*butterflies appearing...on bushes, on party decorations, on cards. (this card made by the bohemian at her crafty sister-in-laws' artsy fartsy "play house". a vellum butterfly is layered on a patterned paper butterfly. the card is dry embossed for the raised design effect.) *coffee!! outdoors!! what could be better to the bohemian than a latte and muffin outdoors? sharing it with her oldest daughter! *crocuses blooming! beautiful purple gorgeousness... with a spicy dash of yellow-orange. *HOPE. (card made by the bohemian using ribbon, border punch, stamps and embossing powder on kraft-colored cardstock) Spring brings joy and HOPE in so many ways. the promise of warmth and light returning. the beautiful blooming of flowers. the beginning seeds of garden harvests to come. more time outdoors (for those of us who live in the northwest corner of the country). wishing you Springtime hopes and the heady fragrance of flower-filled rooms... don't forget to make time play and create!!!

the lovely snowfall covering bohemia has finally gone away, although one can unexpectedly come across a pile of it still frozen away in a corner where the sun's rays don't reach. it's breathtaking beauty was visually delicious while it lasted... but the bohemian's little outdoor nook is eagerly awaiting the warmth of spring and the bloom of growing things! the bohemian did get some art-creating accomplished while shut up indoors. these cards are her exchange group cards... the challenge was "dry emboss" and all the little shape attachments were dry embossed. this green card is a pocket for the blue tags, which have a vellum quote mounted on them (secret messages, of course!).and this is the cover the bohemian created for an altered round robin book about to take a trip "around the robin" and get altered to the max. the bohemian's theme: quotes about time... she can't wait to see what each artist comes up with!! Hope you are all creating art and reveling in the beauty of each of your days and moments... warm, snow-free wishes and cozy woodfire hugs to you...
