Spring Posies

Hello my friends!  I've been a busy teacher bee this week, subbing all over the place in my town.  I am so happy to get some work!  In between gigs, I was able to make a few clean-and-simple spring cards to share with you today.

What made these particularly easy is that the floral/leaf die cuts were already in my Scrap Boxes, just waiting to be paired together.  


All I needed was a fabulous sentiment to create this set of cards, and I used one from Flowers Bloom by Inspired By Stamping.


There are 6 oh-so-lovely sentiments (as well as the flower images) in this set, and I rely heavily upon it.  :-)


Each flower got a touch of iridescent glitter glue.  Just a smidgen.


I'm glad I had several of these chrysanthemum die cuts on hand, and they came in different colors: deep plum, periwinkle, and lilac.


Challenges:


Thanks for letting me share my stuff with you today!  I hope you are doing well in your little corner of the world.  :-)  I hope to do some blog visiting soon.

Beautiful die cuts and the font on that sentiment is sooooo pretty. Love the purple base on the first card.

Glad you're getting in some time with a job.

Lady Bird was a woman after my own heart with her campaign to beautify the country. You've brought a little spot of beauty to my living room today with these pretties. Love them both!
