Amelia In the Garden

Hi there!
We have warmed up over the past few days.  Due a nice thundershower today and tomorrow, maybe a tornado or two, then back down in temperature again!  Maybe we will skip nice Spring days this year and go right into Summer!  Has your weather been all mixed up?

Now with the weather forecast finished we can get down to business!  This week at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #123, our theme is "Use a Sentiment."  We have two lovely sponsors for you- Digi My World and Crafty Sentiments Designs.  My sample card is using Amelia-4 by DMW.  She is in her garden which looks just like mine except my bunnies aren't pink, they are brown with white cotton tails!  

I've used a Crafty Sentiments Sentiment.  CSD has the cutest images available, too.  Here is Amelia with the CSD Sentiment closer:

She was fun to make.  Amelia and her sentiment are on a Gate-Fold card but you can't really tell- LOL.  Those gorgeous butterflies are a Bonus from Butterfly Border by StampArt Designs by Kathryne.  She is a Whimsy gal but on her personal blog she has many, many fab things going on, like free sentiments!  You MUST sign up for her emails as you will enjoy them very much.  AND make a card using one of her images and she just might post it on her blog!  

My Teamies made some lovely cards so I do hope you'll stop by Penny's this week and take a peek.  We would love for you to join our Use A Sentiment Challenge at Penny's and give us a look at your masterpieces!  

It's early morning here in the States and my head isn't working straight yet so I hope I've gotten all the particulars written out here for you correctly!  I've almost forgotten to add that I wish you many Bright Spots, enough to carry you safely through the rest of the week!  Talk to you soon, my Friend.
