think spring

We still have a bit of snow on the ground here in New Jersey, and still have to get through March... but, spring should be right around the corner! However, we always seem to get a snowstorm or two in April... Today's card features Lockhart Stamp Company Bouquet, to keep my thoughts of spring from vanishing!! Image was stamped in black ink on white cardstock, main image colored in with markers. Flowers were simply colored in with one light blue, then detailed with a little darker blue. The pink buds were just dotted with a coral marker - easy image to color in quickly! Memory Box Blue Poppy card base, and matching cardstock was used for the small light blue strip. I stamped the long floral rose image and trimmed to the size needed. The blue buds and the buds on the light blue strip were colored in with a glitter pen. Thank you for stopping by!

Your items are beautiful! Have you ever considered selling on etsy.com? The listing fees are far less than that of eBay, and they don't charge final value fees either. Check it out... and if you decide to make the switch, please send me an email link to your store. s l a w s o n @ g a s p u m p s . c o m... without all the spaces of course.
