You are amazing...

I played with some older Heidi Swapp papers to create this card.  Some papers are timeless and I think this collection is one of them :)

I fussy cut the flowers and adhered then stitched a zig zag in the center of them.  The die cut and stamped sentiment are from My Favorite Things.

I have to head out of town to a doctor appointment so I had a bit of time this morning... I decided to play :)  Here's hoping this bright cheery card, let's mother nature know we are ready for some happy spring sunshine!

I used some Photoplay paper and although it is for little girls... I think this card could be for anyone :)

It had a springy feel so I dug out my OLD Spring stamp set from Technique Tuesday... I don't even think it is available anymore. I then paired it with a PTI die.

Inspired By... China Blue

When I came across these beautiful plates I knew exactly which papers I wanted to play with.  Aren't these such pretty plates?  I would love to have these as my everyday dishes.  Click on photo for source.

How does the photo inspire you?  colors? sketch?  flowers?  patterns?  circles?.... I would love to see and remember... any paper crafting project works for me ;)

I, of course had to use the Floral Boutique by Stampin' Up!  I created a few items and honestly I think I could have kept going!

First up, I used a Silhouette cut to create the little tea cup box.  I will fill it with some leaf tea just as a little pick me up for a friend :)

I then created a simple card to go with it.  I went with the sketch from the layout of the plates and kept it simple just like the photo.  I then stamped a Stamplorations sentiment.  You know me and my stitching ;) 

Then of course I had to go a little more patterned, well because that's me too.... LOL .  Once again some fussy cutting and the stamps are from Stamplorations.  I mounted the cup on foam squares. 

The sketch is from:

Sweet as can be

I have another sweet themed card for you today.  I used the Fruit Stand and Tasty Treat papers from Stampin' UP!
After fussy cutting the peaches from the pattern paper, I stitched them then adhered then to the card.  The top one is mounted on foam squares.  I then die cut the sentiment and stapled it on.  The stamped sentiment has been trimmed then adhered. 
Playing along with a couple of challenges:

Hello Lovely...

Happy Tuesday!  I still love using this paper pack, the white roses just make my heart happy :)  It is the Hello Lovely collection by CTMH.

Once again I fussy cut the flowers and to create the tags, I just trimmed the end of a rectangle.
