Thinking Springtime!!!! And SWEET STUFF!!!!

 
A very happy Monday to YOU!! I hope you have had a magnificent weekend wherever you may be. I have heard that many of you are under bunches of snow and I am keeping my fingers crossed for sure! I am ready for Springtime and daffodils and flowers and green!!!
 
Today is my day to post over at Wild Orchid Crafts and I had Springtime and all its wonders on my mind for sure!!! It had been so very long since I had used a Bildmalarna image that this little girlie just made me smile! She is Mimosa - Guitar from the latest collection and that smile is priceless! She was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding some yellow Pearl Pen for her buttons. The base and all double matting is Bazzill, and the floral DP is from The Scrap Cake My Private Happiness Collection (and I have NO idea where it came from) and the sheet music DP is from the BoBunny Love Letter Collection. For the horizontal I used 1" Organza Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts. Other WOC products I used are the lovely little Daffodils (which I had never used but fell in love with) and the 1/4" Satin Ribbon to tie around the sheet music. Although Mimosa is holding a guitar (???) I used a fiddle charm to dangle from the ribbon as well as some pearl trim on two corners. On the opposite corners I used some beautiful corners from Noor! Design to cut out and emboss the diecuts. The number of this one is ART.NR. 6002/0136 and the WONDERFUL news is that all of Jolanda Bergman's lovely products for Joy! Crafts are going to be made available to wholesalers through Notions Marketing....even in the US!!!!! So tell all of your local scrapbooking stores, your favorite web shops, and your crafting shops to check them out!!! You can tell them to go to the brand Joy! Crafts and they will be able to find Jolanda's products right away!!
 
 
For the inside of my card I used the same DP and a companion fleur de lys diecut to anchor another organza bow. The number for this die is ART.NR. 6002/0134. And both of these dies are available now in the US at The Frantic Stamper. How exciting is that???? If you know of other shops in the US where these beauties can be found, please let me know in a comment!!! Thanks!!
 
I rarely participate in challenges because I have been so involved with challenges myself. But this time I would like to participate in the Bildmalarna Challenge where ANYTHING GOES.
 
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR SWEET STUFF!!!!
 
I meant to do this closer to the first of the year, but there is no time like the present for some yummy SWEET STUFF  for my FOLLOWERS! To thank you for your support and all of your many kindnesses over the years, I would like to give you all a chance for........

Gorgeous card and it makes me long for warmer weather. I am already tired of the winter coats, hats and gloves. We don't have any snow right now but our we are headed for a deep freeze. Hope you are staying nice and warm and thanks for the lovely inspiration!

Maryann said...

Oh Jacque, what a beautiful card here again, and it really reminds you of spring with all the happy colors to it. And we can sure ned a bit more of that here at least, as we´re burried in snow and ice here for the moment, and it´s so freezing cold every day. LAst night it was - 15 degreees and a few days ago, we hit -17, so we could really use some spring here soon too LOL.

Tanya said...

Gorgeous card, loving the new image and the soft colours really do make you think of spring but then I see out of the window and am reminded we are snowed in lol.
I entered your giveaway but then realised I should (snow prevailing) be on holiday when it is picked and will not be back until the 4th Feb.
