I really wasn't sure what to make for this challenge, there are so many gorgeous cards already displayed on the thumbnails. Then, yesterday, I found these little butterflies and a large oval of the design paper on my desk - left over from a project I made in January! I decided to cut an oval frame from the design paper, stamp a sentiment in the middle and added the butterflies and some gems. The inside has been left blank for a message. I think the hardest part of this was to make sure that then sentiment was centred and then make sure I didn't get any inky fingerprints on it!! I do hope the Ladies like this clean, simple card.
I know that according to the calendar spring is here, but yesterday morning we woke up to a light dusting of snow. This winter there has been 91.3" of snow in Detroit, just 2" short of the record. I went out to clear the snow and play with my camera.
Here you can see the glow of sunrise on the rooftops opposite the house - such a pretty pink! And the tyre tracks left on our drive after Jonathan left for work.
We have square paving stones on the path to the front door, and I like the pattern you can see through the snow.
The sun is well up now - it's lost the pretty pink glow and is really shining - it makes the copper top on the pool house shine.
While I was pushing the snow off the drive, I noticed this pattern on the bricks of my neighbour's house. The sun was shining on our downstairs windows and reflecting on the wall. Super pattern!
This is me taking a break from shovelling, well in this case it was really more a case of pushing the snow off the drive. You can see the half finished drive behind the tree.
It was so cold that all the trees were covered with frost. I took lots of photos to try and capture the flaky frost - this is the best of the bunch! You can see the leaf buds there too - hopefully they'll be opening up soon.
Finally, one more of the pattern on the wall. The sun moves around quite quickly, so the pattern doesn't last long!
That's all for now. I'm off to the hairdresser this morning to get my hair done. See you soon.
