A Little Touch of Spring

Do you think if I keep making springy/flowery cards that I can help inspire Mother Nature a little??? I know spring is supposed to include "showers", but I am seriously ready for more sun and less precipitation!! How 'bout you?? (I know I keep harping on about this lately, but I swear this winter has lasted an ETERNITY!!)

For today's Free for All challenge over on SCS I decided to make the theme pretty broad - so I chose "How Does Your Garden Grow?" I figure that the gallery will be lit up with sunshine, flowers, and happiness, right??? I got this little adorably darling Pure Innocence stamp set just this week ... I think this little gardener is soooo stinkin' ca-YOOT!! I used to wear pigtails when I was little ... it just makes me remember those carefree childhood days!

Stamps: Pure Innocence - Blooming Good Day (MFT)
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: Black Brilliance, Copic Markers
Accessories: Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon, MFT Decorative Doily Die, Itty Bitty Punch, Pearl Stickers, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Dimensionals

This sample was super quick and super easy!! Both the patterned paper and stamped frame image are going to be available in SU's catalog when it comes out this summer ... can't WAIT for that! New catalogs are always so much fun. But, they are expensive, too ... 'cause I end up wanting/"needing" so much new rubbah!!! What's a stamper to do if not just cave in??

Stamps: Four Frames, Pocket Silhouettes (Sentiment)
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Paisley Prints DSP, Whisper White, Marina Mist
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Small Oval Punch, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Pearl Stickers, Dimensionals

And don't forget that the Control Freaks are busy making some fabulous new and inspiring things for our Blog Tour this month ... which doesn't "officially" start 'til Sunday (the 20th) ... but I'll betcha if you come back tomorrow night you won't be disappointed!!

Later, 'gators!!
