Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Arielle has a nice springy color palette for us today…and personally, I NEED it!  What do you think:

What a sweet little recipe box!  I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to incorporate these colors into my card, but I remembered my challenge to myself to use some neglected stamps, so I dusted off Bright Blossoms and went to work:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings ColourQ 229 Bright Blossoms Thank You Stampin Up

I thought the SAB embossing folder Decorative Dots worked perfectly with the images….cute match-up!  And Arielle’s Retrosketches sketches always seem to work so well with the ColourQ colors!  I used this week’s:

My sentiment and image are a little off, but hopefully she won’t mind!  Just seeing that pretty little tulip makes me believe that spring really will arrive eventually!


Hope you can play along too!  Check us out at the ColourQ!

Cassidy received a card in the mail from one of my sweet blog readers (thanks, Frenchie!!!):


A little effort to get the flap opened:


But look at the grin after she opened this cute Valentine card—she loved that owl (and so did I!):


Enjoy your day!

Card's a cutie! I need to dust off that stamp set too. It's a fun one.

Love your card design and how you pulled those colors together in such a mod way! :)

Beautiful card! It definitely makes one think of spring. Cassidy definitely lit up at her card. Such a sweetie.

Judi said...

What a great thing to do ...but so like Frenchie, she is so sweet. I think all of us peepers/blog checkers could take a happy hint from this. I am a great grandma and I love the daily adventures you have (YOU & your HUSBAND are real treasures) with your adorable granddaughter. Hey, take a minute and send off a little card to sweet Cassidy or LeAnne.

Great take on that fun and unique sketch! I have been rather absent in blog land of late - too busy making the most of our very wintery winter this year! Thanks so much for visiting - glad to see somebody is still reading!
