Cherry blossom trees are so beautiful...even when all the blossoms fall, it looks like pretty pink snow. We have quite a few on our street & it makes me smile in the morning when I see them. I KNOW Spring is here when they are in bloom...even if the weather isn't completely cooperating. :)
I tried my best to make this into a pretty cherry blossom tree---I love all the twinkle stickers! I was just going to use green & pink but am really glad I added the yellow ribbon & butterflies...it only adds to the happy Spring feeling.
Hope everyone enjoyed the 3 day weekend!

blue mushrooms & an orange bird?! :) Actually, blue mushrooms might scare the b'jeez out of me...but on paper their pretty dang cute. :) I love the colors on this one-bright & cheerful, & I think it's a fun card to just say hello!
BTW-love the Orange Crush Kitchen Dot 4bar cards. Love them. Putting a heart tattoo on my arm for them I love them so. :)

Congrats on a wonderful 7 years in the business...I couldn't be happier for you! :)
In honor of the lucky number 7....I thought I would list my 7 favorite A Muse stamps:
1) Tiny Bird
2) Birch Trees
3) Holiday Shopper
Some of these I use ALL the time & some like the brownstone-I've never used. :) But it makes me SO happy when I look at it--it reminds me of NY, my very favorite place....
In coming up with my 7 faves-I had such a hard time choosing, proving that A Muse does a wonderful job with all their products---everything is fantastic! Happy day to you A Muse! :)
ETA:: Head over to the A Muse blog to participate in a FUN contest for their anniversary!

This card has many of my faves: the little princess girl, the green 4bar card, the Copic color Coral (seriously, pick it up if you don't have it), & the Elzybell sentiment. Of course there are many a princess in the actual Elzybell collection that work with this, but I hadn't used the A Muse girl in a while, so there you have it. :)
I love it when a card comes together in about 10 minutes-easy peasy.
Have a great weekend!

the love affair with the cupcake is TAKING OVER my creative energy! It seems as though the sweet cake is showing up quite a bit on my cards lately-not that I'm complaining. :)
I love these two little buddies, & would love to use them as actual cupcake toppers someday. I used this Elzybell sentiment-not only because the cupcakes are friends, but also because the cupcake & moi are so BFF!!! :)
Now seriously, go eat a cupcake. :)

TOTALLY forgot to post this card yesterday-d'oh! I remember when I was little putting flowers on the neighbors doorsteps, ringing the bell & running...what a happy surprise to receive flowers at your door. Though, as I was 4 or 5-it was probably some crazy dandelion weed I pulled. Oh well, the thought that counts. :)
This little Elzybell flower bouquet is so sweet & versatile-it really could be used for any type of card. I added some twinkle stickers in the middle of the flowers for a little extra somethin'! If I had been thinking-which I wasn't-I could have made the "Happy day" sentiment into "Happy may"-nuts. Maybe next year!
Did you have fun shopping yesterday? :)

This little girl is from the new Celebration Kids Clear set---& I"m pretty much in love with it. Couldn't be cuter. :)
