SOL April Wish Definition Card
Sharing some cards I did for The {Stamps} Of Life and their April extra sets. The three sets are: dictionary4me, princess4life and cars2drive. All three sets are lovely on their own but work wonderfully with Stephanie's other sets too. Hope you enjoy my little preview. Keeping this short and sweet as I am "down" with a very nasty stomach virus. (You might even want to spray this post with Lysol!!!) Wink. :) I'm determined to outlast the thing but right now it is winning. :)

Happy Tulips Card

Happy Tulips Card
Have a quick post for you before I turn in for the night. Hoping I can type this before I fall asleep. Today was a busy day and I am super tired. :) Tonight's card features stamps by Market Street Stamps, a frame by Sizzix and patterned paper by Prima Marketing. I based the card on a sketch over at the Papertake Weekly Challenge #54. Whew, I "think" I made it before nodding off. :) Have to get up early and plant lots of flowers. I made a trip to Lowe's this afternoon and came home loaded with flowers, flowers, flowers. :) Thanks for dropping by and visit again soon. I might even have some pictures of the flowers I'm going to plant tomorrow. :)

No April's Fool Cards

SOL April Home Sweet Home Card
It's no April Fool joke that today is new stamp release from The {Stamps} Of Life. This month's set is a cute one called houses4us. I'm going to share two cards I whipped up with it. ;) Go over to the {Stamps} Of Life gallery too to see what the other design team gals did. There is some awesome work this month.
SOL April New House Congrats Card
If you noticed I took a "little" break from my blog and wondered why, I'll confess I had a case of "spring fever." :) I've been busy getting things ready for lots of flowers outside. I've been planting seeds (inside) for many different flowers. This is the first time I've done this and it has been so much fun! You should see how excited I get when they first "peek" out of the soil. I had saved those foam egg cartons all winter. Use a paper piecer to poke some hole and fill them with seed
starter dirt. Mist the dirt, sprinkle your seeds, lightly cover and mist again....and then wait. Most of my seeds have sprouted in four days! :) I'll try to remember and take pictures later of the flowers!!!! I also try and post more cards on my blog this month! :)
