A Sign of Spring.



My boy's kindergarten teacher asked the students to bring in a sign of spring next week at school. Nathan wants to go out and get a photo of a bird's nest, and that gave me the idea for this card.



I made it with 2 challenges in mind. First the latest Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.

And the PALE BLUE EASTER challenge at The Ribbon Reel.


Also -new topic, you can stop reading if you need to, I understand :)
Why did it take me so long to discover Pinterest?! Seriously! In the search bar I'll type any random object that can be remade or reused and it's endless inspiration. I put in "book" and found planters, shelves, tables, etc, ad nauseam.... all made out of books! The point I'm getting to is that I take no credit in these Scrabble coasters. I didn't come up with the idea but LOVED it when I saw it and had to make some. The name magnets I did just because I actually had all the right letters left over.





Thanks for stopping by,
Hope you had a great Easter. Mmmmm chocolate,
Farrah

I adore your card!! Lovely, clean and the wood (twigs, reeds???) are brilliant!

Love what you did with the Scrabble tiles too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love your spring card! I haven't started 'pinning' yet but probably will have to see what all the fuss is about soon. Just don't want to end up needing to spend more time on the computer than I already do or my family will disown me.

Gorgeous, Farrah! I love the twigs! So creative... Congrats on the TT shout-out, too. Super well-deserved! The scrabble coasters are really cool...I haven't seen those before. Yes, Pinterest is addictive ;)

Really beautiful CAS card - I love the natural touch you created by adding the little sticks and the little bird label too! Thanks so much for joining us at The Ribbon Reel this fortnight.
