Springtime - Spring Cards
If your eyes are not swollen with allergies right now, you might enjoy this little tree that is blooming on the front of this card. Branch Out is one of my all-time favorite stamp sets, and it could very well be because of that tiny little birdhouse. My dad always had a bird feeder and several birdhouses spread around the yard when I was growing up, and still does! So, when I see a birdhouse, it grabs my heart. The sentiment, is from Bella's Blooms and is just perfect for Spring........unless you are sneezing.
Sometimes, I pull out stamps and use them so they won't get lonely. (Don't tell anyone, but they talk to me too!) For instance, the Polka Dot background stamp. Now that we have an awesome Polka-Dot Embossing Folder for the Big Shot, I forget to use this old stand-by. Yes, it's retired...pity. But I still love it. The butterfly is from the Flight of the Butterfly, a very versatile set, as well. I'm hearing voices that say you should show your stamps some love too!
