Sweet on You!

It's a brand new week and The TownScrapper, formerly Humble Pie, wants to start your week off with some inspiration so you can get your mojo going. So grab your favourite cup of tea or coffee and start your day off with a visit to the DT's Monday Showcase over at The TownScrapper.

Before we move onto my card, we've got lots of news to share over at The TownScrapper. Some I'll share today and the rest will be a surprise for Friday.

We'd like to warmly welcome our Guest Designer for the month of March, Krista. She is one super talented crafter so checkout her blog, Crafty Little Pigtails (love the name - lol) for all her wonderful creations.

A fond farewell (boohoo) to our fabulous February Guest Designer Bonnie. Pop by her blog, The Lucky Clucker, and you'll see why we'll miss working with her. Thankfully she's only a mouse click away and and her blog will have you both chuckling and inspired simultaneously. Always a pleasure to visit her so stop by and have a looksee.

We are delighted our February Guest Designer Zoe has agreed to continue with our DT and also take on an additional role as our Techie/IT Gal. Woohoo! Checkout her amazing creations on her blog, Make-it-Crafty, and be prepared for your mojo to get a kick-start.

Here's my card:
Sweet on You

I am also submitting this card into 2 challenges:
  1. Wags 'n Whiskers - freestyle.
  2. A Spoon Full of Sugar - Pearls
My card features one of the newest Wags 'n Whiskers stamps, Steal a Kiss, which I fell in love with at Phebe's store, The TownScrapper. I knew the minute I spotted this stamp that it was going to be one of my faves and it just had to come home with me. Of course it was designed by the uber talented and super wonderful artist, Crissy Armstrong! I am forever in love with Crissy's images and this one is no exception! Image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and coloured with my handy dandy COPICS. The new Imaginisce papers ~ Twinkle Twirls, Lucy Bird & Daisy May ~ are also from The TownScrapper and I couldn't resist them and the Prima Caboodles flowers - just delish! I'm happy with how the card turned out and it makes me feel SPRINGY ~ maybe it's just wishful thinking after all the snow we've had this past week - lol!

Here's a close-up:
