Hello friends! Raise your hand if you would love to receive one of these bouquets!! I got so 'wrapped up' in these beautiful Springtime bouquets, way too much time was spent trying to recreate them, rather than being inspired by them! I quit, and took a totally different route.
- twine instead of brown paper
- a few sprigs of tiny flowers
- a bit of bling
- who needs roses anyway?

- Spring showers, or flowers!
- Must be new ... never before used.
- CANNOT use BLUE!
- Showers 👍 to make those flowers grow!
- Colorado Craft Company's All Weather Friends NEW
- Not a speck of blue! Which is alright by me!
A sweet little sentiment, and Bob's your Uncle! Who says pinecones have to be brown? [edited to add - don't say I didn't warn you, Bobby! xx]

I was thrilled to have a win during the March Waffle Flower Challenges - playing again is a great way to say thank you!
This week the fabulous Challenge team is asking us to use some of the darling, tiny stamps from any of the Waffle Flower sets this week ... this little mouse, from Grow Happiness provided all the tiny flowers to fill our shared dreams of a big flower garden!

I found myself paper piecing another bunny who really wanted to join the party at CAS Mix Up April 2021 challenge, too. Poor guy will probably get the boot for not being quite CAS enough - but a little birdy told him to just go for it!
Have a wonderful Sunday, my friends!

My Friday was spent on a little road trip with my honey - a very fun day! We've had a few day trips this week while he's been on vacation.
So, I found a cute CAS way to add a bit of Mixed Media to my crafty style today. I'm sharing it with the CAS Mix Up April 2021 challenge - add Paper Piecing, to my stamped, die-cut, and dry-embossed card!

Okay who wants a cupcake? OMG these are too pretty to eat! and way off the charts extraordinary!
One in particular caught my eye - with the help of a friend, I had a few little blooms to help me create my Inspired By - Spring is Sweet card! See if you can find it... here's a little closeup...

I am thrilled to be Hopping with Nina and the fabulous Waffle Flower designers and lots of other wonderful guests today! This month, the Waffle Flower release is full of stamps, dies, and stencils that celebrate the hope and joy of Spring!
First up [might be my favorite] is Jumbo Flower Pot I'd love to live in a home where every window was hung with one of these planters full of flowers! I've made mine complete with a 'coconut grass' liner by stamping the pot onto kraft card, and dabbing it with lots of color - water colored this time! My friendly Hello is from another WF set I've loved: Crocus. If you look closely, you'll see something new from their stencil department - Brick Wall.
There is a whole lot to love from each of the Hop participants - so it's time for me to send you on your way to Rachel Arribas where you're bound to be amazed!

Hello my friends - hope your week was wonderful, and you're looking forward to Easter!
Are you as overwhelmed as I am with all the releases lately? I wouldn't have the budget to 'have it all!' But I sure am loving all that I'm seeing. Besides, I had such a lovely bunch of new goodies in March that none of them got the attention they really deserved. So today, I'm revisiting those from Pigment Craft Company. Then I'll take a peek to see all the wonderful new things Ivana has in store for us in her April release!
If you have any questions, leave them in the comments [but if you're a 'no-reply' blogger, also leave an email address] - for today, I'll just share my cards!
I've brought out my Concord & 9th inks today. First up, my favorites, for a masculine hello...
That's it for my Friday - hope you have a fun day today, and a wonderful weekend, too!
