If Friends Were Flowers

Happy Monday!
What a morning...I never like time changes and today was no exception to that...so hard to get out of bed!  And of course, now I seem to be behind on everything this morning!
But I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend!  It was gor-juss here in Montreal!  Like open-the-shades-throw-the-window-open gorgeous! 

We went out for a nice long walk/run yesterday around noon down by the river.  I really wanted to run out on the ice but hubby wasn't so keen on that idea.  Don't you think it would be fun!?

We also went out and looked at a new apartment that we fell in love with, and just might be getting!
Yeah, it's been an exciting couple of days, and this week will bring lots more excitement that I can't quite talk about yet.  But I'll share it with you later! :)

Onto this weeks Digi Makeover challenge!  The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are popping up, and every store in the neighborhood has those fun plastic eggs stocked!  So why not make our challenge Spring/Easter!
Now, honest truth here...Easter cards have not been going so well for me.  This is year 2 that I have not been able to make a decent Easter card to save-my-life!  I mean...how hard can it be to make a cute card with bunnies and chicks!?  I keep trying, and I see so many adorable ones out there, but when it comes to my turn...nothing...so I chose the spring theme :)
 I love how this card turned out!!  Caliope is just the sweetest monster from Paper Makeup and he goes so well with my girly paper :)  The daisy print paper is actually all sparkly and such, but you can't tell in the photo.  I love that paper pack!  So much glitter on the pages!

I colored Caliope in with my pencils and then used my copics to add the dot shadows around him.  I imagine those dots being like little flower pollens swirling around him as he inhales that flower!
The sentiment is also from Paper Makeup and I felt went along with this image beautifully.  I punched the mat layer around the image with my MS Lace Edge punch.  Then cut out a layered daisy to fill in some of the space on the flag.

The final details were the little dots in the corners that I covered with tiny beads to match the center of the daisy.

Come join us this week, just remember to use a digi!

  1. what super fun card emily you did a great job with this theme.

  2. Emily, your card is gorgeous. The way you colored Caliope is so pretty. She doesn't look like monster at all, more like a child in bunny costume. Very suitable for Easter :) Love your card. Pink an green are stunning together.

  3. So adorable! Love the spring feeling of your card.

  4. A very pretty card Emily. Love this image. Thank you for joining us at AGOAC.
