So how come you never have a Brussels sprout stamp in your stash when you need one? (I actually know the answer to that question...I'm assuming I'd never make a card with said stamp. I digress.)
This spring I have seen lots of my perennials sprouting up from the ground, some even when snow was still on the ground! I spent this past Saturday morning digging up and separating my perennials that have all gotten too big, and I always feel so much better after doing that! (Well, my legs don't feel better, they hurt in places I didn't know I had muscles.) I also put down mulch to cover up all the weeds that are starting to sprout...hopefully they don't take over my thinned out perennial garden!
Thinking of the pretty flowers that are sprouting, I decided to make two cards using my Memory Box "Prim Poppy" die and a Martha Stewart lace border bunch. I let the patterned papers do the work on my cards...no ink needed!
The little pink bow die from Memory Box is called "Crisp Bows." I just cut off the bottom and kept the bow, adding a matching gem for some fun.
Here is a second card using the same poppy and border dies but different patterned paper in the background (and a little bow):
So? What ideas are SPROUTING in your head this week? I can't wait to see!
Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). Check out the amazingly creative cards by our Design Team and Guest Designer this week, too!
