It seems like we have been waiting a terribly long time for Spring so making a few Spring cards might just fill in the gaps....for a while! I saw a Robin last week (which is a major event here in the frozen north) so the promise of Spring is in the air. For to-day's card I used the new release Dolls of the World - Holland. There is a lot of great images in that set...tulips being one of them and I couldn't resist. The lattice window is made with a nestability and some quilling paper for the actual lattice (since I am too much of a lazy cow to cut the strips out individually). The windmill was stamped in black, coloured with prisma pencils and a red stardust pen then cut out. A second set of blades is cut out and mounted on the first ones with foam dots. Flower soft is glued at the bottom to give it some dimension. Several tulips were stamped, coloured with stardust pens and cut out. The ones at the front are mounted with foam dots to give it a 3-D effect. The greeting was stamped on white, punched with a scallop edge punch and mounted using foam dots. We can only hope that a Spring project like this one will hold us over until the real thing arrives. Personally I think that rotten little Groundhog lied!

Well, this is me, Raychel! I guess you could say I've been around crafting my whole life, and have jumped from craft to craft (making dreamcatchers, knitting, stitching stockings...you get the point). My biggest thing over the last 6 years or so has been scrapbooking - and in a big way! I'm slowly getting there with stamping...when I have to (ehem...Mom). But, besides crafting, some more about me is that I graduated teacher's college last year and have been on the hunt for educational employment ever since! I'm also an avid animal lover...if you couldn't tell by the contest video where I used Kiki to pick the winner, and in my bio pic with Lilo! They keep me sane...somewhat...when I'm not trying to get her out from under my bed...hmm...yeah :)
Just as a sidenote...the Canadian Chinchilla Rescue (a place I am rather close with and adopted a chin from...) helps to rehome unwanted or surrendered chinchillas in the GTA. They entered in the Pepsi Refresh Challenge, and if they get in the Top 3 they will be given $10,000 to expand the foster program to help rehome more chins (there are currently at least 15 on a waiting list). How the money will be used is broken down on the page. By clicking on this link, please vote for them once, twice, or daily up until April 30th...any vote will help! Please pass it along, too! Thanks, bloggers! I love you! Even small furry critters deserve a fantastic furever home :)
