Springtime Priceless

This is a little springtime card I recently made for a shoe box swap that I will be attending. My friend, Kim, is being kind enough to allow me to attend her demo meetings, even though I'm not part of her down line. She lives close by and since my up line is no longer my up- line, Kim has been kind enough to help me out. The theme for Kim's demo meeting/swap is Spring and I thought this fit the bill. I love these colors together, especially the pink and green. I also really like this stamp set, especially the swirly part. Here is what I used to make this card.

STAMP SETS: Priceless and Happy Everything

PAPER: So Saffron, Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, and Whisper White

INK: So Saffron, Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, and Basic Black

ACCESSORIES: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, silver brad

Spring Time Polka Dots

Here are two more cards I made recently. Sometimes I just impress myself!!! ;) What I really should be doing with my free time is finishing my daughters wedding invitations. They need to be mailed in two weeks. But if there is one thing I can't stand, it is mass producing the same card over and over and over and over and...! Know what I mean?
I love this stamp set and these colors together. The card on the left is going to be sent to my nephew and his wife. They are expecting their first baby any day now. The thing I like most about the Congrats stamp set is that it is versatile. The card on right will be going to a co-worker who will be retiring this year after 30 years of the same school no less. I had the privilege of sharing a classroom with this gentleman when I was first hired at the same school. It was always a pleasure and honor to watch him teach as I arrived at the school with only 6 years of experience under my belt, and at the time he had 24. Talk about watching an expert at work and learning a lot of new tricks to the trade! Anyway, the dsp that goes with these stamp sets is adorable too.
Here is what I used.
STAMPS: Polka Dot Punches, Congrats
INK: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Delicate Dots DSP
PAPER: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, So Saffron
ACCESSORIES: So Saffron twill ribbon
Thanks for looking,
