Everything outside is finally really green here in Pennsylvania and looking more like Spring!  Pretty soon I'll be mowing the lawn. 

With all this green on my mind . . . I was inspired to make a botanical looking card. I kept it simple with limited stamping and adding sequins for a little bling.  I used a die to edge the white card stock from my absolute favorite set right now, Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 (MFT). I'm thinking I could use this design as a sympathy card too. 

Enjoy your day and happy stamping!

Jar of Love

If you are a regular here to my blog, you know I have an obsession with jars. I collect antique canning jars and own probably every jar stamp and die that is out there. Well, not really . . . but probably more than what I need. A jar is a jar right?! Noooooo! Lol!

Jar of Love from Stampin Up is my favorite set of jar stamps and dies. I love the sizes, sentiments, and the little touches you can add from this set. The possibilities are endless.
