Stampin' Pretty Pals March Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the March Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to share new ideas and projects to get you ready for spring.
You should have just left stop number 24 on the Pals Hop - ez peasey cards  with Shannon Jaramillo.  If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.  
For my card I decided to use the soft colors of So Saffron, Very Vanilla and a pop of boldness using Island Indigo.  Spring to me is all about flowers!!  They're the first signs of life after a long cold winter.  Here's my project below:

The flower I did with a combination of the Daisy Die #2 (retired) and the Boho Blossoms Punch.  What's wonderful about this card is you can use any flower die you have from the Blossom Party Original, the Fun Flowers Bigz L or the Blossom  punch.   The DSP paper is from "Tea for Two" from our Spring Catalog.  Love, love, love this paper!!!  I then stamped my "Hello" from "Lacy & Lovely" with Early Espresso then punched it out using the Postage Stamp.  Last to add a pop of color, I used the "Distressed Dots" pad with my Island Indigo stamp pad and off I went!!  What fun!!!  

I hope you enjoyed my card!!  As always, I love to hear from you!!  
The next stop is Penny Nichols at Seirra Stampin!, stop number 26 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope to see you next month!

Mojo Monday #284 - Postage Due

What a wonderful week this is going to be!!!  It's Spring Break here in 
San Antonio, it's in the mid 70's with cool nights 
and we have a fabulous sketch to play with today!!  Woo hoo!!!  
You can't help but to be happy with those odds!!!  
Today's card is for my sister in West Virginia.  Her birthday is Friday!!!  I was going through my stamp sets pondering which one to use and saw this set "Postage Due" from Stampin' Up.  I bought this set a long time ago, but for one reason or another, I have not used it yet.  I love, love, love it too!!!  I began this card with the intention of using neutrals with Midnight Muse and Cherry Cobbler.  Well......that didn't happen!!  LOL!!!  Here is my card below:

I just fell in love with the monochromatic look and feel of the card.  It's warm and comforting with a tea cup, a bicycle and thoughts of Paris.  What could be better?  Anyway, I hope my sister is able to look into the card and dream for just a few minutes around the activity of two teenage boys, the ever romping lab running after the boys and the husband who lives in his shop with his tools as he's trying to finish the basement!!  
Calm and piece is what she needs!!!  LOL!!!  

All of my supplies are listed below.
