Inspired by Stamping April Blog Hop - Day Two!!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome!!  I managed to get some crafty time in today to make a card for the second day of Design Team shares for the April Inspired by Stamping Hop!  I'm feeling good today ... a bit stiff and sore in my back and tummy ... I probably overdid it yesterday making two cards and walking up and down the stairs ... BUT, it feels SO GOOD to be doing what I love again -- yippiee!!!  It's been 2 1/2 weeks since my hysterectomy and I'm making recovery progress each day now!

Today's card came together effortlessly using the sweet Big Wishes set from Inspired by Stamping!

A couple of pretty patterned papers, some dies, a snipett of vintage lace and some pretty blooms complete this bright and cheery little greeting card!!

You won't want to miss a single stop on the rest of the Design Team Hop today ...

... lots more yummy inspiration!

And don't forget, Joanna is hosting a 20% off selected merchandise moving sale PLUS free shipping Friday and Saturday over at the Inspired by Stamping Shop!  Happy shopping :)


Challenges for this card:
Color Throwdown #187 - lavender, saffron, celery, chocolate
Top Tip Tuesday #74 - spots and dots
Simon Says Stamp - April showers bring spring flowers

Very sweet card... as I am sitting here waiting on an offer we just made on a house yesterday and I open your site up and see this gorgeous card that looks like the window to my "hopefully" new house!! Thanks for the inspiration... I might have to try something like this for my New Home announcements!! Take it easy on yourself... although I think doing what you love is also VERY healing!
Crafty Hugs,
