Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Hope the week is going well for you!
I have a pretty little Spring-y card to share with you today, using some of my oh-so-large stash of Delightful Daisy DSP and the so-pretty Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set. Take a look-see:
I chose this layout for the Sketch Saturday Any-Sketch-challenge.
And I played along with the CAS-ual Fridays theme challenge.
I started with a piece of Delightful Daisy DSP and matted it on Tranquil Tide for the card front. The other side of that design was perfect for the color scheme, so I rounded the corners with the outside corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board and matted it on a similarly-rounded Tranquil Tide panel. Then I Fast Fuse’d it to the card front.
I wrapped a length of Crushed Curry 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the panels, securing it in the back with Fast Fuse.
For the art piece, I colored the adorable branch image from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set with my Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on Whisper White. Then I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add the little bird – colored with my Tranquil Tide and Melon Mambo Markers.
I cut the image out with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die and matted it on a scalloped Tranquil Tide oval – cut with the Ovals Layering Framelits. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to wind a few loops of Silver Metallic Thread behind the matted oval and then popped it over the top of the ribbon.
The Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts sentiment is stamped in Tranquil Tide on a strip of Whisper White. I rounded the corners with the Envelope Punch Board and added faux stitches with my Marker. Then I used some Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional to add it to the card.
I used Glue Dots to add a few Petal Passion Embellishments and a bow tied with the Crushed Curry 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. A few Pearl Basic Jewels finished off the card front.
On the inside, I added two more of the pretty little branches to a Whisper White panel.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another branch on the front…
…and a little more Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This is truly some of my very favorite DSP – is it yours, too?? And this Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts has the sweetest little line-drawing images in it – this little branch is just a small sampling! I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
Finn is a farm dog. With many duties.
He “helps” to bring in the horses.
He “helps” me spread the manure…
He “helps” me clean the stalls…
Oh – you think that looks more like…napping?
Well – how about this? This is him “helping” me put out hay for the girls.
It takes a trained professional to lay down squarely in the path between the hay stall and the hay destination!
It’s like he’s got a GPS in his brain!!
Talented little dude, huh? “Regular” dogs shouldn’t even try this. 🙂
