This card was made 10 years ago by former DT member Carolyn Hurst using our Pussywillow large stamp.   I love this card with it’s beautiful pressed and dried flowers.

Yup – you can get a free die – you just have to buy 3 other items too!  The lowest priced item in your cart is free.  Why not buy 8 items and get 2 of them free!?!  Special good through May 28th.

Flowers! Flowers! Flowers!

It’s May so of course it’s time to focus on flowers.   You can double dip with two Flower Challenges right now.   Serendipity Stamps is sponsoring the CASology challenge this week and the cue is – you guessed it – FLOWER!  Make your CAS card with a Serendipity Stamps image and you can also enter it in the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog’s challenge – FLOWERS!

Can You Resist Flowers?

When you pop over to the SSCB you’ll see that our DT’s challenge this week is to create designs that include Flowers AND a resist technique.   Each member chose a different resist technique – check it out for lots of great ideas and inspiration!

This little CAS card was made using our Wildflower and For You Small stamps.   I colored the rubber with aqua crayons, spritzed it with water, stamped, and then added a bit more color where needed.

Spring Plummage

1219-Goldfinch - Anya Schrier

I love watching the little Goldfinches at my birdfeeder change over from their drab little gray-yellow selves to brilliant yellow – it all happens over just a few days!   And you can tell they are just so proud of themselves!

Around our home we are also lucky enough to have nesting Blue Birds and Indigo Buntings.   Bright sapphire blue gems that flit through the spring redbud and dogwood blossoms.

You can color our little Goldfinch whatever color you like.   Orange and he’s a Baltimore Oriole.   Red and he’s a “purple” finch.  Brown and he’s a house sparrow.

Or, how about coloring him in Shades Of Grey and entering our challenge – you still have a couple of days left!
