How is everyone? First we got hit with a wicked Nor'Easter Friday causing much damage , lots of snow or rain, and power outages on the East coast. As of this posting there are still people without power. I was very fortunate in that we never lost power. And another storm is due to hit for Wednesday bringing a significant amount of snow- up to 12 inches. Enough all ready-I want Spring, I want Spring, I want Spring!
Well, here's a Spring card to cheer us all up:
Products: white cardstock, notecard, foam squares (Recollections); green cardstock, patterned paper, clear stamps (Simon says Stamp March Card Kit); Stickles glitter glue; alcohol markers; Versafine Onyx Black ink. Linking to the Simon Wednesday Challenge (anything goes), and the Simon Monday Challenge (Whatever the Weather).
Thankfully Friday's snow pretty much melted away Saturday and hubby and I were able to enjoy a dinner out at Stefanos and also to hear the local band Red (the violinist, Chris, is awesome!!)
After placing our orders they brought us our drinks (Guinness for hubby) and a basket of fresh baked bread with dipping sauce. I forgot to ask about the sauce cuz it was divine!
And our meals (minus the salads because I forgot to take a pic):
And I went with the chicken and pesto panini along with a glass of merlot and lemon water. The food is always excellent here especially the wood fire pizzas. Elizabeth I wish you were closer , I'd make sure you got great food wherever we'd go ;) Joining Elizabeth and peeps for T Stands For Tuesday.
Here are my February calendar spreads completed:
Here is a journal page for part of my March calendar pages:
deli paper print, Donna Downey stencil, black acrylic paint, gelatos, Pitt pen. Meant for Art Journal Journey for the theme of Spring this month hosted by Rosie.
Next up is a tag meant for Tag Tuesday (theme is Spring Flowers), and I will also join in at A Vintage Journey for Tag Friday:
manila tag; spray inks; masks; Tim Holtz- Paper Dolls, Botanical, Chit Chat stickers; Distress Vintage Photo ink; sewing machine and black thread; washi tape (Recollections); Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp). And it just dawned on me I could link this to the Simon Monday Challenge too - whatever the weather, and I used Tim Holtz products:)
Now, put on your party hats because PAINT PARTY FRIDAY is celebrating a birthday! Seven years now- and with much thanks to the dedicated hosts EVA and Kristin-mwah!
I made this journal page to celebrate:
Black gessoed pg.; palette and brush painted with acrylic paints. (Those paint gobs are going to take quite awhile to completely dry -lol) Words added digitally. All are welcome to the party so please join in won't you? Have a fabulous week!
