Hello, and welcome to my blog on this cold, snowy, windy day!! I hope that's not the weather scenario where you are, but for me, that's the case!! Inside, making cards is where I'll happily find myself until warms up, and it looks like I may be here for a while!! *wink* There's lots of excitement today, and not only with the weather, but with Sweet -n Sassy Stamps! Yep!! Today is release day!!! Woohoo!! I'm celebrating with a card for Spring. I know, I know... what a day to do that, but for me, this is the perfect day! I can let my imagination take me to a warm, Spring day with the daffodils blooming, and the sun shining bright. THAT'S where I want to be!!!! I love snow at Christmas, and we were thrilled with a white Christmas this year, but after Christmas, I'm perfectly fine for it to all go away, and stay away until the NEXT Christmas. Hmmmm... I guess someone didn't get that memo?!! LOL!!!
This card was made with one of the 6 new stamp sets that are being released today at SNSS. Stop by their store, where you will find this beautiful stamp set, along with two other Birth Month Flower sets, illustrated by the very talented Leah Cornelius. You will also find the Melody of Love stamp set, illustrated by our newest artist, Rachael Zimmerman, along with two adorble sets, Love You This Much, & Eskimo Kisses both illustrated by Korin Sutherland. You can pick up the entire set of new releases for only $40.00, or you can buy induvidually or mix and match your sets. Whatever you decide, I know you will have lots of stamping pleasure and make many, many, beautiful things with your new Sweet -n Sassy Stamps.
For this card, I followed the sketch challenge for this week over at SCS. I colored the image with my SU inks and an aquapainter/blender pen. The paper is from a stack of Stampin' Up! DSP that I've had for along time, and I kept the embellishments simple with brads, and grosgrain ribbon. Now that's a stretch for me, because you know I LOVE to bling things out, but I just couldn't do it to this card. The image is so perfect and elegant all by itself, that I didn't think it needed a lot of my "extras:". I hope you like it as much as I've enjoyed sharing it with you.
May you have a warm and wonderful day, filled with things that you love. Thanks for stopping by today, and make it a great day by stamping something!!
