I spent part of my day working on the computer, taking a class on line about fixing photo's in Adobe Photo shop. Hopefully by the time the course is over, there will be an improvement in the photo's I display on my blog. We can not always take perfect pictures, but according to the teacher of this class, we cn manipulate them with the computer. I guess we'll see!
Tonight's post is dedicated to our monthly swap. The theme for our swap cards for Marchwas SPRING. We have 4 very different cards, just like spring can be very different depending on where you live. The first card is Brenda's. Brenda used her Big Shot and the flower embosslit to create the flowers and leaves of spring. She used cheery, fibrant colors, then inked the card stock and added a pearl cabochon center. Her inking made the card stock look like the velvet of petunia or pansy petals. She did a nice job with this card. I am thinking of you tonight, as I post your card.
Christina's card is second. It explodes with color, so vibrant and alive. The bold Summer Sun card stock, the Kiwi Kiss ribbon and the blue of the card, reflect how spring bursts onto the earth and color is quickly everywhere. She used her punches to create the flowers and added green rhinestones for the flower centers. This is a beautiful card, thanks Christina for sharing.
Natalie's card is third. Natalie used Barely Banana for her card base along with blue and yellow designer paper to add so much to this card. She paid a lot of attention to her layout and her focal point was her flowers, which look like Black-eyed Susan's. This card is as delicate and soft as a warm spring day. She also used Thinking of You as her theme. Great card Natalie, you used my favorite colors, and the paper oh so nice.
I posted my card already. But so you can see how different they all were, I am posting it again. We were challenged by Stampin'Up! to use orange for spring. So my card used Tangerine Tango. We have so many beautiful colors that it is sometimes hard to choose. This card said spring to me with the oranges, pinks, and a little yellow,blue and green. Hope you enjoy all the cards. Well done everyone.
I think I must have been ready for an April Fool's joke, in my title I typed Swap cards for April, as I did in the first sentence, before I realized what I had done and changed it to March. LOL!
