You're Inspiring! for Easter

Happy Tuesday! Well it's beginning to feel and look a bit like Spring is trying to make an early emergence, which is quite strange for this area...but I will take it, and that is what inspired me to share this card with you as Easter is upon us and I just love this new stamp set found in the Spring Occasions catalog.
One of my most favorite flowers are the Daffodils,they're so cheery and happy in their sunny yellow "coats" and their amazing strength to emerge from under winters blanket at the first hint of Spring. And of course, hence my love for this stamp set. To make this stamp set even more awesome, is that it is great line image art for coloring, making it a perfect set to use Stampin' Blends to color, and that is just what I did! I pulled out my Daffodil Delight markers, the light Old Olive and the light Calypso Coral.
I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in the leaves with the light Old Olive. I then colored the flowers with the light shade of Daffodil Delight and added the dark shade inside the trumpet and at the base of the trumpet and petals. Then, to add depth and a pop of color, I added the light Calypso Coral to the petal bases and slightly up the trumpet base. For the full tutorial PDF, download it here. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I have. It truly is one of my favorite stamp sets and I am so ready to think Spring!

A Very Special Birthday Card

Happy Easter! What are your Easter plans? I'm making dinner for hubby and I since this is his first Easter off in 11 years. As a nurse, I have always worked Easter, then once I entered the world of management and was able to have weekends and holidays off, hubby entered the world of Corrections, working weekends and holidays. Oh well, it just makes us appreciate the ones we do get to spend together.
Anyhoo, today, I want to share a very special birthday card created by a friend of mine, Nancy Woeltje, for her mom; and she agreed to allow me to share it with all of you. She used the Number of Years stamp set from the Spring Occasions catalog.

I love how she incorporated the photos into the card. Talk about a personal touch! I can only imagine the sheer joy her mom felt when she received this beautiful card showcasing special moments throughout her life. And what a great way to showcase this awesome stamp set!
Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look. Please feel free to leave a comment below and let Nancy know how terrific this special card really is. In the meantime I want to wish you all a very blessed Easter and I will see you back here on Tuesday!
