…until Spring!

Hooray! Of course that’s just the official date of spring on the calendar. Here in Ontario we usually get snow into April but that’s OK. I know that warmer days are coming.

I was playing around with some scraps on my desk and decided to try out a new stamp that I’ve had sitting here, just waiting to be inked. It’s one of the new Hero Arts Clings and my first time trying one out. I have to say I’m hooked. Yummy red rubber and I love how easy it is to use.

Happy Spring

I had bits and pieces of these sweet Jenni Bowlin papers left over from Thursday’s card so I thought I’d put them to good use instead of throwing them out. 1″x4″ size pieces are really not worth putting away. I’m loving the bright happy colors of this Front Porch line and added rows of Stickle dots to the stamped image to highlight the scallops. The stitched butterfly is part of a Printable Pierceable file created for Every Thing Creative. I just printed the template onto some printer paper, cut out the butterfly and laid it over my layer. Simply pierce and then stitch with embroidery floss.
