I Quite Like Your Smile!

Hello Crafty Friends!  Spring Break is here!  Yipee!  Starting it out with a lazy Saturday, much appreciated! I've been working on wreath orders but I took a break as I had an idea, I wanted to play along with the Monday Mood Board at WPlus9 Design Studio!  I don't have any bunny stamps but I loved the colors and wanted to play with my set Embroidered Bouquet again, but with the individual stamps this time!

And the Monday Mood Board Photo:

I stamped the different flowers and leaves with Hero Arts Butter Ball, Mementos:  Pear Tart and Sweet Plum.  I decided where I wanted the sentiment from WPlus9 Design Studio's Quite Like You than lightly with a pencil I drew two lines and stamped and stamped the flowers, than I erased the lines carefully.  I also angled the paper so that I stamped straight not sideways (much easier)  I don't usually like to draw on a card with a pencil but for this design I really felt like I needed it!  Thankfully it erased well and didn't smudge!

Yesterday I spent the day volunteering at Ariel's school.  She had a garage sale in the morning, grades 1 to 3 have a garage sale with everything being a quarter and under to practice the use of money!  That was all morning than I volunteered with hot lunch and than shakers and movers (set up sanctuary since it's a gym during the week)  It was a lot of fun but boy was I beat!  For Ariel to sell I made a bunch of marshmallow pops:

And I pulled out the cute stamps to make mini coloring books:

They were a hit and she sold out early on!  Which is great as I may have stayed up till midnight working on all of these!  :>

Thanks for stopping by!

Love this card - so very delicate, and a perfect use of the white spaces! Very spring. Those treats look yummy - worth more than a quarter, but money is a great thing to learn about! Have a happy Easter, Anita.
