Daisy Lilac Rectangle

Hello,
Happy Monday!  Are you enjoying the beginning of spring?  I sure am.  Yesterday afternoon I was able to go out without a coat.  I truly do thank God for the small things.  The tree pollen count here has been high so those with allergies have needed to be careful.

Today I have a very lovely bookmark to share with you.  I used the Daisy Lilac Rectangle from Blue Ridge Impressions for it.  This stamp is so sweet.  And it works perfectly for a bookmark.  It can be found on page 28 in the catalog.  Here is a pic.


I used a base of white cardstock, then I sprayed it with my Cornflower Blue Walnut spray.  Then I layered the stamped and inked up Daisy image.  Added the Daisy and Blue Forget Me Nots, and some white ribbon flowers.   I colored the image with watercolor pencils.    I added some Stickles to the image for that fun sparkle I love.  I used some scrap ribbon fibers that I had.  Here is a close up.



I hope you will stop by and have a look at the catalog for Blue Ridge Impressions, their link is in the right side of my blog, it will take you there.  They have some of the most beautiful and wholesome stamps around and many other craft supplies for your crafty needs.  Also, you can now use a credit card for your purchases, which is very convenient for those not wanting to do mail order.

I'm so glad you stopped by and God bless you.

Floral Easter

Hello,
I hope your doing well.  Hard to believe the week is half over.  It will be the weekend before we know it.
I wanted to play along at Love To Create's Challenge and they have a color inspiration that I really liked so I used that as my inspiration, their link is below and here is the color photo,


The card I have to share with you tonight uses Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments.  I am just loving this DP.  It is full of vintage and shabby goodness, which is right up my alley.  Here is a pic.


I used a base of white cardstock, the DP and all images and the sentiment are from Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments.  I used some green shabby ribbon, and the flowers are from my stash.  The little eggs are some speckled jelly beans.  Super cute.

I am so glad you stopped by and hope you have a wonderful night.  God bless.

Happy Spring With Violets

Hello,
I hope your doing well.  With spring here I am excited to create some beautiful things with lots of flowers and all the sweet things that come with spring.  The card I am sharing tonight uses Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments DP.  This DP is so pretty and has all the touches of vintage graphics I love.  Beautiful Spring and Easter colors too.  Here is a pic of my card.



I used a base of lavender cardstock, the DP is from Graphic 45 "Sweet Sentiments".  I added a lace ribbon bow, flower button, and some Stickles.  The sentiment is from Graphic 45's DP also.  Here is a close up.


The grass here is desperately trying to turn green here, and I hope spring is slowly starting show up where you are, or maybe you are in an area where fall is coming.  At that point I am sure your welcoming a cool down.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, God bless you.
