it's beautiful! love that stamp set


I too dream of Spring and I love the color combo.
I use it often myself even tho I pride myself on being into earth tones:}
Now where/when do I learn what to keep and what to throw away?? That part still eludes me!

I love your card!! It definitely reminds me of Spring, though I am really still enjoying winter! I love the cold and snow...I actually wish I lived in southern maine :-) You have a wonderful blog!!



Erika- How did you create the coloring on the glossy? It's nice. almost like a 2 step stamp.. but not quite..

spill the secret lady!

lovely card



LOVE this card! I've seen quite a few cards done with this set and the stamps just didn't do it for me. . . but I really, really like how you used them here. And you're right. . . this would be a gorgeous Easter card!! Thanks Erika!!

Geez.. I wrote a comment for this earlier...wonder where it went?! And, I just know I wrote something very witty! LOL

Lovely card Erika ! I often have to walk away from whatever I'm working on..not happy with it but then when looking at it later , it usually seems ok.

Ok...back to chores !

Geee.... I wish all my *mistakes* looked this beautiful {{grin}}. The colours are my favorites, and the flower images look like you've spent hours trying to get a "washed watercolour" appearance.

And of course, your "Quote" for the day is ideal :o) !*!Beautiful work Erika!*!


I loved this card and it really gave me a ton of inspiration to create three cards with this set using the chalks, which I haven't picked up in a long time.

Thanks for making such beautiful cards for all of us to see and be inspired by.

What fun spring colors...how could you ever think this was a mistake.....I know what you mean though...sometimes distance from a projects gives great perspective! Beautiful card...

Mary C. Anderson

I have no idea what mistake is was that you made! Your card is so pretty Erika and certainly does remind me of spring. :)
