Friends and Springtime . . .

I am trying with all my might to stamp spring into staying!! I swear I never know WHAT season it is here! It was up in the upper 70's low 80's during the first of last week, and now we are lucky to get up into the 40's and 50's!! Sigh . . .

I did this card for yesterday's sketch challenge on SCS - SC226. And guess what??? Roxie (the challenge hostess) used a card I made back in February as the "sample" for the challenge! I was so excited when I saw that!! Then I knew, of course, that I HAD to make a card for the challenge, too!

I also think it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to make an ugly card with Pocket Silhouettes! I have so much fun creating with it every single time I pull it out! This card just makes me happy 'cause it gives me hope that Spring might actually be here to stay . . . for a minute . . .

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Polka Dog bg
Paper: Always Artichoke, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Eyelet border punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, paper distressing tool, Eyelet texture plate, white taffeta ribbon, pop-up glue dots

Hey Wendy, Beautiful card and congratulations on being chosen for the sample card for the sketch challenge (which I didn't get to play in). I've been so busy this week, that stamping has taken a back seat. My poor new Wizard is sad cause I haven't played with it this week.
Thanks for sharing this lovely card.

I loved this card so much I CASEd it! I'm thinking of using it as a prototype for a card swap. Pocket Silhouettes is such a pretty and versatile stamp set I'm sure I'll be using it over and over again. Thanks for all your inspiration, Wendy! I wished we lived closer so I could meet you IRL.

What a gorgeous card....BTW just have to comment on your spotlight in the Stampin' Success....your stamp space is awesome!!! I wish I had 1/4 of your space. I have office where I store my stamps and supplies but have to stamp in the kitchen or the diningroom....
