Sprinkle each day with kindness *SFYTT*

Last Spring Julee asked me to be a guest designer for Verve Stamps and I couldn't have been more delighted. I recieved some fabulous stamps that I have enjoyed using. I thought it was high time that they saw some ink, especially since they are perfect for spring. These tulips are so fun to color and I especially love cutting them and popping them up for dimension.





This year Easter has sort-of snuck up on me. I haven't created a single Easter card and it looks like it is going to stay that way seeing that Easter is tomorrow. I decided to go with a spring theme and use one of my favorite sentiments of all time. The focal image is from the Verve set called Miracles Blossom, which is on sale I noticed! Yay!







Before I began coloring the images, I thought I should pick the papers I would be using. I decided to use my untouched Pretty Pastels pattern paper. I was thrilled at how well it worked out because I had the matching Copic Markers. I wasn't sure if all of those prints were made to go together, but I thought that they looked nice together so I went with it.

I finished the design off with a few buttons and some Lavender Moon ribbon.

Well...my kids are seriously hungry and so am I, so I better get them fed! I will be back to check out what my Sisters have created!
