Hi! I made this card for SCS's CC251 and Mojo Monday 119. I used Barely Banana and Dusty Durango, didn't really have Basic Gray, but I used "Basic Grey" paper, so maybe that will count! The image is a Sarah Kay from the coloring pages. I colored the image with Copics. I hope they make a stamp with this image soon. It's one of my favs! I used Kaiser pearls in the 3 of the corners, and a soft yellow ribbon. I cut the image and rectangles with Nestabilities.

Scares to you

This card was made for two challenges over at Split Coast: WT242 and SC252. WT's challenge was to use purple, and SC's challenge was the sketch. I used DCWV's cardstock for the purple card base, and SU's green behind BasicGrey's LilyKate dp. The bottom purple is also LilyKate. The ribbon is BasicBasic, and the green rhinestones are from Kaiser. I colored the image with Copics and sponged the background with chalk. The image is from my daughter's stash. I guess that's about it! Thanks a bunch for lookin' :)

Happy pumpkins

Hi! It's been awhile since I posted a card. I had to really think about it as I was making it :). This card was made for SCS's color challenge CC242 for today. I used BasicBrey's Urban Prairie black nad their "pink" for my main colors, and DCWV that had some kraft color in it. The ribbon was Krafty, so I used my Offray ribbon and added a bow. I used Kaiser Craft black pearls and my Nesties ovals to cut and frame the image. The framed image is popped up on dimintionals. I colored the image with Copics. I know the orange doesn't really go with the "melon", but hey, that's what color pumplins are! Oh, and the image is by Whipper Snapper. I guess that's it. Need to get back into the swing of things :). Thanks for lookin' and have a great week.

I've been sick for over a week. Finally went to Dr. on Monday and I have pneumonia :(. Wasn't surprised the way I was coughing and the fever and chills and sweats. Am starting to feel slightly better. What a bother!

Not cards

This time I am showing my creative side with clothing for my granddaughter, Avery, who's 4! She started pre-K last week. Don't you think she'll look darling in these?! Thanks for taking a look!

Planted 48 small starts of petunias this morning out front. Husband took out the last juniper bush in the side yard, and cut lots of ivy off the fence. That stuff is trying to take over the whole side yard. So out it's coming!

Rain finally stopped and the sun is shining. Is in the low 70s I think. Feels nice and warm in the sunshine.

Wish I had my camera cord and could upload some of the pics I've taken. Oh well...

Hugs, Linda

Hello from Oregon!

Hi! Well, we did get our laptop hooked up, but I don't have my camera cord and I didn't bring my card making stuff. But I can check in and say Hi and look in on your blogs and see what you are up to :) . My husband and I have worked much in the yard at my mom-in-law's property. But today we are going to ride over to the coast and check out the Pacific.

We have helped MIL celebrate her 97th birthday. Some friends met us at Carlos's which is a great Mexican restaurant here in little Cave Junction. There were 14 who helped her celebrate 97 years of life. The next day she couldn't remember what we did, or where those flowers came from, but at the time, she enjoyed it!

Will check in often now that I have means.

Hugs to you all... Linda

A Message to all of you

Well, it's almost time. Friday my husband and I are taking his mother to Oregon for 3 months - May 1 through July - should be home by August 1. I don't know if we are going to have any internet, so I don't know if I'll even get to check on all of you to see how you are doing, or to post a card. Please don't give up on me! I will be back. (I'll probably go through withdrawal if we don't have access!) We plan to do lots of activities (which we don't have time for now). But I will try to do a card once in a while if I am able. There is a small scrapbooking/stamp store in her little town where I can get a few supplies. And Medford isn't too far away. There are some places there to purchase things. I know they have a Michaels and JoAnns, and I think they have a Hobby Lobby!

I will miss all of you. Check mid-May to see if I've posted. If I have, Yea, that means I have access :).

Hugs to you all,

Flight of the butterfly

This is for the Copics #10 color challenge to use RV34, B02, and B39. I have B02, also used B32, 34, RV000 and RV13, Y11, G000 and G21, and R02. The image is by Rubber Stampede. I stamped the image twice. I cut out the second butterfly and glued it to the first image, looks like it's flying! I ran the top and bottom of the card through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. And that's it! I like this card. Hope you do, too!

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Mojo83 Thanks

Hey, last one for today! This is for Mojo Monday Challenge 83, a sketch. I used K and Company Bailey papaer (both sides of one sheet) for the dp. The cs is DCWV. The image is my new Flourishes set of Violets. So pretty! First time to use it (just got it Monday) :). Colored with Copics. The decorative border is punched with a Fiskers border punch (is that redundant?). The ribbon is Offray.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!


I used CCEE's sketch to make this card for the Basic Grey challenge, to paper piece. I stamped the image, then stamped it again on each of the dp cardstock from BG's Urban Prairie. I used the pink for the hat and the "white" for the box. I found a feather from a pillow and stuck it on the hat! I used a pink Copic marker on the inside of the hat and Fluffle's nose. I cut the image out with Nestabilities ovals and the scallop from BG's pink. I put tiny pearls on the flowers on the pink side. The pink flower is from Hobby Lobby - Spare Parts, and the green is Primaflowers. Offray ribbon and Michaels pearl rhinestones completes the card. I had fun paper-piecing Fluffles!

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Life's a Hoot!

Ok, there's a story behind this card. I knew I had a half-sister (my dad was married once before he married my mom), and he had a daughter from his first marriage. But we have never met, or even talked - until a little over a week ago! We connected and talked by phone. She lives in Texas, and I'm in Florida. But it was so cool to talk with her and finally know I have a big sister!!! So I made this card with her in mind. I'm going to put pictures with it and send it to her. It's going to say inside: Sisters: Like two peas in a pod! What do you think? Think she'll like it?

Ok, now the card: The image is Rachel Anne Miller's owls colored with Copics. CS is DCWV. Cut the image out with Nestabilities ovals and the scallop bg is Basic Grey's Perhaps - Princess' Pea. I put a tag from the same on the inside. The ribbon is Michaels Home & More Classic Collection.

Thanks a bunch for listenin' and lookin'!

Goin' on a picnic!

Ok, this is for Friday Sketcher's Challenge #48. I used this Sarah Kay image - isn't she adorable? I colored her with my Copics and cut out the image with Nestabilities Oval - the largest one. Yes, it cut off the end of the tire, but I fixed it. The image is popped up on foam dots. The card base is gray cs, and is DCWV as is the blue and yellowish green. The cream is unknown. All cs is from my scrap stash. The dp is from Basic Grey's LilyKate. It's 6x6 inches, all the same sheet! The pearls are from Michaels and the flowers are Primaflowers.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!


Hi! This card is for Penny Black's sketch challenge for week 45. All the cardstock I used is from my scrap collection! I love this teal with the dark purple. And the yellow is for the little bird and the golf tee. Actually, the yellow is Basic Grey from the Urban Prairie collection. The colored cs is DCWV. I colored the little hedgie with copics, cut him out, popped him up on foam dots. I also popped out the little bird after cutting it out. The purple panel behind hedgie is also popped out on foam dots. The ribbon: it's just because I wanted it :). I love sheer ribbon, don't have a lot yet, but I'm gradually collecting more. It's from Sheer Creations.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!


This card was made for Magnolia's first challenge, a sketch. I colored Tilda first, then had to find paper to go with her :-). I used ribbon to contrast between the blue and green. I used green Kaiser pearls and a green button to accent the card. I colored Tilda with Copics. this is a very simple card. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Black and White with one other color

This card was made for Whiff of Joy's challenge #26, to use black and white with a touch of color. I used yellow Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol to color the touch of color. The black is also Prismacolor pencil. I used yellow Basic Grey Urban Prairie. The brad is also Urban Prairie. The ribbon is Michaels Textured Trios black and white gingham. I layered the card with the base of the card from GA Pacific white cs, followed by black from the Paper Studio, the yellow BG, then the black, yellow and finally the image on white. I used a yellow double spiral clip for the ribbon. That's it.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Take time to smell the roses

This is the first time I've used this image, and it is so cute! I colred it with Copics and sponged the background behind the image with chalk. This is the first time I've used this ribbon from Michaels (Sweet Life Fairies) as well. I think it's really fun. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder Spots and Dots for the red background cardstock, I distressed the brown cs, and scalloped the green. I used a red Prima felt flower with a white button. That's it. Pretty simple, but I like the card!

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

The fourth card in this challenge series is a color challenge to use Soft Blue, Soft Yellow, and Soft Brown. The brown isn't as dark as it appears in this picture. I used the lightest, softest shade I have! I stitched around the blue border and again on the yellow border. This card has 7 layers!!! I think the image is by WhipperSnapper. It's colored with Copics. I cut the image out with Nestabilities Large Labels, cut out the mat and rounded the corners. I used blue rhinestones in the corners. There's a touch of light brown ribbon at the bottom of the image (Offray). I popped the image up on foam dots.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!


This one is the third sketch. I don't know who the image is from (again, my daughter's stash). It was cut out with Nestabilities Large Labels. I colored it with Copics and put pink rhinestones from Kaiser in the centers of the flowers. I used pink and white checked ribbon with a pink Primaflower and a white pearl in the center. I used white Kaiser pearls in the upper right corner of the card. The image is popped out on foam dots. The "white" appearing paper is really a soft plaid of pink, blue, green and yellow with white. It's prettier IRL. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!


This is the second card for the Verve April sketch challenge. I think the dp is by Creative Imaginiations (Dena), but I'm not sure. The cardstock is from my stash. The image is from my daughter's stash. I colored the image with Copics, trying to match the paper. I love this ribbon, and wanted to use it with this card. I used Nestabilites Large Labels to cut out the image. I punched two holes at the bottom of the card and pulled the ribbon through. I used Kaiser pearls on the corners of the image mat. Pretty simple.
Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

VSAPR1 Verve Sketch Challenge for April 1

This is the first of four sketch challenges by Verve for April. I think this image is from Stampin'Up, but I'm not sure (my daughter's stash). I colored the image with Copics, cut it out and matted it with Nestabilities circle and scallop. The cardstock is from my stash. The dp is Dena by Creative Imaginations. The ribbon is Offray and the pearls are by Kaiser Craft.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Copics Color Challenge #8, I heart Sketch

This card: well, I wasn't sure what to do with it when I started! I don't have RV29, E57 or YG67, so I used RV00 and RV13, E35 and E3y and YG06 and YG25. The image is either Stampendous or Inkadinkado (my daughter's stash). I colored the top with the two RV colors and the cupcake paper with the E35 & E37 and also the YG colors. I found cs that was close to the colors called for, put a piece of dp behind the image and side panels. I put a piece of ribbon (Offray) behind as awell. I used Primaflowers and brads on the panels. It needed something else, so I stacked three flowers for the upper right corner. Turned out pretty cute, even if i do say so!

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

CPS111, Cute Card Thursday #55

This card combines CPS111 with Cute Card Thursday #55 to use pink and brown. All paper is from my stash (don't know what it is!). There is a light designer paper that has the pinks and a light brown in it. I used it on top of the cinnimin colored brown cs, layered again with it and a pink cs, layered the pink sc with the ds paper and one rectangle of the brown. All the rectangles are popped up with foam dots. I cut the phrase/image out as well after cutting it with Nestabilities. The image is colored with Copics. I also stitched the dp onto the cs with brown thread. There is a dark brown ribbon from Offray angled behind the image and rectangles.

That's it! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

MFTSC76 My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

I used the image from the ice cream set. (Yes, it's mine!) I colored it with Copics: YG03,06,00, Y21,02, R22,27, BG10,11,13, E21,18, C1, W3,5, B21,24.

The bg strip is Basic Grey, the ribbon is Offray. I cut a circle from the red and the sentiment from white with a Nestabilities oval scallop. I used a soft green chalk to sponge around the image. The cardstock ?

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!


Mojo Monday! This is for today's sc #82. The image is from my daughter's stash (SU, I think). I colored it with Copics, and cut it out, popping it up on foam dots. The bg paper is Basic Grey, Procelain collection. The cardstock is from my stash. The pearls are from Kaiser Craft, Blush. I added a pearl to the flower center. I also popped out the square on foam dots. The bottom is cut with a Fiskers border punch. The ribbon is from Offray. That's it! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Friday Sketchers #47

This is for Friday Sketchers sketch challenge #47. The image and sentiment are from SU (StampinUp), I'm pretty sure (my daughter's stash). I cut both out with Nestabilities Circles, Scallops and the image with long rectangle scallops. I used cardstock I had and the dp is Dena Designs by Imaginations. The image is colored with Copics: Y06, YR04, R11,27, RV13, and 000. I used Kaiser white (snow) pearls in the upper right corner, and a ribbon from Michael's: Go With the Grain. I used the swirly paper instead of a stamp or cut-out. I thought it made a really pretty card!

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Basic Grey #30

I made this card for the Basic Grey's challenge #30 to make something representing our favorite chocolate. Mine is Hershey's (anything) Kisses with almonds. I chose this image and card for the challenge. I got this image from the Coloring Book site, downloaded it into a Word file and shrunk it to size. I definitely think this image needs to be a stamp! I colored her with Copics: R22, 11, 20, 14; YG06; E33,35,37,21; Y02,21; G21, W3, RV000, 13. The paper is Basic Grey Sultry, one of my favs! There is a dp under the image, but the stitching and image cover it up so it was lost. I used BG dark brown and pink from Sultry, and stitched around the pink. The image is mounted on the dark brown and popped out on foam dots.

Fun image and card. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Whiff of Joy #25

This card is for today's Whiff of Joy Challenge #25, a sketch challenge. I used the stamp image Willow with Cookies (I was hoping my new WoJ stamps would come today, but no). I colored her with Copics and cut her with my Nestabilities rectangle. I used greens and a brown cardstock and Flavia by Colorbok (the kraft color dp) and I don't know what the green dp is. I used a piece of eyelet lace on the bottom of the card. Very simple.
Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

SAVSC2: A brand new Challenge!!!

I know, I just used this image! But for a brand new challenge, I just had to use my favorite Sarah Kay! And they are colored totally different, and the cards look nothing alike. Forgive me? Thanks :)

A close-up of the card.

I used Country Girl by Sarah Kay and colored her with Copics as shown. The image and mat are cut with Nestabilities rectangles and scallop. For a "country" image, I just had to use my calico paper and checks (gingham) blue. The gingham is by Making Memories, don't know for sure the floral dp. The flowers are tiny Primaflowers with matching brads. The pearls are Denim by Kaiser Craft. Don't know the blue cardstock. The card base is GA Pacific cardstock from Wal-Mart.

That's it! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

CPS110, JBE048

This card was made for CPS110, but it also applies to Jacksonbelle Tuesday's challenge to do white on white. The image is from WhipperSnapper, colored with Copics, and the base of the card is embossed with Cuttlebug border embossing folder twice. The image is cut out with Nestabilities Oval Scallop, and I paper pierced around the scalloped edge. A CAS, huh!? Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Copics: E18, 33; B02, 32, 34; G09, 85; Y06

High Hopes Challenge #25

I don't know if this is even "legal", but I found this image while perusing the Internet looking for Sarah Kay images. She is soooo cute, she needs to be a stamp, don't you think? She made an adorable card. I've done several images, and if you think it shouldn't be used, please, please let me know! Don't want to do anything I shouldn't! I promise not to sell her!

The card: I really liked the sketch challenge. I used Copics to "enhance/color" the image (part of it is grayscale, part ready to color). I used FlowerSoft on the flowers in the foreground. I cut her out with Nestabilities Ovals and matted with Scallops. I put three Kaiser Craft Bliss pearls on the bottom left, and Prima flowers with tiny Bliss pearls in the centers. I tried to cut out leaves with my Cricut from "Walk in My Garden" but they seem a little large for the flowers. It has three main layers, counting the image. Pretty simple, but great image!

Let me know if this is "illegal"! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Magnolia vs Stampavie

I think this is one of my favorite challenges: I love Stampavie!!! Sarah Kay is my very most favorite stamps (I hope they make more and more!!!), and I do like (senior moment...), anyway, the other designer for Stampavie :). So: this is the card I made for this last challenge. This is my very most favorite image of Sarah Kay... I was raised on a farm and we had lots of chickens! I colored this image with Copics. The yellow checked dp is by The Paper Patch and the green dp is Porcelain by Basic Grey (my new favorite paper company). The cardstock is from my stash. I cut the image with Nestabilities rectangles and scalloped mat. The yellow pearls are from Kaiser Craft. The ribbon is one of my favs as well, by Offray. The flowers are Prima, and the brads are from Memory Maker, and the double spiral clip is from Hobby Lobby.

Fun, fun! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Mojo Monday 81

Mojo Monday time again! What a cool sketch challenge for this week! I love these two dp's, and it was really fun to be able to combine them into a single card. The dp is by Dena Designs that I've had a long time. I don't know who the cardstock is by. The base of the card is GA Pacific cardstock. I used the darkest purple for the first layer, then layered the next two layers... the yellow is on a soft pink and the stripe is on a softer shade of purple. Then I used the same cardstock on the top layers, alternating the soft purple onto the yellow dp and the soft pink onto the stripe dp. I used the dark purple as the scallped mat for the image. Mat and image cut with Nestabilities Circles and Scallops. I used Inkssentials Opaque White Pen to put dots around the scalloped edge. I used a pink Kaiser rhinestone on the left panel and Latte pearls onthe right. O used a dark purple Offray ribbon on the left panel and put flowers cut with Cuttlebug dies on the top. I couldn't resist that red button :) ! The right flower has a soft yellow button. The image is by Great Impressions colored with Copics.

And there you have it! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Just want to say "Thanks" to those who put on the fun challenges for those of us who are "creatively challenged"! It helps tremendously :)

One for Four

Basic Grey Paper used: Euphoria and Sultry
This card was made for four challenges for Saturday: Basic Grey #29, Penny Black #43, OCC and Sketch Saturday #45. They all wanted an Easter/spring card. Unfortunately, I don't have many (just one, and it's not a Penny Black) :( . So I improvised. I made the computer-generated sentiment on the inside of the card an Easter sentiment. I like it. Hope you do, too!

Computer-generated phrase reads: Going to see the Risin King! Happy Easter!

Friday Sketchers 46

This little card was created for Friday Sketchers #46. The card base is GA Pacific cardstock. I'm not sure what the mat for the stripes is from. I used Basic Grey - Cupcake dp , both the stripes and the red mat for the image, and Stampendous Fluffles and Snail. The image is colored with Copics: R20,22,29, G21,99,000. The ribbon is by Home and More Classic Collection. I used rhinestones from Michael's on the upper right corner, and in the centers of the flowers I put Kaiser Copper pearls. Simple but sweet :)

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

365 Challenge Day 33

This card is for the new 365 challenge, day 33, to allow white space. I love Cuttlebug embossing folders, so I used "Bird Call" and left it white. I used GA Pacific cardstock and a ribbon by Sheer Creations. That's it. There is no more :).

Thanks for lookin'!


This card was fun! I used dp as wallpaper, put dp on the dress, and made a picture from the dp as an embellishment. I put a button over the flower and topped it witha small pearl. There are two other small pearls on the image. I put Kaiser pink rhinestones on the corners of the card background. I don't know what any of the papers are... they are from my stash I've had awhile. I used a new ribbon, Sheer Creations (Michael's ribbon sale) and a dark purple ribbon from Offray. I popped out the image and cake and also the phrase, "Make a Wish". I colored the image not covered with dp with Copics: yg00-Mimosa Yellow, R20-Blush, R02-Flesh, RV000-Pale Purple, BV23-Grayish Lavender, and e71-Champagne. I put Diamond Stickles on the candle flames. I cut the dp out with Nestabilities ovals and mounted it on the same.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Cute Card Thursday #54

This Cute Card Thursday was a color challenge to use citrus colors: hot pink, lime, lemon and orange. I used a hot pink cardstock as the background base of the card (unknown cardstock). The dp is Basic Grey Urban Prairie as are the frog and butterfly. I cut the frog, butterfly and flowers from Cuttlebug dies I have. I layered the flower on the right and topped it with a button. I layered the middle card by using orange in the center. I used a yellow (lemon) ribbon and yellow Kaiser pearls in the upper left corner. I put small black Kaiser pearls for the frog's eyes and the spots on his back. I cut the butterfly twice and layered it to look like it's flying. I placed the flowers over flowers on the dp. The frog is "sitting" on another flower. All the colors are on this card. I rarely use my cuttlebug dies, so this was fun!

Timeless Tuesday go green FTTC9

Well, Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge prompted me to finish this card that has been partially ready to finish for months! I had stamped the image using VersaMark first, then Brilliance Dew Drop ink pads. The image is by Kathy Davis for Inkadinkado. The cardstock is all from DCWV. I had done this originally practicing how to distress the edges of the paper, then I played with VersaMark and with the Dew Drops. then I put eyelets in each corner attaching the image to green cardstock. I had the other two pieces of cardstock ready, but hadn't put it together. I new I wanted a phrase below the image, but didn't know what. I finally, for this challenge, ran the lighter green through Cuttlebug's Swrils embossing folder, used some ribbon that was off something else (don't even remember now) and cut the phrase (I think it's from SU) and mat with Nestabilities and assembled the card! It was perfect for this challenge :)

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!


This set from My Favorite Things is so adorable! This is for MFT's sketch challenge #74. The base of the card is GA Pacific cardstock. I used Basic Grey's Urban Prairie as the background paper and a yellow satin ribbon from Classic Traditions. I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol: light peach, light umber, chocolate, jasmine, lime, teal, hot pink, olive green, canary yellow, non photo blue and pink. I raised both images up on small foam dots. I attahced the phrase to the ribbon with a spiral clip.

That's it! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Basic Grey #28 sketch

This card was made for Basic Grey's sketch challenge #28. The pink, green, and dp is all from Urban Prairie. The image is stamped on GA Pacific cardstock, and the base of the card is also GA Pacific. The image is from my daughter's stash. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol: chestnut, raspberry, lemon yellow, canary yellow, tuscan red, terra cotta, yellow ochre, and goldenrod. In the upper right side are white Kaiser pearls. On the lower left corner are buttons, also on the left corner of the image is a button. I used a Fiskers border punch on the bottom of the pink background paper.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

I {Heart} Sketches SFYTT

I think this little kitty from Great Impressions is adorable! I made this card for I {Heart} Sketches challenge. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol: crimson lake, jasmine, and peacock green. The phrase is from Stampin' Up. The flowers are Prima. I put a little red button in the center. The heart paper is from Creative Memories. The dark pink cardstock is DCWV and the base of the card is GA Pacific. I doodled around the edge of the image to add some interest, and there is velum heart paper over the phrase. Simple card but fun.

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Whiff of Joy #24

I love Willow from Whiff of Joy... gotta get me some more! This is Willow with Umbrella. She is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol: peacock green, beige, chestnut, light peach, sepia, henna, aquamarine, sienna brown, dark green, cool gray 20%, true green, light umber, muted turquoise, mahagony red, and blush pink. She is stamped on GA Pacific cardstock, as is the base of the card. The dp background paper is from Basic Grey's Mellow. The flowers are Prima flowers and the pearls are Kaiser blush. I distressed the Basic Grey background paper and the paper the image is stamped on. I used a Prismacolor pencil around the edge as well. Another image that is fun to color!

Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Copics Color Challenge

This is for Copics color challenge this week to use R22 - light prawn, E47 - dark brown, and B12 - ice blue. I do have R22, but used E33, 35 and 37 for browns; and B02 and baby blue for the blues. As seen in the photo above, I used several Copics to color this picture. I actually enjoy coloring pictures like this! (When I was pregnant with my second child, I didn't sleep well, so I would get up and color in my daughter's coloring book until I felt like I could go to sleep!) This image really reminds me of spring. I love birdhouses, watering cans, flowers, and fences, so I just had to have this stamp by Northwoods. It's a cute image I think. The cardstock is by GA Pacific.
Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
