From Snow to Spring

Today's Featured Stamper of SCS was Ann from ardodd - what a wonderful gallery she has - check it out! I selected the pumpkin card to case because the beautiful black "lace" caught my eye. I decided to use my Lattice die again - which made me think of a garden trellis and got me using "Garden from the Heart" for the first time. It's one of the great new sets in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalogue.
I'm also using this card for the Clean and Simple challenge over at Our Creative Corner.

Although I would love to be in my garden - we have only started the year - and that means
January snow.....which is also good. I cased this layout from someone's blog and I am extremely sorry to say that I don't remember who it was. I just loved the "hill" of snow and the different sized letters. I'm hoping to use this layout for a scrapbook class later this month.

So, school starts again tomorrow and I'm hoping I'll be able to stay in my stamping room in the afternoons.....I'm feeling very optimistic! Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday -
