Flowers Flowers Flowers!!!

What makes me feel better about trying to get through the rest of winter? The thought of spring! So I happily entered this weeks Humble Pie Challenge - FLOWERS! I chose the adorable CCDesigns stamp Leisl and her Wheelbarrow, which I picked up at The Town Scrapper last summer. I haven't had the chance to ink her up yet and thought this was the perfect occasion! Be sure to visit the Humble Pie Stamps Blog and check out The Bakers' wonderful creations! Also, Phebe still has her amazing sale going on right now until February 14th, click on The Town Scrapper icon on my side bar for more info!
I coloured her using my copic markers. I tried to pick colours to match the adorable My Minds Eye dp that I've had in my stash, sittin there, just waiting for the perfect time to use it! I stamped the image twice and cut out her 'stickled' wing, curled the end and glued it on top of the other one to give it some dimension. The teeny tiny flowers I've also had in my stash forever, were originally white but also coloured them with my copics to match the colours chosen. I added tiny pearls to the centres and piled them in the wheelbarrow! The cute sentiment is a Humble Pie stamp which goes just perfect with this theme! I used my Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch, some stitched ribbon and a button to finish it all off! This card was sooo much fun to make!

Here's hopin' for an early spring, darn that silly groundhog!!!


  1. Aw bright and springy!! I love it! I'm a big fan of the Swiss Pixies too! I must say, that I adore that border's on my "gotta have it" list.

    This layout is perfect!!
