With Love ...

Hello sweeties!  I hope you're having a perfectly fabulous weekend full of family time and some stampy time too!  I'm so excited to share a tiny little creation I designed today for the Waltzingmouse Stamps February 2012 Blog Party ... 'Spring'!


I'm so ready for spring here in NC ... we're having a perfectly gorgeous day today -- full of sunshine and temps in the 60's!  My little pink cherry tree in our backyard is in full bloom with the prettiest little pink blossoms!  It just makes my heart smile when I look at it!!  Nothing means more to me than pretty spring blooms -- a sense of renewal, everything fresh, clean and new!


I used a combination of Waltzingmouse Stamps for the sentiment on this card from the Compliments of the Season and Vintage Ornaments stamps sets!!  I love how these traditionally holiday sets can be re-purposed for additional projects throughout the year!


I also was inspired by the current Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #85 -- rotated sideways!!  And lastly, I swooned when I saw the current ColourQ #124 inspiration palette, so I used Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Cool Caribbean, Very Vanilla and White in my design!!


Thanks so much for visiting with me today!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and be sure to make some stampy time for yourself!!

Hugs!
