I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy, Happy, Happy Spring

Greetings from rainy San Diego,

Yes, it doesn't happen often, but occasionally we do get a nice storm.

I decided it was a good excuse to hunker down and stamp this evening and get my MFTWSC60 card done. I'm not sure why the rain inspired this spring themed card.

This little Pure Innocence cutie is colored with Copics and her dress is paper pieced. I matched the bottom border shape with the tab shape on top for balance, and I like the way it looks. After cutting out the flower, I sponged the petals with yellow ink before rolling it into the flower shape.

Here 's a look at the inside:

Stamps: Pure Innocence "My Basket of Eggs" by My Favorite Things
Paper: Taylored Expressions card stock and Crate Paper Patterned papers
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU Melon Mambo, Copics and Spica glitter pens in pink and blue
Other: Die-namics border, tab, letter and flower dies, classic circle Nesties,  pink Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, Lush green brad, sewing machine, the Big Shot and dimensionals

After the rain is done tomorrow, the rest of the week is supposed to be 70 degrees. Ah, back to normal.

Thanks all,
