Old cards and where did that spring go?

First of all - THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to all of you wonderful ladies that have visited my blog already. Amazing to find that I even have followers! I am so happy that you wanted to have a peek and it is truly fantastic to read your kind comments!

Spring had really sprung in Stockholm at Easter with tulips abloom and trees with green sheer crowns of leaves. Great was therefore my disbelief earlier in the week when pulling up the blinds and it was SNOWING!! yup, it was coming down buckets of eeky wet sleet! had to go down to the basement to get my winter coat back and some gloves.

It's Friday in my parts of the world and The Color Room and Color Combos Galore have released their new gorgeous palettes. While I am waiting for my mojo to catch up with me and my stash, I am sharing some of the cards that I made in the early beginnings.

The first one is for my ex FIL on his birthday, bright teal and yellow Webster's Pages:

And the second one is a pick-me-up card for my friend J. The text is on the inside. The pps are Webster's Pages:

A really girly and romantic card is next. The pale green pp is DCWV Mariposa and then a bonanza of Prima blooms:

Hope you will all have a beautiful and sunny weekend, cheerio! xxx Eila
