A Berry Great Day

How is it March Break already??  Seriously, it feels like my son just had Christmas break like 2 days ago, and now it is March???  I know life has been hectic lately, but this is starting to feel a bit ridiculous. 

Along with the crazy busy days has been some crazy weather and today I would like it to feel like late Spring and not early Spring... so with that in mind, I picked up the super cute Berry Best Stamp Set (C1759) and the So Much Happy Paper Collection.  For the card design, I used this week's sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, and I was inspired to create this very laid back, day out in the country Spring card.

I love the white daisy "cross-stitch" pattern on the lemon yellow paper, and the flower pattern is just too cute! I mixed them with Kraft Paper, and the colours just pop out at you. The Berry Best stamp set is adorable, the stamping of the strawberries and leaves onto the bowl was way easier to line up than I thought it would be.  This stamp…

We are fast approaching the end of February, and I need some SPRING!  The mild, wet coast has been having some very cold temperatures and snow this month in amongst the freezing rain and heavy fog that I am used to. Today is clear and sunny but cold so like everywhere in Canada a warm spring cannot come soon enough.  Needing a little happy spring brightness I choose to use the pretty flower paper from the So Much Happy Paper Packet for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
The pretty sketch lent itself to a pretty card, and I used Peach cardstock from my half doily, and the doily is from the Cricut Artiste Collection (retired).  The laurel leaf branch (cut out in Clover) is from the Cricut Flower Market Collection.  The sentiment is from the Know I Care (C1752) stamp set, and it is stamped in Sapphire.  The pretty butterfly is from the Butterfly Friendship Stamp & Thin Cuts (Z4263) stamped in Sapphire and Lemon.  I also lightly sponged the edge of my card and the peach doily…

In amongst all the other specials that came out in December, the new Seasonal Expressions launch on January 1st and  National Papercrafting month is this beautiful paper collection called "Happy Heart" was released.  It is lovely and will be available until the end of February.

I have done a few projects with it and I am planning some beautiful layouts!  Here is a quick Valentine's Day Card that I created for my make and take for my open house a few weeks ago.

I know the card isn't "perfect," but I like that the stamping is a little off and my card has a few imperfections, just like love.



Happy Crafting!
