I got MY GIRL on!

At my house, it's kind of the season of "girl"....

This is the month when the BABY girl arrived... THIS baby girl arrived.... {back there around when the dinosaurs, and all, were doing their thing.. Ahem!} Anyway, April is a GIRLY month. That's all. Hence, this:

Well, Dawn's stamps didn't hurt the mood! {Have you CHECKED out the full reveal on her blog: OMG! BEAUTIOUS images, to be SURE!} I love GROUP release night: it's my FAVORITE!!! By then, we've all been inky fools and GROUP celebration just feels like the big recital! {I LOVE it!}

These stamps just start TALKIN' to me! They want to break out and run free with the herd
{and WHAT a herd it is!} ALL my W9 stamps start playin'... MORE materials start to kick up their heels - It looks a lot like MY horses did this evening when I had to recruit BOTH kids and a dog, to help me get my HORSES into their stalls! It's like a BIG old RODEO of stamps {and horses!}
... None of 'em can help themselves: it's spring! THAT'S... what I'm talking ABOUT!

For some more SURE fire signs of SPRING and other such stampalicious goodness, I do hope you'll click
on over to my delightful DT pals of Wplus9 Design!!!!! EVERYTHING'S blooming!



our DARLING guest designer for April....


Wahoooooooo! What fun we've had this week! I truly, truly hope you
were inspired! {I, SERIOUSLY, think we brought spring to California!} -
Sorry, I can't speak for your EXACT neck of the woods, but SERIOUSLY:
this time last week we were floating AWAY! Today, we were lathering up
the sunscreen and contemplating the Air Conditioner! {????????}

I know!

YOU are special to me: that's for SURE! Thanks for helping
me celebrate this exquisitely fun week of stampilicious joy!
Here's to a WONDERFUL month, and that ain't no April FOOL!

Yee Haw!

What a beautiful combination of color, girly sweetness, and springtime! This is wonderful, Elise! And I think we're going to get some of that warmth this weekend. We've had a LONG bout of rain and snow and gray skies. I'm ready to see the sunshine!

This card is so cute and fun and full of sweet details!! Wonderful job!! And I WISH it were spring in these neck of the woods...but our spring doesn't come for awhile. Sigh. :)

I just love the mischievous grin on that girl's face on your card! It might remind me of you somehow :) This is a totally cute card with all the gorgeous layering going on!!! I really like that sentiment panel and how you added the chipboard letters! Fabulous card, and I hope you're enjoying this wacky spring we're having! Have a super weekend too!
