Relaxing Day

Good Morning! Today is Scrap-Creations Going Grey Challenge. Today's theme is to create a Spring card and, as always, use Basic Grey paper!! You need to check this out. The other DT's did great work and this is a fun challenge. I had such a hard time figuring out what stamp to use. I am itching to use all my spring stamps. The fact that the weather last week was beautiful (I opened my windows for the 1st time in 5 months) does put you in the mood to create Spring cards.

I finally decided on this stamp by Sugar Nellie. I love all of these delicate girly stamps. I love this color combo also. I bought the blue flowers at Michaels and wanted to use them so that was how the color scheme started. I was thrilled when I found this Basic Grey paper that compliments it so well.

The other great challenges this card fits are:

Magical Crafts - Spring/Easter - YEAH....Making this card for Spring really puts me in the mood to pull out all my short sleeve shirts! Love the challenge.

Incy Wincy Designs - Spring/Easter - Great minds think alike. I think everyone is in the mood for spring to arrive!

Crafty Cardmakers - Spring into Spring - Any day now we will be able to believe the nice weather is going to stay!!

Crafty Catz - Spring - I love it when everyone is on the same page!

Secret Crafter - Spring has Sprung - With the nice weather we had last week I think Spring has Sprung here!

- Blue/Green - This is a great color combo for Spring. Great Idea

Pals Paper Arts - Sketch - I liked this sketch! I knew I could work with it for this image.

Handful of Stamps - Remove the Dust - How cute is this? I don't know the definition of old but if you look at my credit card lately I would say this stamp that I have not used since last summer is considered old. Writing this scares me a little but I deserve all my new stuff!!

Thank you for stopping by. Thank you to everyone who leaves me a comment I really do treasure them!

DP: Basic Grey
Stamps: Sugar Nellie,

Those BG papers are a perfect match. If you hadn't have told us I would have sworn you had coloured them to match the paper. It's great when you find the perfect paper isn't it?

Thanks for joining us over at Crafty Cardmakers :)
