on the card base, and add some flowers and done!  Perfect to have on hand to add to a quick gift.

There seem to be so many birthdays and occasions in the spring.  I think I will go spend a little more time with these images from Gecko Galz.  I can think of so many pretty cards to make to add to my card stash!

Enjoy your day!
