Sending Springtime Smiles



Hey stamping friends! Are you in total shock that I'm posting an actual creation? I certainly am! After a long stamping break, I ordered some new stamping goodies that got me motivated to get back in to my office and CREATE! This darling little spring flower and sentiment are from a new set called Spring Blossoms and is available in the Occasions Mini.




I have several challenges jotted down for this week that hopefully I will attempt, but I narrowed this project down to encorporating the Play Date Cafe Challenge #77...



and Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #113.



Thanks for stopping by! I hope to post something new by the end of the week, so stay tuned:)



Stamps: Spring Blossoms
Paper: Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla CS, Woodland Walk DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Jumbo Button, Linen Thread, Pearls, Corner Rounder Punch, Cutter Kit, Big Shot, Circle & Scallop Circle dies (Spellbinder)
