One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

The Challenge & Card Conncept

You know I am just loving the sketches provided by Lesley at Always Playing with Paper
and this time I decided to join it with the Card Concept challenge # 8...use and umbrella
The sentiment and umbrella are from Wplus9,
the pattern paper is Doodlebug:  Hello Spring
Thanks for taking a look, I have a full weekend of volleyball. 
It is the regional championships, both granddaughters are playing in the same location,
and fortunately it is in town at the Portland convention Center!
At least we don't have an hour drive (or more!) to get there!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Heart Hugs,


  1. Colleen, fabulous card! Thank you so much for sharing at the Card Concept!

  2. This is such a wonderful card. I LOVE your paper pieced umbrella and the colorful patterns. Terrific spring card!

  3. Love the pattern mixture dots and pretty flowers -- great job with the sketch

  4. Great combination, Colleen! I keep forgetting that Lesley has a challenge now on her blog. I love how you've executed the design with the umbrella theme! Hugs, Darnell

  5. This is such a sweet card. I love the paper you chose, and how you paper pieced your umbrella--or is it stamped? Either way, it is bright and cheery and looks great on the card.

  6. This is super, Colleen! The happy Springy paper paired with the cute sentiment and umbrella is perfect!! I am so happy you are enjoying my sketches! Thank you!
