Hurray for Spring!!

Good Morning!! I had the wonderful pleasure of stamping with my friend Melody last week, we had so much fun!!  Melody and I don't get together as often as we'd like to. When we do finally schedule a day, well we end up talking so much we don't get much creating done.

In order to combat the lack of "creating" during our visits, we've come up with a few challenges for ourselves. This past week our challenge was to pick a stamp set we've purchased but never really used or found ourselves  disliking. We were to also pair this unwanted stamp set with retired dsp that needs to be used up.   What a great idea!! I'll be showing the cards we made over the next few days, I was so happy with the results.

Today's card was my contribution to the day, using Fabulous Flowers stamp set. I loved this set when it was in the catalogue, bought it and used it only once. Its not that I don't love it, but I've never felt overly inspired by it.

I do love this card though, the pairing of Basic Grey & Blushing Bride are fabulous together. What a great colour the In Colour Blushing Bride is, so very different from the other SU! pinks.

Thanks so much for dropping  by and I hope your Spring Day is as nice as ours is supposed to be!! I can hardly believe we are seeing such beautiful days now, the grass is greening up, the plants are growing above ground now and it just feels HAPPY out there!! We've had such a long winter, its really a blessing to enjoy the warm weather of spring, even if its almost mid May!!
