April Blog Challenge - Spring Snows!!
 
http://www.smilies.4-user.de/include...wetter_262.gif

Spring means............flowers!!! And..........snow!!! It really is a crazy time of year! So my challenge is to make a card that combines flowers (paper flowers, images, etc) with some sort of snow (image, bling, flower soft, etc).

Hmmm...I think I know what GKD stamp I will use...not sure of the background...but...I've got a few days to figure it out!

Excited about seeing how this theme will work... ;)

I'll have to put on my thinking cap for this one!! ;)

It did snow in MN yesterday...but I can't imagine thinking snow in OK with 70 temps!


By the end of April you will be well into summer! :D

Um, word. This is a completely foreign concept to this Southern girl. ;) what kind of card would be good for this?

pcousins13 04-06-2013 09:45 AM

Well...this challenge could not have been posted at a better time. As I am sitting here in Spring (or so the calendar says ;)) the snow is falling outside. Looks like the man with the white beard should be visiting soon...and I don't mean Willie Nelson...instead of flowers blooming.

I don't know how I am going to go about this challenge...but I am thinking of a couple of ideas right at this moment. Perhaps later I can sneak down to the craft room and try out a few ideas.

edith199 04-06-2013 09:53 AM

I'm thinking... snow covered ground with a tulip or daffodil poking through :D

mollymoo951 04-06-2013 10:44 AM

I think I got this one...card AND a page. :wink:

Have to go look & see on the page tho. :wink:

mrslaird 04-06-2013 12:23 PM

Lol. I got nothing. The last time I saw snow was dec 2009. ;)

ohmypaper! 04-06-2013 05:02 PM

In my head I can visualize a cute card....but .....I don't have an image that pops to mind. I will figure something out. Actually......now that I am giving it more...thought...I think I have a sentiment I just might build this card around......

kramomma 04-10-2013 03:32 AM

Yesterday we had spring rain...woke this morning to 2" of snow...

I know exactly what Spring Snows are in my life...krapoppa took a picture of his garden with no snow last night...he plans to take another picture today with snow!


Scraping the card this morning was not a fun event...he has wood projects in the garage that he is varnishing so he hasn't been able to park the car in the garage for the last 2 weeks...it was fine until today! :roll:

LuvLee 04-10-2013 03:04 PM

I'm not sure what image(s) I'm actually using yet.....but here's a photo for your inspiration.....I took this just this morning...we got 14" of new snow yesterday!

Scraperwannabe 04-10-2013 03:15 PM

I'm not seeing the flowers in your photo! ;) ;) ;)

kramomma 04-10-2013 03:54 PM

Koleesa attempted to take a picture for me to use for a card...

The SD card was not in the camera...:roll:


Hopefully she finally got one that will work...:rolleyes:

Pink Snuggles continues to attempt to get a Spring Snow picture for me...she didn't learn from yesterday to check that the SD card is in the camera and not in the computer before you take the pictures! :p

Going to share a photo that Red Bear took. He has enjoyed taking these photos for me. I did choose a few to use on cards but this one when put into a wallet size would not show the beauty.

Maybe it won't show the beauty on here either since it is a small size image! The trees are no longer white but the birds are still here.

kramomma 04-13-2013 04:59 AM

Have 3 cards made for this challenge...been fun...

Scraperwannabe 04-13-2013 05:58 AM

You rock, Kramomma!

LuvLee 04-18-2013 10:27 AM

Yes! The upcoming VSN theme....we need a couple more hostesses if anyone wants! ;)

imthenoni 04-23-2013 02:46 PM

I forgot how to find the thread - can be a goof that way. Instead of losing it again, I'm posting. I'm not sure I'll be able to put something together between now and the end of the month but I still want to keep up.

You ladies have some really pretty inspirational pics on here.
