Springtime ~ Stamp Something


Goodmorning Everyone! Well, it doesn't feel like spring outside for us today. After a few days of warm weather that had all the snow melting away, we are back to pretty cold temperatures again. I am not worried though. This week-end while the kids and I were outside, we spotted the v-formations of Canada Geese returning home. To be exact, we heard them first and then searched the skies to see where they were! It was so sweet to hear my 2 older children explain to the little one that the geese had come home because they know it is spring-time in Canada! For us, it is the true harbinger of Spring-time and it never fails to thrill me to see them flying in the skies.

The card I have for you today is for the Stamp Something challenge which is to create something that reminds you of spring. Well, I don't have any Canada geese stamps so I used this darling one from Whimsy Stamps. Spring-time is always umbrella time and Emma looks so sweet with her brolly and in her little boots. I colored her to match my DP and although the colors are not your typical spring ones, I just love them. Before I forget, if you love Basic Grey DP (and who doesn't?) Whimsy is also selling Basic Grey on their web-site! Yippee!


  • Stamp: Whimsy Kids Collection: Emma with Umbrella
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Chocolate Chip & Parisien Breeze
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Making Memories Brads, SU Taffeta Ribbon
Hope you enjoy your day!

Fabulous card Jeanette and I loved your spring time story too. :) Love the papers and that fun layout, so interesting with the ribbon. Fabulous coloring on the image! Hope it warms up soon, it's cold here again too. But the Robins are hunting for worms so that's always a good sign. :)
