Thinking Spring on a Monday night

Tonight I finished up some projects and added to the box for OWH.  First is another train banner - this one for an etsy sale.  I just love the rush I get from someone I don't know asking to buy my goodies.
Then I finished an image swap where we just stamp our favorite images and then we switch them up.  I have found it to be the biggest mojo starter.
After those were ready to go, I knew I had to add to my OWH box.  Four cards in total and both on the spring side.  I am working really hard to make my cards more lush with more detail and not so 'card party kit' as when we needed hundreds and hundreds.  There is still a need, but less.  These images were both found at the dollar bin at JoAnn's.  I embossed the bird's nest, added gel pen to the eggs and it looks really polished to me.  It is lined in white with a stampin up flower image.
The last two are on a paper with glossy accents to the petals, inked edges to let it feel more worn, and stickles to the flowers.  This is also lined and stamped.
Thanks for stopping by - hope you had a great Monday, too.
