Taylored Expressions March Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Hellooooo everyone!!!
I hope you are all doing well :)
I am happy to say that all is well here too!!! Yippeee! and just in time for Spring :)

This month's theme is SPRING!!!
When I think of spring, one of the first things that pops into my mind is how green and rich the grass looks and all of the flowers starting to bud and bloom...


I used my "Much Appreciated" Stamp Set
I stamped the stem with Tim Holtz "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink
and then I just had to paper piece the flower with some Memento Tuxedo Ink... 
Trying to use up my scraps of October Afternoon...
and the wood buttons, Ribbon and Hillary CS are from my Key Ingredients March Kit :)

I neeeeed to send out a thank you card to a new sewing friend
and I hope that she loves this next card...


Aren't those lil spools adorable!?!?
They, along with the Ribbon and Lagoon/Maraschino CS, 
also came in this month's Key Ingredients Kit!!!
I paper pieced the dress form my "Sew Happy" Stamp Set,
and then had a bit of fun with my nesties on scraps of Cosmo Cricket DP ;) 

I can't wait to start hopping around!

Enjoy!!!
