buds/blooms - TMTA

This is my ATC for this week's theme of buds/blooms. The background is a napkin and I did some watercolor blooms over the colorful background. I loved the quote because it always seems the earth is dead after a long cold winter but the flowers always come back to remind us it's not.

Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung around here and I hope the ice and snow doesn't come back until Winter. We have a beautiful flowerbed of daffodils that I though you might want to see.

I also took a picture of my erosion bundle. It is really looking weathered and I cannot wait to see what nature has done to it. You can learn more about erosion bundles here at this site:
And the last picture is goodies that I won from EK Sucess. I am on their consumer board and answer their surveys. Every once in a while they pull a few winner from those that answer the surveys. I was a lucky winner. I got some great punches and some stickers. Thank you EK Success, you made my day!

Spring banner

I made a Spring Banner at my friend, Claudia's house yesterday. I made it on her Cricut Expressions with the Storybook cartridge. Claudia donated the flowers and the lace egg and basket. She did the egg and basket on her embrodery machine. I think it turned out very pretty!

Saturday - a perfectly wonderful day

I went to altered book club and had lunch with the girls. Then I went to Michael's free jewelery make and take and made a necklace and braclet. Then DH and I saw Alice in Wonderland in 3D. It was a perfectly wonderful day.
