What inspires you?


It's easy to tell what inspired this card, right? Yep, the beautiful bouquet of daffodils. They were calling my name yesterday from my flower bed. I absolutely love when spring time comes around and Mother Nature wakes up the earth. These daffodils were the first sign of spring at my house....oh and this beautiful Meadowlark that sings on my fence each day...and my blooming Bradford Pear trees.

So if you need some new ideas, spring time offers a beautiful array of new colors, flowers, birds and much more to inspire your creative side. And don't just create those cards, mail them off to a friend. You don't need a reason to send a card!

Stamps from Paper Trey Ink, patterned paper from Anna Griffin, SU! solid cardstock

Tip of the day: Having a little trouble lining up acrylic words on your stamping block? Me too! Place the words inkable side down on your worksurface, the flat surface will be facing you. Then pick up the words with your clear, acrylic block. Go to the next word if you are creating a phrase. I found that this allows the words to lie straight while on the worksurface, instead of being applied wavy or crooked by hand.
