Spring Break with no Spring in sight

Holy Cow, this week went fast!

Happy Friends with Flair, everyone! It's Spring Break here, which is the earliest spring break of anyone I know. The last couple of years we have driven to California and had tons of fun, but by the time we got back I needed a vacation from my vacation.

This year we stayed home and it was so nice not to drive anywhere. My little guy's school is on the opposite side of town, so every day he has school I lose an hour of crafting time. Grrr.

This week's card is inspired by the colors my sister chose for her nursery.


I've been recovering a rocker that's been in our family forever for her with those fabrics. I finished and I'm glad I'm done, because fabric moves around too much. Paper is much easier to work with!
This is a color combination I could never have dreamed up, but I like it and I saw a card on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog that I wanted to try:


This has to be one of the lightest cards I've ever made!

Wow, Sarah, the ribbon, the colors, the design are all so fantastic!! I LOVE your card. Fab fabric, too (I can see why you were inspired!).

You asked a question on my blog about the pinwheels (sorry to just now be responding--I've been out of town all week). There are two ways to make the pinwheels move: 1) Make the hole for the brad a little larger than needed for the brad, or 2) Punch a grommet first, and then put the brad through the grommmet. #2 is probably the most common way, but if you're in a pinch or don't want to go through the extra time for a grommet, the first way has worked for me. Just be sure to add a little drop of super glue after you wrap the brad around the back. If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at redballooncards (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Hey, are you submitting cards for publication? You should! Your work is fantastic. *hugs*
