Spring Blossoms Galore!

Good Morning! Its a cloudy, kind of drab day here in Alberta today. A good day to finish up a bit of laundry, do some vacuuming and then Stamp & Sew!!!! I have been dividing my time between stamping & sewing, enjoying both equally. I've got a really cute Market bag that I'll be posting soon to my other blog, be sure to check it out!
Today my stamping post uses the wonderful Branch Out stamp set. Wow!!! Do I ever enjoy using this set, its so fun and feels so creative. I've stamped this image with Spring Blossoms but also had some fun stamping it with Autumn colours, various Greens for a Summer Card and I did some Winter images as well. Its such a gorgeous image and I have even more ideas I want to try out just using the bare tree image. Stay tuned! I used Stampin' Pretty's card for my inspiration. I love Mary's style in card creating, its always so fresh! Does that make any sense? :-) Be sure to check out her blog, its wonderful. My computer won't let me set up a link here, its being quite fussy lately, so please check out her link on the side bar, and her card is a May contribution.
Hope you have a great weekend and find some creativity time for yourself in there! :-)
