So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Spring has Sprung

Spring has Sprung....well maybe...BUT not today!!!! With rain/sleet/snow and tonight we have had lightning and thunder along with snow in a thundersnow! Crazy weather!!!!  Anyway....this was for Penny Black Saturday Challenge 143...Spring has Sprung! The challenge was to do Spring and use Penny Black stamps.

The first one is using Nikki Sivils dp, GKD sweet mango cs and stamped with Penny Black stamps. I colored with copics and Sakura glitter pens. Also used a mustard distress ink. I also used the new Floral Doily Motifs from Spellbinders and the new Fancy Tags Two. I added some ribbon and a bee brad.

I also did another Spring card. This is also for the Penny Black Saturday 143 Challenge and for Stamp TV color challenge -- using GKD sweet mango, wild dandelion and green grass cs. I used SEI dp and die cuts of classic, lacey and scalloped Spellbinder squares. Martha Stewart ladybug punch added some ladybug designs and added some ribbons and ladybugs. Again used Penny Black Stamps and colored with Smooch, Sakura glitter pens and added some yellow and green sprout ink.
