Clean and Simple Card Making 3 - Day 1

IMG_4027





Clean and Simple Card Making 3 is the latest class from on Line Card Classes, and like so many others right now I am a student.  So I am sharing my first card today from Day 1 Faux Effects and more specifically using Debbie Hughes faux layered die cuts.  I received my new Lawn Fawn goodies on Monday and broke out the dies to make a spring card.  It was spring here today with the temperature up to 9 C (48 F), the birds were chirping, spring coat on and so fun watching the boys across the road jumping the still pretty big snowbank on their driveway with their bikes in T-shirts.  Tonight though we bare down for another winter storm and temperatures to drop down to -18 C overnight and 10 - 15 cm of new snow.

Tracey, I've been staring at this card in the gallery, and didn't realise it was you (I didn't read the name, just admired the card)! I decided that I HAD to come by and say how much I love it!

I laughed out loud at the thought of kids in t-shirts at 9C! Our daytime temps in the middle of Winter rarely are that low, and when they are, everyone is rugged up, lol!
