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 6 on the Pals Hop – Diane Roberts at Score at Four and a Quarter. 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.

Today, I’m welcoming Spring with the Bloomin Marvelous stamp set from Sale-A-Bration. I chose the flowers and the hummingbird who are there “for each other”, as the sentiment says. This is just a pretty card to send to a friend to celebrate Spring. The colors are so festive and inviting!

The card base and mat are Very Vanilla with a So Saffron banner across the card. The banner is embellished with strips of Tea For Two Designer Series Paper. I stamped the flowers with So Saffron ink and the Hummingbird is stamped in Early Espresso. The leaves are stamped with Lucky Limeade (some are stamped off once).


The detail in these stamps is just beautiful, and I really had fun with the gorgeous colors.
