Spring is Here!!


Happy Easter everyone. I hope everyone has a good day. It is suppose to be a great day here. It is going to be in the mid 70's. I only shut off my heat a few days ago because it was so cold here. I can't believe how beautiful it is now.

Today's theme for the Stempeltraume is Just Girls. I have so many girl stamps so I loved this theme. If you like challenges you need to check this out. The other DT's do great work, their themes are fun and you could win some great prizes! I picked this image from Sugar Nellie because it had never seen ink. Every time I tried to buy it last year it was out of stock. When I placed an order this winter I saw that they had it so I had to buy it. I used Tim Holtz new paper on this card! I wish you could see it better. I absolutely love it. It is all double sided, comes in different sizes and colors. I think this paper will fit well with so many of my stamps.

The other challenges this card fits are:

Annabelles - Say it with flowers. I love this daisy and the way this little lady looks like she is giving it to someone.

Daring Card Makers - Diamonds - The sparkly rain drops are actually fingernail art I bought in the $1 bin at JoAnns. I thought they would make great raindrops or tears.
The shiny flower is from CTMH that I have had in my stash for a while.

Fab & Funky - Spring is in the Air - I am happy now that the weather is nice enough for me to open my windows and enjoy the weather!

For Fun - Anything Goes - I love these themes!!

Little Red Wagon - Rolling into Spring - What says spring better than flowers and bare feet!

Crafty Creations - Anything Goes - These themes are great because I can use anything I want and fit the theme!

ABC - R is for Red - The paper I used is called Rose Red from SU.

Everybody Art - Spring - Love the sunshine and nice weather and love to make my spring cards!

Truly Scrumptious - Sketch - I loved this sketch. I knew I had to find a way to use it. The optional theme was fly away but I thought adding more to this card would be too much.

Stamptacular - Just for girls! I wouldn't say gardening is just for girls but I think this card with the girl picking the daisy is!

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my art! Thank you to everyone who leaves a comment. I love reading them. It's nice to know people like what I love creating.
