Happy Spring!

Good morning peeps! The weekend is almost upon us! I'm super excited to just have a couple of days to kick it and regroup! Maybe a little cleaning, but the weather has been treating us so well, I don't want to be inside cleaning! Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend ahead of you!

I got some new goodies yesterday...YUM. Let's just say it was a box of pure delight! My most recent order from PTI...paper, ink, ribbons, buttons, stamps and a few die cuts! Oh my. I really just want everyone to leave me alone in my office for a few days...that would be so great! I'll take whatever time I can carve, and I have a little something to share with the first run out of the box!
I loved the little Egg Hunt set as soon as I saw it. As I opened my box of fun today, these beautiful colors just begged to be first in line. My colors today, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, and Berry Sorbet. I love the rich color palette that PTI offers, the colors just feel so rich and creamy! Oh, and let's talk about another think I love. I love the new PTI dies...they seriously ROCK.

So, my card for today. I stamped the white layer with Polka Dots 2 with Summer Sunrise and Lemon tart ink. I added a scalloped scallop Berry Sorbet border and then a tiny strip of Lemon Tart. My bow is Berry Sorbet and a Lemon tart button.

I cut a couple of eggs out, with a trip through the Big Shot, then stamped them with a couple different egg stamps from the Egg Hunt stamp set. I mounted the eggs, the Lemon Tart one with dimensional adhesive, then stamped my little sentiment, in Berry sorbet ink. My last touch was the corner chomper to the bottom two corners.

Oh, it was fun. I'm looking forward to the weekend and more time with my new stash! Oh, and as I was putting the goods away I organized my ribbon by color(again) and it looks so pretty in my Ribbon Clip-it-Up! My daughter just walked in-she is 5. She said, "Oh, Mom! Your ribbon looks so pretty! You put all the same colors together...it looks so great!" I'm so happy that my daughter even noticed...it made me happy!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you Monday!
