Spring Forward1

Spring is here and change is in the air.  The trees are blooming, the grass is green and I was happily walking on the beach this morning.  A bit of a cool breeze coming off the ocean, but the sun was bright and the sky a beautiful, clear blue.  Hopefully, my schedule will allow for another visit this week and I’ll try to remember to get a picture to share with you all.

Today’s project was inspired by last week’s Mojo Monday sketch.  I never got to join their challenge, but the sketches always inspire me.  I used some patterned paper from both “Love Blossoms” and “Going Places” DSP Stacks.  The stamp set is “Butterfly Basics”.  I used almost every stamp in the set for this one!   I really do enjoy creating those backgrounds and this stamp set has a few neat stamps that can really inspire your creativity to design a simple collage background.  The sentiment is certainly appropriate for this time of year, don’t you agree?

I thought this card would be a good post for today since there are changes going on over at Stampin’ Up!  Today is a big day… the “Retired Stamp List” is out and it’s time to pull out your catalog and grab what you might want to add to your collection… the retired sets and supplies are only available while supplies last so don’t hesitate.  You can click on the banners below to get all the details.
