Hello and Happy Spring Peeps! Hope the weather is getting better and warmer where you live. Welcome back to my little blog.

We have a great new challenge at HMFMC and our wonderful Teamie- Lorraine Aquilina -is hosting with the theme of... * Springtime* 
Here's my take.... 
Stamps: Stampabilities, House-Mouse Designs, Happy Hoppers "Puddle of FUN ", Stock#HMPR1062, from the year 2006.
Paper: Metallic Textured Sky Blue CS, White Heavy CS Paper, DCWV Spring DP
Ink: Copics
Accessories: Spellbinders Dies, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Cuttlebug EF, White Satin Ribbon, Stickles, Adhesive Rhinestones
Techniques: Dry Embossing
Oh-no~ I just realized that the background DP was glued down upside down!   LOL!!  Ooops!!!  Thats what I get for creating in the middle of the night!  Ha! It's gonna bug me so I'll have to fix that and repost at some point....
