Colors of Spring Challenge

Hello and Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Post, this weeks theme is "Colors of Spring".  I love Spring and I love all the new spring papers and colors.  Before I tell you what I used, I have to tell you how wonderful designing for Laura is.  I did her a favor once or twice and she sent me the MFT's Blueprints 1 die-namics as a thank you!  Can you believe it?  I was so over the top excited, I had to use it right away.  I so wanted this set of die-namics and I will treasure them and use them always!  Thank you so much Laura!  She also sent me my favorite card she created.  I want to take a pic and post in a separate post.  sniff, sniff, I am so touched. 

I used the following items on my card:

Die-Namic Oval Stax 1 and 2
MFT PI little Gardener
Die-namic vintage flourish
Die-namic grass
Blue Prints 1
Die-namic Pretty Posies
Memento Black
MME papers

I made this card this past weekend.  I love this cute little pure innocent girl.  She has become my favorite and so you will see her more than this post, for sure!  lol. 

We had a very productive weekend.  Saturday we went through all of our closets and tossed the stuff that no longer fits.....I figure if I lose the weight, I will reward myself with new clothes, lol.  I did keep a few but not too many.  My husband did the same thing and we went through my sons closet.  Then we loaded up the truck and took them down to be donated.  My husband logged each article in his Turbo Tax program and calculated we donated $1500.00 in clothes, which will give us a $400.00 deduction next year!  Wow!  Yeah, we so needed to go through our closets, lol. 

The next day we had to take our dog in to the vet.  Joe was planning on cutting back the grass in the "way back" area on Sunday.  Well, Murphy's Law you know, and sure enough, our dog was whimpering and whining and yep, little goat-head weed stuck way back in her ear.  So off to the vet and they had to sedate her to get it out.  And yes, my dear Joe whacked every blade of grass and weed back there, lol.  So I feel lucky to have gotten this made, lol. 

I cannot wait to see your colors of Spring on the Challenge uploads! 

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!
