Oh come on - really!

Hi everyone.  Happy Sunday.

Now I know I live in Canada, but I really would like to see the end of winter now - please!

We had more snow yesterday - March in like a lion out like a lamb - well hopefully anyways.  This is outside my bedroom window :-)

I have the next three in the series, only six more to go.

I decided to get out my Prisma colouring pencils for these flowers, as I wanted to add some colour. The flower stamps are from a See D's collection - I bought a big box of them on sale last year.

Still using a little extra paper to cover up the white card base - papers are at least still from the Recollections Cherry Blossoms stack!

I inked all the edges as before and really like how stamping the flowers in the same ink turned out.  Also pleased with my colouring on these :-)

You do realise - I will have to get round to making envelopes for these cards now.  Although, I might have some in my stash that I can use.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  I hope to NOT be shovelling snow today!

These cards are being entered in the following challenges.

  4. Awesome cards Karon! Oh dear look at that snow!! Whoa!!! Here in GA we would be shut down for weeks behind a snow like that.


  5. Beautiful cards - awesome coloring. We're expecting snow tonight (it's Sunday) - another 6 inches plus.

  6. Love your get well card.
    Goodness "Snow" in March, yikes!
    I hope you see the sunlight soon, LOL! Here's blowing you the sunshine from Hawaii.... Did you get part of it yet?

  7. Beautiful job with the pencils. Enough already with the snow. Here in central Illinois we have a record breaking winter of snow & low temperatures. I'm too old for this stuff.

  8. WOW your cards are GORGEOUS!
    Thanks for sharing these pretties.
    Oh my goodness I hope spring comes for you soon.
    No snow here. There was a slight possibility of it this weekend but we just have BIG GIANT RAINDROPS instead.
    Have a wonderful Sunday.
    Crafty hugs,

  9. All 3 cards are beautiful. Love the different layouts and flowers. Fabulous papers. I feel your pain, we woke up to snow again this morning. I'm not liking winter too much anymore.

    Have a creative day.

  10. I live on the east coast of Canada. Here we say that we have 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Not Winter and Almost Winter. :D

    You did a lovely job of coloring those flowers, Karon. Yours are not the quick 16 cards that the technique promises, but yours are beautiful.

    Shivering here too,

  11. Gorgeous, Karon!! The flowers look amazing!! Love the papers!! So, so beautiful!!

    Ugh with the snow. It's going to hit us this afternoon. We already have a nice layer of ice on the ground. I am so over winter. Sigh. Have a great day :)

  13. Hi Karon:) that is such a beautiful photo of the snow:) It's been raining all weekend here in California but I like it but I think it's because I can drink more tea or coffee and cozy up watching movies:LOL! ) Your cards are just beautiful and I love how you made each one different in their own way. Enjoy the rest of you Sunday my friend.
