A sunny day and a bunch of cards...

This is my personal favorite of the day.  What a pear (or pair, because I made this an anniversary card on the inside).  
What a Pear 
I used yellow card stock
Basic Grey Offbeat
Fiskars' printed vellum "Leaves"
Versa Magic inkers in Red Magic, and Sage
Color Box Inker in Chestnut Roan
The ribbon is Martha Stewart

Here are 2 cards for K is for Keep it Simple at the ABC Challenge Blog.
The stamped images are both from Stampin' Up!
The paper on the cross card is Basic Grey Granola
The paper on the heart card is Basic Grey Urban Prairie
I used Wild Wasabi ink from Stampin' Up! to ink the cross image, and Purely Pomegranate to ink the hearts.
This ribbon is again Martha Stewart
The circle die cut is the bottom of the snowman from Snow days (I just like the size of this circle).
It was fun keeping it simple today, so I made a couple cards.  These would make a great set to send as a gift to a friend.
This is my take on a "Home" Challenge for Cuttlebugs.  Our home is in the city, so no white picket fence to paint here, thank God!!!
The background paper is a sheet I can't give credit for.
The other patterned paper is Basic Grey Granola.
The image is Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The sticker is K & Company that I stamped the individual letters together to make the word home.
I cut the circle out of the layered paper and put the embossed image behind the cut circle.
Happy Earth Day!  Here is a natural card for Earth Day and it is being celebrated by the Wednesday Stamper.
It has cork on it, from Quickutz.  It's sticky backed and I really love it.
The stamp image is Stampin' Up! Merci.
The card was spritzed with Walnut Ink spray from Tsukinek
The fibers are from Adornaments
The layer of "Fern" paper is from Fiskars printed Vellum.
I also used a few Copics to color with on the image.  YG63, YG03, C1.  I have to get some more of these.  
And finally for the Belli Challenge blog...
These dogs are also from Cuttlebugs.  I just repeated the dog across the bottom of the card, and inked him with Color Box Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk.
I then tied little bows on their necks with ribbon from Martha Stewart.
And then used the Quickutz paw print to make some fun embellishments to attach to the card for interest.
The sentiment is from DCWV.

I hope you enjoyed all the cards today.  I know I enjoyed making them.  Now I have to get outside and enjoy some sun.  It's the first sun since August!!!  (Just kidding, but it sure can feel like that sometimes.)
