Spring

I am so ready for spring...yesterday we were getting some snow flurries! UG. I am done with the cold. I made this light, happy, spring card using the challenge over at 365 Cards. The predominant shape needed to be a circle. I matted a circle over the Label 1 die and chose the super cute trio of circle trees from Kim Hughes line called Spring Trees. You can find this set over at Cornish Heritage Farms. I added some stitching and a MS punched border. I am absolutely loving a new tool I just got which I'm sure many of you have heard about (or have) The Stamp-a-ma-jig. Can I just say SO worth the money when using mounted/ unmounted rubber stamps?! I got the placement of my sentiment, mushrooms and butterfly exactly where I wanted it using this nifty tool. I'm planning to do a little tutorial on it soon...I waited way to long to get this great stamping necessity!

Tomorrow I have some BIG news on the Paper Blooms blog. I am announcing the brand new Design Team!! There will be a giveaway too so please come on over and check us out. I am so excited for this new adventure and would love it if you were all involved! Have a happy Sunday!

This is just wonderful! I agree I am so ready for spring. I love to see cherry layouts - it really helps to endure the rest of winter.
