crazy spring weather

Just a few days ago we were enjoying such pretty spring weather here in Missouri. Trees and flowers were blooming. Buds were forming.

Our sunset maples were growing their little seedlings and getting ready to let those little helicopters take off.

Then Mother Nature decided to keep us from becoming too complacent about this whole spring thing and sent wind, freezing rain, sleet, and snow our way overnight.

We only got a couple of inches of the white stuff, and that was less than the original forecasts had predicted, but it still puts a bit of a damper on that spring feeling.

So, I thought I'd post a cheery card that I made a while back when I was playing with those new slim profile EK Success edger punches. This is the Swiss Cheese punch accenting the Hero Arts frog images and sentiment. The images were stamped on decorative paper, cut out, and colored. I left parts of the top froggy unglued and bent his arms (? LOL!) and legs out a bit to add some dimension. The embossing was made with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Sundays. :-)


  1. Love this card. Cool use of the border punch, images and border embossing folder. Thank you for sharing all you creative ideas.

  2. glad to see you posting!
    Love the EK punches too-they work SOOOO well.

    Happy Spring---not that we get one here on Cape Cod :)

  3. I already liked edge and border punches, but I really like the way that these punch easily through card stock, I like the designs, and I like the way that they're designed to lock into a flatter position when not in use.

    Here are a couple of links so that folks who haven't seen these yet can ogle them:

    I couldn't find a nice photo on the EK Success site, so those are from Michael's. The edgers retail for $14.99 USD and the others $9.99 USD.

    Thanks for dropping by and I hope that everyone gets to see some springtime weather soon. :-)
