Frieda's Spring Garden . . . Card Patterns 111

Happy Tuesday!!! Its snowing~~~I need to go visit my friend in Oklahoma who tells me it is 97 degrees there. :)

I'm creating Spring in my craft room since it will still be a while before we experience it in real life! Frieda is picking flowers and wearing a short dress . . . something I wouldn't dare venture outside in right now. This is for the current sketch at Card Patterns, number 111 I think and for such a simple sketch I found it a challenge! I scrapped I don't know how many ideas for the three elements on the side of the card before I remembered my hat pins from Mark's Finest Papers. I think they kind of match the flower in her hand, what do you think?

Little Frieda there is available for you to win on Card Patterns this week, as The Craft's Meow, a new company started by my dear friend Lisa, is the sponsor! Three Frieda images will go to a lucky winner. And Lisa is also . . . drumroll here . . . giving away ALL of the four new sets being designed by Nina Brackett for her May 1st release as the new designer for The Craft's Meow, actually a complete set of four for every hundred fans of her new facebook page! I love Nina's designs, I'm actually eligible for that giveaway! Click on the link I provided to check it out. Thanks for looking. Hope your Spring weather is treating you more kindly in your part of the world!
