Spring Bouquet


Happy Friday! I am sooo excited for this Saturday as the Creating Keepsakes Convention will be here in the St. Louis area (Collinsville IL to be precise).  My three very good 'crafty' girlfriends and I are taking a class together & then going for dinner. I signed up for an earlier class & plan on getting to the convention extra early for some extended shopping time. The convention always has the latest products and plenty of special deals. But most of all, I have such a great time with these girlfriends. Enough blabbering... Here's my take on the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge (SC327) and the CR84FN22 challenge to use craft, green and brown colors. 
Supplies:
Stamps: Breath of Spring (JustRite); Teeny TIny Wishes (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery, White, DP- Best of K&Co stack
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Momento), SU Markers- Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade
Accessories: Embossing folder- Swiss Dots (Cuttlebug), Green Pearls, felt butterfly (Michael's), Oval punches (SU)

Thanks for stopping by, 
Marilyn
