some FUN from Kim Hughes

OK, one last fast post for this evening.
Kim Hughes has a challenge at . The deadline is tonight at midnight and the challenge is to go to papercrafts connection blog and pick anything there as inspiration for a card and she wants you to mail it to someone. I love the colors and gorgeous cards ~ especially the very talented Debbie Olson's beautiful "Gifts of Spring", on the cover of this month's Paper Crafts Magazine so that was my inspiration for this card I am sending to my friend up North on the first day of Spring!

Sorry the photo is not great, my lighting is not good at night in my craft room...if you click on the picture, you can see the detail a little better.

My Card ~
Cardstock: Honeydew Polka Dot, White and Pale Green (hills) are all from AC Moore
Stamps: Tree, House and Clouds from Inque Boutique "Memoirs" clear stamp set
Inks: Green Galore from SU, Terra Cotta & Denim from Adirondack, Moonlight white from Archival
Embellishments: stitching on my sewing machine for the 'hills' Hologram Embossing Powder on the clouds, Copper & Green glitter from Stickles; satin ribbon from Offray


  1. Hi Helen, I see you have made another spring time card. It is so cute! I am sure it will put a smile on the recipients face when she receives it. I can't wait to see the cards you make for MFW. I'll be back!

  2. Hello! Thx for visiting my blog, thought I'd come and have a nose at yours! I love your card - I find scenery cards difficult to do - they always look so messy! I love your Trigger Tuesday card too - so fresh!

  3. gosh, this is SO SWEET!! I adore that silky yellow bow...delish :) Thanks so much for playing along

  4. love your scene card, helen-esp. the stitched hills, and clouds!

  5. Hi Helen,
    I'm Rachel's sister (aoneofakinddesign)Bethann! I've been wanting to get over to your blog and I'm glad I did! I just love this card! It has an innocense about it. I actually went to a high school of the arts, you had to be a music or art major and I majored in art...of course. I see a really nice flow of creativity in your work and I really like it a lot! I'm also a child advocate and I just love the innocent, whimsical way about this card and some of your others. I really enjoyed going through some of your older posts, didn't get through all of them but, I'll be back. I've added you to my blog as a favorite! Keep up the great work Helen.
