HEARTFELT CREATIONS - APRIL 4, 2012

Happy Spring!  Here in Northern Indiana we have had beautiful weather.  I have been working in my flower beds and my kitty, Muffin, has been helping me.  The birds are busy making nests and Muffin keeps a close eye on the birds.   I just love the feeling of new beginnings and new life in Spring!

The stamp set I used to create the first two cards, HCPC 3385 - Spring Birdies and Roses PreCut Set, is being retired at the end of April.  It is a beautiful set to make Spring cards with, so make sure you purchase yours before it is gone for good!

BIRDIE WITH BABIES CARD

I colored the image with Copics and I added Bark Elements to the nest.

I am entering my Blue Jay Card this week in Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday #163 - Birthday Card Challenge.

For my last card I used HCPC - Outside My Window PreCut Set and I used really bright colored Copics to create a Spring looking scene.  I am entering this card this week in Ribbon Carousel's Challenge RCC47-Spring is in the Air.
PINK ENCOURAGEMENT CARD

I added Peony Pink Flower Soft to a few flowers in the forefront to give the scene a more dimensional look.
