ETA: For some annoying reason, Blogger put my post into "draft" form instead of "scheduled" as I told it to. It's so annoying when that happens. Sorry for the break in links - hope you enjoy the hop!!
The day is finally here!! The first ever Waltzing Mouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop! If you arrived at my blog in your daily blurfing and you want to enjoy some wonderful spring goodies, then the Blog Hop starts at the Waltzing Mouse Stamps blog HERE. If you've arrived at my blog from Lee's blog, then you're in the right place!!
I just love spring, don't you?! So, when Claire said she wanted our theme to be "spring" I jumped at the chance to play along. I immediately thought of the sweet images contained in the new "Spring Baskets" stamp set that I just received in the mail a few weeks ago. Oh my gosh, this set is chock full of darling images, but my fave definitely has to be this sweet flower bouquet image. It reminded me so much of what is typically the first sign of spring in Washington - primroses. Right?!! I cut the basket template (from a template I downloaded from Papertrey Ink) out of Kraft CS, and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Retro Diamonds embossing folder. I thought it represented a fun basket weave. I stamped the flower bouquet three times on white CS, colored them up with my Copics, and then cut them out. I adhered them to the basket template with pop dots, and then added buttons and self-adhesive pearls for the centers. Wouldn't it be so fun to get a sweet basket of primroses like this?!
That's it for me! Tisha Ann has more delicious spring goodies to share with you, and is the next stop on the Hop! Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope that your spring arrives where you live very soon!
