I have a couple of thank you's to send out today before I get started on my post.
First, did you notice the new look of my blog? My fabulous friend Hayley of Hayley's Paper Garden put together a great new blog header for me to freshen up the look of the blog. I love it! If you are not familiar with the provinces of Canada, the yellow "splotches" are my home province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the purple heart is the town where I am from - how cute is that?! I am seriously, way too in love with the new look. Thank you Hayley!
Also, I wanted to thank the ladies over at Colour Me...! this week for choosing my Lovely Lumberjack card as the Top Pick for their challenge last week. I am honoured! You can see me card HERE.
I don't know about any of you but I am not so patiently waiting for Spring...so I decided it was time to use the new Lotus Blossom stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration catalogue. I had been dying to get my hands and this one and I was not disappointed. It was a really fun set to use and the results are just lovely. Here is my card:
As always, I took my inspiration from a couple of challenges:
1. Colour Me...!
This week's challenge was to use Hello Honey, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow. I, unfortunately, went by memory on the colours and ended up using Crushed Curry instead of Hello Honey - close enough.
2. Mojo Monday
I loved the sketch over at Mojo Monday this week - it was super fun to play along with.
