TESC155 - Thinking of You!

Happy Spring! Wow! I can't believe Spring is already here! It's been gorgeous outside the last couple of days so I knew I had to create a card using fun Spring colors for this week's challenge. The perfect set to coordinate with Spring is TE's beautiful Friendship Blooms set.  I love all the different pretty flower combinations you can create with this set.  I paired this set up with the Thinking of You sentiment from another great spring set Garden Party Critters.  To create the main image I stamped the stem & leaves portion with green chalk ink and stamped the flowers with a lavender chalk ink.  I added some clear gems to the centers for sparkle.  I really enjoyed the simple stamping and the card came together so quickly.

Ready to join in on the fun?  Don't forget, Taylor is on the look out for the next Featured Stamper.  It could be you!  You also have a chance to win some great TE prizes, so be sure to head on over to Taylor's Blog or the TE Forum over at SCS for the details.  Can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to hop on over and visit my TE Sketch Crew buddies along with our fabulous Featured Stamper to see their lovely creations:

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Hello Friends!!! Happy St. Paddy's Day!  I couldn't wait to share with you this fun Lawn Fawn card.  I created my little Leprechaun using the face and body portion of the Gnome from the Gnome Sweet Gnome set and added the hat from the Hats Off to You set.  I really love the new Bright Side Collection of papers and the 2 green patterned papers coordinated perfectly for this St. Paddy's Day card.  This little Gnome is just a perfect image to create lots of other characters.  He's just so cute and fun!  Hope you all have a fab day today and be sure to sport your green!

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Hello Friends! It's time for another wonderful Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge! Hope you all have been having a great week and are ready to kick off your weekend by playing along with us.  I love this week's fun sketch and since Spring is so close I decided to use the adorable Garden Party Critters set for this week's sketch.  I paired up the set with some pretty papers from Echo Park's This & That collection.  I colored with butterflies with Copics and added Stardust Stickles for sparkle.  A fun and girly Birthday card ready for my stash.
