I have made a vow, I'm going to pull out all of my stamps and dies I haven't used yet and make at least one card with each.  That is a tall order.  I have a lot.  I buy them and then store them  I have got to start using them.

I bought this from Crafters Companion at least a year ago:  Sheena Pansy

I colored with Adirondack Alcohol Inks:  Sunset Yellow, Sunshine Orange, Honeycomb, Lemonade, Cranberry, Meadow, Lettuce & Citrus.

Paper from Stampin Up:  Mossy Meadow, Crisp Cantaloupe & Cajun Craze

Lovely Lilacs

Technique Gamsol with color pencils

Image from Stampendous "Lilacs"

I absolutely love this image.  It reminds me of Spring.  We've moved since, but I used to have a large yard with flowering trees and scrubs all over.  This was one of my favorites.  It also reminds me of "Buddlea"  Butterfly Bush.

I bought this image at Crafters Companion - Sheena "Brambles"  

I have had it a while, but just pulled it out.  I can remember as a kid, there was a blackberry field right next to our house.  In the summer we picked them every day.  I wonder how many snakes we were within a few feet of.  Never saw one though.   Hot summer days!!!  FUN
