Welcome! Happy Hump Day!

Now, I don't want to brag (said jokingly)...but it will be in the high 50's here today. That's right, read it and weep. LOL! Here in Massachusetts that screams SPRING. Sure, in Florida it screams BRRRRRRRRRRR......but here, in March, that's flip flop weather! LOL! Have I mentioned that March is a particularly hard month here? (Maybe once or twice...) We so badly need and want spring...but usually winter isn't done with us yet. Tomorrow won't be as warm, then we will be back in the 40's. But today: high 50's and sunshine! I better start looking for my bikini. (YIKES! Me in a bikini: that's a scary thought!) LMBO!

So yesterday I received a package from Kelly. The lovely & talented owner of the Kl SNS store...inside was this adorable stamp set from CC Designs' Gingersnaps line called Spring Things. Perfect timing! How CUTE is this set?!! This is my first set by CC Designs...and me likey! They come already on EZ mount and in a cute little CD tin. (perfect for altering)

Kristen had bought me this pad of Making Memories paper and I couldn't wait to use it...but I didn't have any Copics that coordinated. :( So I layered colors to acheive colors as close as I could with the Copics that I do have. So her shirt was achieved by layering R20 and Y21. Her pants by layering BG10 and G20. I used E53 and E0000 for the bunny.
I used the paper that I thought I would not likely use on the front of the card to polish off the inside of the card. (shown to the right)

I have to run...Maeve is hanging all over me just screaming and it makes it difficult to try and post a cheery little blog post! LOL! Aaaaahhh....age 2 is so much fun! Like with the month of March it is hard, in between a baby and a "kid"...They are so cute and funny when they are 2 years old. They learn so much. But they are independent in too many ways and cranky! LOL!

Have a Sunshiney Day!!

Love it!! The colors are so yummy, the paper is beautiful and the image is SO adorable. I will have to add it to my list of wants from the store. Fabulous job layering your colors to get the color you wanted. I love stitching on cards. I have just been lazy lately and haven't added any. I need to get back to it.
