IB12 Fresh Spring

Happy Thursday, peeps!  We have a two-hour delay today because of the's pretty, but it sure throws a monkey wrench in plans we make, LOL!  Anyway, it's time for another Inspired By challenge and this week there is a prize up for grabs!  Woohoo!  You can go to the IB blog to check it out!!!  And here's my bright, cheerful, springy creation for your perusal:

And here is the challenge photo that Laurel chose for us:

SO pretty!  I couldn't resist using this cute little Penny Black chick with his daffodil "shade"...I stamped him in Stazon Black and used Daffodil Delight and Hello Honey inks to watercolor him in!  My papers are from My Mind's Eye and some retired SU in Pacific Point.  I added a few little speckles, some sequins from my stash and a pretty yellow grosgrain ribbon:

My sentiment is from Technique Tuesday...and I sure could use some "fresh sights of spring"!!!

Finally, I added a little bee on the honeycomb paper, just for's from Jar of Love, which I fussy-cut, although I realized after the fact that I have a die for it!!  Duh!

If you've been thinking about joining our challenge, this would be a great week to do so!  Check out what the others created at the Inspired By'll be wowed!  

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Such a fresh, springy card and I love the sentiment, too! No sight of spring here in NY, not sure how much snow we got but it looks like about a foot. How did you make out in PA? Stay safe and warm today, my friend!

LeAnne, I want daffodils! and our Finches to turn yellow again! Your card is just a wonderful breath of Spring!

What a cute stamp set and a delightful card. The little bee adds that something special but I really think he's a firefly :-) We are having cool weather here...high of 70 today. So sorry you got that snow dumped on you again. Your girls are just beautiful.

Oh what a cutie she is and she looks so happy with her big ol' daffodil! This is adorable LeAnne!

Hi Leanne,
Beautiful card. Can you double check the name of the Penny Black chick with daffodil stamp for me? i have a customer asking for it after seeing your card, but the "Spring Joy" name you give is actually a bunny holding tulips. I've been searching every way I can and I can't come up with what stamp this is.
Thanks for your help.
